My girls are excited to come to school everyday! We moved I gave them an option to change schools, they wouldn't have it. The Teachers & Support staff are amazing. A lot of them have been at mint for 15+ years. They happily attend many after school events. Many of their doors are open to help students during recess. Mint has a lot of student groups, and a great Academic program. Proud Parent!

Mint Canyon is a great school with an outstanding staff who goes above and beyond everyday to ensure the students get a quality education. Because we're a small school, students easily learn the names of all the teachers and you'll often see primary students excitedly waving to upper grade teachers. Us upper grade teachers always give them an equally enthusiastic greeting in return. Many of our lessons have a technology component embedded into it, as we're constantly striving to deliver well-planned out and comprehensive lessons. It's a terrific school with a lot to offer the community.

I am a PROUD parent of a Mint Canyon graduate. I can honestly say that my child recieved a great education at this school. The teachers and staff really give it thier all. It has a good family atmosphere. She continued on to Jr High and is still using all her academic skills that she learned at Mint to thier fullest. I would definately recommend this school to any family.

My daughter is in kindergarten at Mint and I have been impressed with all she is learning, how much she LOVES school and her amazing teacher since we attended the parent information night for incoming kinder students last year. All the teachers and staff work hard to make sure the students succeed and achieve their full potential. I am in amazement every day with how much my daughter learns and grows while at Mint. The JET program is a great benefit and learning opportunity for the kinder students as well. Thank you everyone for taking such great care of my little girl and starting her schooling career off better than I even hoped it would be!

This is an awful school!!! If you want your children to be educated by a bunch of teachers who simply gave up on their profession, by all means enroll you child here!!! I have received homework assignments printed on the back of a teachers request to leave the school district. My kids HAD to go here as the good schools such as Golden Oak were full. DO NOT send your kids to this school!!

Mint Canyon is an absolutely fantastic school. The population is small. Both the principal and the teachers know all my children by their name as well as mine and my husbands. Parent support and involvement is great. I truly love this school and the staff. All are superb!

Mint Canyon is a hidden gem! It is secluded in the hills of Canyon Country and is staffed by some of the BEST teachers in the SCV! It has a small town feeling and the teachers treat me and my children like family! I am proud to say we are part of the Roadrunner Family!

Mint Canyon is great elementary school. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The PTA is very involved. There is a great sense of community where everyone knows everyone else. Mint Canyon is the best kept secret in the Santa Clarita Valley.

I think Mint Canyon is the worst school my son has ever attended. The principal is awful. I warn all parents. Choose a different school.

Mint Canyon is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers who work well together. There are a few after school activities, but not many. Parent involvement seems to be very high. Always lots of assemblies and fieldtrips for the children. Special Ed teachers are terrific also. School grounds are beautiful as the school was recently rebuilt. Library is excellent, computer lab is up to date, science lab is also great.
