We live in the area so we have no choice for our daughter but to go to Wolf Canyon. We were very lucky! I love the principal and the teachers who try to make learning fun. My child is motivated to go to school, they don't stress out the family and kids with too much homework. Wolf Canyon creates a balance between learning and quality time with family/friends. So happy our daughter go to this school!
I don't usually write a review. But I just wanted say I totally agree with the review wrote by parent on 6 March 2014. I've been feeling exactly the same!!! ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS THE TEST SCORES.
This school lacks leadership, communication and compassion throughout most of the staff to include office and teachers! They don't care about enrichment or student growth, just the test scores. The morning messages are a waste of time. I cannot wait for this school year to be over so I no longer have to deal with this school! Or I might actually get him into a different school! Just because it's a new school and it looks fantastic doesn't mean it is superb!
This is a great school. The teachers clearly work as a team, communication is amazing and I love the morning messages that mean so much to the children and the adults. I am thankful that I have such a caring group of educators. The principal has done a nice job making this school great.
Very disappointed... Most reviews are great for this school and I was excited to enroll my children since we moved to the area. I wish I could write all the details why I give the school only one star... My children still go to this school (unfortunately), so I can't write exactly what happened. I could say some teachers are great! But the principal...all because of her we consider transferring our children to the different school near the area. Again, VERY disappointed.
This school is awesome! love the teahcers and love the principal. My daughter enjoys going to her kindergarten class every morning and I am confident she is getting the best education.
This is an excellent school. The teachers are good and very dedicated.My kids were from private schools but I was amazed when I found out that this school has done remarkcably well in their API scores, the quality of time and dedication they put into their students were great, well done Wolf Canyon! I could compare them to private school! I'm so pleased and happy that I finally found a great school for my kids!
My son's kindergarten teacher was excellent this year! He had an outstanding experience. The standards are high, and he was continually challenged. But he loved it and learned a great deal. The school emphasizes values such as honesty and respect. It is a great learning atmosphere. The principal is amazing.
JUDGE YOUR SELF....My son is been in Wolf Canyon since kindergarten in SpecialDayClass. Now he is going to fifth grade. academically he have done progress by mainstreaming for two classes to regular ed classes. he struggle with transition but he tried his best. I always been a fighter for him in the IEP meetings despite that they used to reject my recommendations for the benefit of my child. recently my son life is not been easy since her baby sister is fighting for her life due heart surgery and also myself as a consequences of Rheumatoid Arthritis I been having flares. On top of that the school just decide to change to other school. "because there was to many students in his class". I can recall Wolf Canyon Vision that says "... mental and emotional stability is necessary for growth and learning" . there is no doubt that numbers and personal interests can be over a child heart and needs.
Since we moved from NJ to Chula Vista 2 years ago i thought my son would not have that same wonderful learning experience he had at the Holy Spirit Catholic School. This school is a blessing and despite the high teacher-student ratio i hope the learning quality stays the same or even more. The principal and teachers are wonderful. The lessons are not extra ordinary but the challenge the teachers are doing to the kids are encouraging. They teach children not only to be smart academically but socially learning respect, hard work, perseverance, honesty and all the virtues we parents hope our children to learn. The parents involvement on every activities as so heart warming. Music class it something my son enjoys. I hope soon the school will work on their sports activities as well.
I have 2 children at Wolf Canyon, the teachers are excellent and the principal she is an amazing person who cares for all the children at Wolf Canyon. The school's atmosphere feels like one big family and its all about the KIDS. love this school.
There is a familiy feeling enviroment for parents and children. My boy loves his school and he goes every day with enthusiasm and the learning process is easier. For Us the best school.
I'm cheking all the reviws because I want to move my daugther to dther school she is in Kindergarden currently and I see all the good comment about Wolf Canyon School I hope I can register her there.
I LOVE THIS SCHOOL, THE PRINCIPAL IS WONDERFUL!!!.. I THINK SHE REALLY ENJOY OF BEING WITH THE KIDS
This is my son's 2nd year. He is currently in the 5th grade. He attended two other public schools prior to Wolf Canyon and I am very pleased with the leadership here in comparison to his prior schools. The principal is very family-oriented and inspirational, while at the same time she is very serious about the students' success. I love her energy and enthusiasm during the morning program that she conducts on the blacktop daily and I appreciate her open-door policy. Additionally, I could not be happier with my son's teachers. They have been awesome. My son recently mentioned that he aspires to be a teacher! Needless to say, his current teacher has made such a positive impression upon him.
This is a great school.I'm so happy with the principal and teachers. My daughter enjoy her school very much.
I am really proud that I get to be a part of what is going on at this school. We have something very special here.
The principal is great, the school is new and the scores are improving.
My son attended kindergarten last year and now is a 1st grader. I value the respect and learning atmosphere that his teacher provides to each individual student. I'm looking forward to the years to come that we continue having a positive experience with learning.
my son and daughter have been going to this school we love it. great message in the morning for student and parents and great events during the year. Mr. Ly great teacher that my kids ever had.
