    "When I first came to this school 4 years ago, I was told by parents that this is a great school unless your child is struggling academically. I found this to be true. If your student does well academically, then this is a great school. However, if they struggle, then don't put them in this school. The school does not offer any help academically. The will say that they offer tutoring, but this tutoring occurs during the very class the student is struggling in. So the teachers don't want to recommend this course of action. Apart from that, no help. They will recommend that YOU get a tutor for your child and pay for it. So we have paid close to $2000.00 over the years in tutoring fees. This school is only interested in the academically strong kids and personally, I think they are more than happy to weed out the struggling kids so they can keep their school high rating. I have never felt less supported in a school, than in this one."

    "Sycamore Canyon is a better than average school but not quite my "ideal" school. The majority of the teachers my child has had in the past were wonderful and caring and maintained parent communication throughout the year (not so much in grades 4 and 5). The bullying that goes on in the middle school is a problem that must be addressed by the adminstration. It does exist but is completely ignored by the staff. School to parent communication is mediocre at best - mostly relying on telephone messages or verbal student messages. I don't want to spend my family time on the computer on the school website after being on a computer all day at work. I miss the paper messages. My child maintains all A's and B's through her hard work at home and her good teachers. All in all, I like the school and am glad to be a part of the Sycamore family."

    "This is a good school because of the neighborhood - most parents hold advanced degrees and pay close attention to the education of their kids. There are very dedicated teachers - every day we see some teachers walking out when we pick up kids from Childcare after 5:30PM. But also some teachers could not remember students names after a whole school year (my kid had a teacher like that before). From my own experience, the previous principal was responsive to parents concerns and I felt he cares about the students. I do not see that from the current principal - he listens to you with a pre-determined decision so it is a waste of time. It is very frustrated but understandable - in the end it is OUR 24 hour job as a parent but only his 8 hour day job, why bother. Overall I am dissappointed about the school's leadership. This is virtually one elementary school and one middle school, maybe too big for one principal to handle."

    "Beginning the 6th year at Sycamore and I feel lucky to have this school in my neighborhood. It is a great facility, with strong teachers who deliver results both in API scores and with individual students. I find it easy to get involved in the classroom, as the art parent, and overall. The after school enrichment is plentiful and the on-site after school child care is so good that my son is delighted to go. I agree that the parent/teacher/administration communication could be better but that is a two way street. I have found everyone to be very responsive to my questions and concerns, you just have to speak up. The opportunities for improvement: 1. Add a more extensive/inclusive GATE program 2. Stop adding trailer style classrooms to the campus 3. Prioritize parent communication & requests feedback - especially when breaking new ground (example - I found out my son would have a "team" of 2 teachers that would trade off on different days of the week at back to school night, weeks after school started and though it was an "experiment" I was not asked once the entire year for my comments on how it was working. This was a big miss on the part of the teachers/administration.)"
