We had our son in private school and decided. In 3rd grade to put him in public. It was a huge change from private to public but his teachers and the staff were amazing to help both him and I adjust to going from a class room of 15 kids to 35. The staff always follows through with what they say they are going to do and go above and beyond.
Great schoo my daughter goes to school there the teachers are great and always available.My daughter is in second grade now but she had agreat first grade teacher in Ms.poole that prepare her for the next grade. The principle is great very involved and always willing to listen to concerns from parents.I love the school and I would highly recomended.
This was the first year with Deer Canyon Elementry. My Grandson attended first grade this year, his teacher Miss Poole was awesome. The whole staff has been awesome, communication was great, lots of parental involvement.
I LOVE this school. Not only did I attend Deer Canyon from K through 6 but now my daughters are attending there as well. I was prepared and ready for Jr. High and now have a Masters. I am a school psychologist. Deer Canyon was where I began to love school and learning! I see the same thing in my daughters - they LOVE Deer Canyon as well. Anytime I have concerns I can email the teacher and get a response the same day. I have nothing but positive things to say about Deer Canyon Elementary School! I am ALWAYS welcome in the classroom whenever I have a day off and my girls don't. Anytime I want to volunteer I can even when I notified the teacher the day of. Way to go Deer Canyon!!!
My child has attended Deer Canyon for four years. Unfortunately this school does not promote or encourage parental help in the classroom, even when it is offered. This is very disappointing since it is in the child's best interest to have family involved in their education as much as possible. My child's third grade teacher hasn't responded to emails either. Where is the feedback? Where is the parent/teacher teamwork? One thing I can see is strong principle leadership at Deer Canyon.
Deer Canyon is a wonderful school I have Two children that are current students and one that is now at Los Osos High School. The teachers are great and the principal is wonderful. My high school student was well prepared for Jr high and High School.
I havetwo children, one a foster child, in Kindergarten at Deer Canyon. My foster child is behind and delayed because he has never attended school before. My other child is near the head of her class. I love this school,the teachers, and administrators. They have been super sensitive to my childrens' 'different' family and my kids' needs. Both of my children have blossomed in this school and are thriving. The teachers have been available to us and extremely helpful. My foster son is receiving speech therapy and is set up for counseling through the school to help him gain coping skills to deal with being removed from his biological parents. Deer Canyon might not be new and beautiful, but it is what's on the inside that counts. In this case, you will find caring teachers who are committed to their students' success.
