    "With the new principal things have been going downhill since August. The bullying has escalated to such a degree that my kids are afraid to go to school."

    "I've worked at this school for 8 years now. The work environment is wonderful and the community is lovely. I moved my daughter over from another school to be here with me and she really excelled. I love it here and, though I've had several opportunities, would not work anywhere else!"

    "Deer Canyon is a prototypical teach-to-the-test 21st century school. The district, and therefore the school, is only motivated to do well on standardized tests. To that end it is arguably the highest ranked elementary school in the district according to STAR results. The principal is very talented and gives a great deal of his personal time to the school but tends to support his teachers over the students. Therein lies the problem. The teachers, for the most part, do not make the child their first priority. Students may do well on tests, but what have they actually learned? Parent involvement is great but this reinforces the teachers adherence to a rigid curriculum that puts a lot of the responsibility on the parents. Extra-curricular activities are only available because of the PTA and its foundation that funds these activities. A stay at home mom or dad is a must for this school."
