I think the start of using the Core standards will help bring Wiley Cyn Elementary up in Star testing rankings. I have high hopes for this procedure. I'm excited to see what the new year brings. The PTA all seem very caring about bringing the best for the kids.

I agree with others that have stated that this school USED to be the best in the valley. After a change in administration, this school lacks communication, a family feel and seems to be more concerned with the ESL students, than the lower API scores. With my other two children, I was very pleased with everything about the school, including the teachers and how they were taught. They were definitely prepared for Junior High and beyond. But sadly this is not the case with my child currently in the school. They are always bringing homework home that has mistakes on it, being given tests after they've been absent and those scores are placed on their report card, was never taught that spelling was important and has a teacher that doesn't want to be there. So now I have a child that I feel is not prepared for further school years at all. At one point I was thinking of homeschooling. Now, I wish I had or at least transferred to another school when I had the chance. I'm sad that I have to write such a review. I really used to love this school.

When I talk to my friends who have kids at other NDS school. I feel like my child is missing out on so many things. The school is more concerned with helping the English learners and the English speaking kids are left to fend for themselves. If you question this read the schools mission statement. Is this what I pay taxes for? If I could afford it I would put my child in private school. The schools should be uniform district wide. The district makes it impossible to transfer to one of the good schools in the district. Please, address the needs of the child who's first language is English.

This was once the best school in the santa clarita valley! Not so true now. My kids have been in this school the past 4 years and have always been very pleased... till a change in major office staff that came in and has changed everything. Test scores have droped and my kids are not happy about going to school anymore! I will be pulling my kids from this school now!

I have a 4th grader & he has been at Wiley for 2 1/2 years. I am very happy with the school as a whole. We came from another very ditiguished school in Santa Clarita & I worried, but I am very, very happy!

I have a second grader and a kindergartener here. I have been extrememly pleased with the academic level as well as the teachers I have met. Principal Yannich is awesome. She is a strict administrator with high expectation and the students rise to the occasion. She knows the name of each child in school. Parent involvment is high and the extra programs such as computers, art and music are top-notch. Mrs. Gruss, the music teacher, deserves special mention. She is an incredible teacher and the students look forward to music. We feel very fortunate to have a public school of this caliber available to us.

Class sizes very large generally - but teachers have a lot of experience and the quality is good, though generally not individualized. Staff and teachers are caring, invested. Currculum is stiff, often uninteresting. A little conservative for my taste, but so is the area generally.

Parents are always kept informed of not only their children's progress but also of the many functions that take place at the school.
