Sycamore Junior High School has potential to be the top Junior High School in Anaheim. Mr. Carmona, the school principal inspires Teachers, students, and parent involvement with his tremendous support. Truly shows how committed everyone is to bringing the best possible education to all the students. There are many programs to assist the students and their parents. PTSA is committed to bring up parent involvement to empower parents and their families. Safety is the number one priority of the school. We are blessed to have an amazing staff at Sycamore JHS who my daughter enjoys! She had perfect attendance last year and has earned many awards and acknowledgement from her dedicated teachers. Sycamore Junior Honor Society has taught my daughter many skills such as leadership, time management and to do community service in Peer Court and more. The school counselors are amazing! They strive to go the extra mile. Thank you Sycamore JHS, you are paving the path to success for every student who have the potential to be very bright ready for High School and beyond!
Sycamore Junior High School is amazing!! My son has always attended a private school, this is his first year at Sycamore and the teachers are very attentive. His counselor is prompt in regards to responding to emails and making appointments. The teachers are readily available to help for extra tutoring!! Great Job
Luv the school!!! I'm a new PTA member for these coming year 2011-2012 and I have encounter wonderful Parents, Teachers, Students, Office Staff and a GREAT Principal tha is willing to go an extra mile for the Sudents and the Parents! I would like to invite YOU PARENTS to join our PTA and become a Legislative Advocate for YOUR kids School.
Sycamore Junior High is a very good school. There are a lot of resources to help studentsachieve. I know for a fact that 100% of the teachers is highly qualified in their subject; about 70% of them hold a master's degree as well.
it is a great school and is getting major help from cal state fullerton and im proud of going to that school.
I am a student right now attending sycamore jr high and i have to say its the best jr high school around sure most students grades aren't so well but everyone tries hard and everyone's friendly to each other
I think you really missed the mark on this ranking. Sycamore is a great school. It is probably the best keps secret in the AUHSD. The teachers are terrific, the principal outstanding and the students well behaved. If any student needs help there are a number of programs to help! We have parents nights each month that over 300 parents attend. That is parent involvement!!!
I went to this school and i absolutley loved it. The teachers there are awesome and always willing to help students or teachers, they get involved in school activities, and are just hardworking people. Grades and scores are not the best here because most ofthe students don't care. And blaming the teachers is ridiculous because they do the best they can with what they are given with.
This Jr High school has a good music instructor. He is great with the kids and started a competing drumline. They have a special class to help the kids with study habits and homework issues.
Having my child attend this school was a huge mistake and will do all I can not to have her attend any schools in anaheim. Amazing how we are so well known for the entertainment aspect, but when it comes to education...how sad! If it weren't for the teachers to help me through the 2 yrs wirh my child, I don't know what I would have done. Even though the teachers were amazing, I had difficulties with administration. They did not understand that they must communicate with me about my child and not wait until the last week of school to let me know what was really going on. It is very unorganized and hope that they improve their standards. I have been in more than enough times to express my concerns as well.
My child attended 7th grade at this school, he will not be going back. This school and the district as a whole, with the exception of a couple of schools, is in need of some serious help. My child was issued one book for math and none for science, history or English. And while his teachers seemed knowledgeable in their areas, it seemed at times that they were more concerned about giving detentions for chewing gum in class than helping students after school. I tried several times to set up an appointment to talk to his science teacher and she never seemed to be available.
