Mint Canyon is a terrible school!!! The teacher's seem to simply not care about their students. My child's teacher is rarely in attendance and the class has been taught by a series of substitutes. The school only seems to care about their latest attempt at fund raising. It is no wonder this school has seen a steady decline in it's enrollment. I would not recommend this school to anyone

This school really tries to bring out the school spirit and the students greatly participate. I love that. Also, the teachers are very nice and will help students progress in any way they can. My son goes here and THANKFULLY no complaints from either one of us! :)

Mint Canyon is a great school at times, but can be quite cheap. They had field trips until 2007. They've changed ever since, no more field trips. They do have great teachers in all grades! They need to work on how they spend their money, that's all. If they saved money they can have field trips, 6th grade dances, more fun activities, etc. Overall, Its a good school. I should know myself I was a student there.

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.
