Canyon crest is a great school with excellent staff. My daughter had ms.lablanc as her kindergarten teacher and I was very pleased because my daughter learned to read and write very well. I'm glad to start a new year at this school.
My daughter attended p-k, the program was OK, but I think the teacher and the assistant from the morning class were very hard with the kids. I don't mean bad. But I felt that they need to be a little more warming with the kids they are just 3-5, they are just starting the long path of school life, and the cold welcoming will afraid some of them.
I agree with some of the parents, 2014-2015 was the worst year for my son. I did not like the fact that my son started second grade with a sub, instead of advancing and learning more, he got stock at all. The principal uhuuu sounds very motivated but to me she is not. She listen to your concerns but just that, there is no actions taken. Other problem was the discipline methods they use, in my son classroom other kids always mess with his stuff everyday, and I talked with teacher several times and she kept sitting my son next to problems kids. You will think they would do smething to deal with the problems but in reality they do anything. Rating for second grade teaches -0.
My son has attended this school since kindergarten. In first grade he needed to switch teachers due to the teachers "flexible" teaching style. This year in second grade he started a school with a sun, now in December he is on his third teacher. Some of the subs have send work home that said did with teacher and it was I correct. I let the principal know and she just put in a new teacher. I will need to pull my child out of this school so he can get a. Education. I. Addition, my kindergatener was having trouble sitting and being quiet. He was overwhelmed by the number of students. The trachea sute how to deal with him and allowed him to walk around during group and gave him a corner to Hum in. He needed to learn how to behave not allowed to do it. I put hi. I. Private school and he needs occasional redirection but is doing fine. There is not any support at this school if you are unhappy with the education they receive. I am going to have to pull both my kids out so they can get an education. Very disappointed in this school.
When we moved, it was already 3 months into the academic year, it was the only available option for us, so I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. My daughter is only in kindergarten but was tested at the beginning of the year of reading at a second grade level, now she struggles with simple sentences. They leave kids because they are doing well.
Canyon Crest Elementary is the school my daughter goes to and is in the 4th grade.She has a wonderful teacher Mrs. Chase. My daughter loves this school as well as myself. The school is clean and the staff is very friendly and professional. I'm so glad we get to attend this wonderful school
I believe this school is the greatest school in Fontana! I had 3 children attend this school and never had a problem with any of the teachers. The teachers here motivate and challenge students. I have been very fortunate to have great teachers such as Ms. Sevilla, Mr. Blevins, Mr. Mason, and Ms. Ortiz. All my children are high achievers and as a parent I expect my children to acheive in all areas and life.
I was very surprised to see that the score for this school was so low. They won the California distinguished school award in either 2006 or 2007. My kids have done exceptionally well at this school. They were teaching beginning reading of sight words in Preschool, and my children were reading quite well in Kindergarten. They have an excellent staff whose main concern is the advancement of the children, and involving the parents.
I think this school has teachers that are dedicated to helping students succeed and they love teaching. When I looked in the test score category I saw that the scores improved above what was expected. The students with disabilities subgroup did not show as much growth, but I'm confident that these dedicated teachers will continue helping all students succeed. Watch out, the new principal and the PTA want to hear from you. They love the school and the children and they want to make Canyon Crest the very best. I must admit that I would like to see more extra-curricular activities.
