17 Parent Reviews for Wood Canyon Elementary School

Wood Canyon is a great school with many patient staff and talent teachers. My kids were not only new to the school but also new to US and English. The teachers in WC helped them with great effort and they grow to love US and now speak fluent English within 1 year. The YMCA onsite is very organized and ...  Read more

Most teachers here are excellent. Of course every school has a few that are notorious yellers or are apathetic, but given the union protections out there, I don't think you can fault the school or principal for that. We have had 4 teachers and every one of them has been great. To address other reviewers ...  Read more

The staff is so bad here. The front office is an unhappy bunch and my child has been going here for 2 years. Now, my child education is great here. But the staff, teachers included should practice what they teach.

My Son is in Kindergarten. He has a teacher that means well and has plenty of experience. Her practices are old school and she has a bland personality. The Principle also clearly means well but she is completely and utterly overwhelmed. The kids are missing out on so much. I look forward to not ...  Read more

My son is a special needs student at this school and his new teacher in RSP is terrific. I disagree with the other parent that says no one cares about special needs students.

My 1st son goes to this preschool and we love Mrs. Scinico, the teacher, so much. My son is really a hard one to handle but she and her assistant sure have A LOT of patience with him and the other handful kids. He know how to read, write his name and manners in his very early age. We are so thankful ...  Read more

This school is very hostile towards parents of special need children. The staff are rude and do not care for the kids. They just care about squeezing kids into a 1 size fit all approach, not about individual needs of children. We have had really bad experience and would never send my children there again.

We moved to the midwest, in large part to get away from this school. A large portion of the school day is devoted to drop-off and pick-up procedures, none of which are well managed. Our child began kindergarten and attended 1.5 years of preschool on the grounds, and every single communique from teachers ...  Read more

This is my daughters first year at Wood Canyon and I was a little apprehensive to have her go here initially since they score so low but because of where we live I didn't have a choice. I know it's early in the year but so far I am unhappy with this school and would not recommend it. Firstly, they haven't ...  Read more
