    "I don't know about the school as a whole, but on December 6 and 7, 2014, I had the misfortune of being on the same flight as their girls' basketball team flying out of Phoenix back to Burbank. I say Dec 6 and 7 because the flight on Saturday night was cancelled and we had to wait until the next day. At the gate on Saturday night, they loud, rude, jumping up on chairs, yelling and appeared to have no adult supervision. There was one lady who seemed to be the coach or the assistant coach and did nothing about it. The next morning some of the girls were seated around the exit rows by the wings. As we were pulling back to the gate, we stopped suddenly, sat for about 10 minutes, and then were told by the captain that we had to go back to the gate. As the flight attendant explained it, the girls refused to comply with exit row requirements, also refused to put their carry-ons in the overhead compartment and called the flight attendant the B word and many other curse words. We pulled back to the gate when one became available and they were all removed from the plane. Whoever is in charge of that team -- coach, athletic director, etc -- needs to be fired."

    "Before faulting this school for failing to meet your child's needs, it is more important to find out what those needs are before enrolling her here. That being said, I am the father of a second-year student at SC and sending my child here was one of the best decisions we have ever made. As a gifted student with numerous musical accolades, my daughter used to snooze through her public school lessons while maintaining straight A's because the teacher was always going over the same material while spending the majority of her time on those who couldn't "get it." After her transfer to SC, this was no longer an issue since her teachers seem to adhere to their lesson plans. Although she is still getting her straight A's, she now she has to work a lot harder than ever before to earn them, especially with the competition around her. Granted, being in MS, she has classes such as Algebra 1 with high school jocks in attendance. However, her teacher hardly ever slows down for them and briskly breezes through the material. And I thank him for that-- for not wasting my money and my child's time. Thank you, Sierra Canyon."

    "As a former parent, I must say that at first I was thrilled with the school. Then our family had a financial nightmare that forced me to reconsider sending my kids there. The Finance Director offered to waive the interest on tuition. I found out from several other families when I was still debating what to do that they already had that deal. I heard from another former family that they were taken to small claims court over a small balance (around $1,000) after one of the parents was in a horrible car accident. When I transferred my children to another school I found that they were okay in their knowledge, but they were not able to get their work done in a timely manner. After talking to their teachers and my children, I found that they all had too much hand-holding at SCS. If I'm going to fork over $25k per child, I want a good education AND I want them to learn how to get their work done without constant assistance. From what I've heard from current parents who I am still friends with, the school is more interested in all of the famous and athletic families they can get. And don't even mention the multi-million dollar sports fields that we helped fundraise for that's empty!"

    "I am in process of looking for my two kids for the 2015 school year and was told about Sierra Canyon by a friend. I can't believe how right she was to send me here. I toured both the elementary and high school and found the facilities to be beautiful and inviting. I guess the thing that impressed me most was that every child or student that we came in contact with seemed really happy and was so polite and welcoming. This is definately a school at the top of my list."

    "Sierra Canyon affords students the opportunity to pursue their passions. Students can start clubs, voice their opinions in student government, and teachers always have open doors and are excited to engage in conversation and debate. Although the academics are challenging, the school environment is not too competitive. I love being part of such an accepting community."
