Love this school! The teachers we've had have been amazing and so involved in helping my kids do well. Love that our school is so small and not huge where no one knows anyone. Our new principal is great too!

My kids have had a very positive experience here at Knolls. The after school club is wonderful as well as some other after school programs offered. We have a new principal this year so we'll see if things keep improving.

I have had children at this school for several years now. I feel that there are a wide variety of teachers, so it is possible for children and teachers to be matched up adequately. We have been happy with most of our teachers, and have made an effort to be involved, so that our children have the best ...  Read more

This is a fantastic school. I know of many students who commute from other parts of town to go here (my kids included). I've never seen a principal who was better liked by the students than Dr. Porter and the teachers are great too.

I love this school. There are so many excellent teachers. My child had Mrs Tamac and Mrs. Landy. They both were caring and taught my son so much. I am proud to be a Knolls parent.

Knolls Elementary School
Simi Valley Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
