already being challenged in 7th grade Advanced Math. As a parent, I stayed involved on line with my son's progress and was part of helping a student get what he needs to advance. My son is an enthusiastic about to be 8th grader. My advice; stay involved with your child's learning. The school is all about helping your child be the best that he/she can be!

My son came from a private school in Los Angeles when he began 7th grade at Matilija Junior High School. It was obvious to the 7th grade English teacher that my son was bored. The principal telephoned me to let me know that after looking at my son's progress, the school decided to move him into 8th grade English. He was already being challenged in 7th grade Advanced Math. As a parent, I stayed involved on line with my son's progress and was part of helping a student get what he needs to advance. My son is an enthusiastic about to be 8th grader.

The teachers really care about educating our children. Sports are very organized and fun for the kids. Great coaches.

Not very impressed so far. My son started 7th grade last year and basically did no major report writing - no science projects - no studying for major tests and still got decent grades. How can a child go thru an entire year of jr high school barely crack a book and still be an A/ B honor roll student ?

My daughter is in her sencond year at Matilija and she is very happy with the teachers and programs. She is an honor student and in the Honor Society. There is a good drama program with a theatre with proper lighting. There are after school activities for kids to be involved in and they have transportation--- not just to and from school, but they have a late bus so kids can stay after school and participate! The kids are friendly and no gang or drug problems are evident. I had sons in the Simi Valley Unified School District. There were gangs, drugs, violence and no transportation and we lived 3 miles away from the school. We are very fortunate to have moved to Ojai!

I have been very happy with my 7th grade daughter's experience this year. She has excellent teachers and has made wonderful friends. She has participated in many clubs and extracurricular activities. Give it a chance!

Mr Becker indeed has the childrens best interest in mind.. He is constantly reminding the parents to stay involved in their childrens activities. He is also aware of the changes the kids are going through and the support they need from school and home. I think the kids see this and their own interest in school is heightened and they become more involved in the extra-cirricular activities. This was proven when the Honor Society Students were inducted last month. I think they felt proud to put that smile on Mr Beckers' face as well as all the parents.

This school is a joke, they do not even have a nurse. The teachers are all horrible except for a few. You would be better off broke sending your child to some small pravate school, because about 700 kids go to Matilija.
