Recently enrolled my three children Kindergarten thru third grade and I must say it has been a nearly good experience with the exception of my first grader. He had a very hard time transitioning. His first grade teacher was a bad experience and was very negative toward him which caused him to shut down. I was very upset however I was able to change his teacher and he has a great teacher and receiving excellent grades and made Star of the Week. Unfortunately his previous teacher did not possess the most important quality all teachers must display and that is compassion and patience. I do not recommend Ms. Buck as a teacher her attitude and uncaring demeanor has no place in the classroom with children. Presently making a formal complaint to school board. Overall school is great. Ms Craig is a n excellent teacher along with Ms. Venetez and Ms Johns.

I have been going to this school since i was in kindergarten and now I'm in 6th grade. All the teachers i have had are great, so i recommend mrs. Engle for kindergarten, Mrs. Sheldon for first grade,mrs. Picone for third grade, Ms. Johns for fourth grade, and Ms. Drew for sixth grade they are all very helpful and they are very kind.


Posted October 23, 2013

I'm very unhappy with the school. The teacher are unhappy and it shows! My child is in Mrs. Buck's class. At first I liked her and thought she was very nice and seemed to care about her students and seemed to enjoy teaching. She is very nice, but I don't think she cares. As of today I wish I could enroll her in a different school. I agree with other comments about the Mrs. Wehunt, and the bullying. Cimmarron claims to be bully free, but it isn't and the no one cares about it.

Cimmaron my daughter started kindergarten at this school this year 2013, so far we have had a very bad experience the first week of school was fine the second week she started crying. I continued to ask my daughter what was happening that made her cry she continued to tell me she was scared. Now that really upset me no child should be scared of attending school, so she told that soles kids keep kicking her calling her ugly just being bullies. This school stats that they don't tolerate bullying I first talked to the teacher I talked to the noon duties on 2 separate occasions on the 4th occasion I talked to the principal it took me 4 separate occasions to try to get things resolved and honestly they are resolved to a certain extent now for the past week and a half she has come home using profanity in Spanish that some kids have said to her in class since she looks Caucasian but we are or Hispanic decent this really bothers me. The favoritism is ridiculous it all depends on who you know just like everything else in society now days but these are children. Plus the teachers constantly complaining that they receive the lowest pay as teachers.

My kids went to Cimarron since kindergarten. We moved out of the zone and was kicked out so fast with a 1day notice. Not a week notice nor a month notice but a 1day notice! I requested a exception which was declined but the principal.. This school has many children out of the zone but for some reason my kids get kicked out and the others get to stay. I am very disappointed in this school. I volunteered alot of my time here, and even at that they are unconsiderate. Shows you how much they care for there kids... Especially the ones who started kinder there and have to be moved when they start 5th grade!! Im a very upset mother! !

This school is great. I have 5 children from kindergarten to 5th grade. The teachers are competent, the staff are helpful and the principal is hands-on. There are after-school programs that are worth the time like the chess club. The school encourages students to have good grades by having award ceremonies and they try to help students improve on their state test by rigorous preparation. There are also a lot of perks when you get awards like free burger at In-&-out Burger, free bowling tickets at Brunswick, free meal at Hometown Buffet . Kids are also encourage to read by giving out Magic Mountain tickets. Last year I joined the PTA and I got 4 tickets to Legoland!

I have two children at Cimarron a 3rd grader and a kindergardener. The teachers we've had so far are great. Ms Buck (1st grade) and Ms. Venetz (2nd grade) are great teachers. These are the kind of teachers you never forget as an adult. The school is also great at communicating with parents, I am able to email my sons teachers and I always get a response or feedback on my sons progress. The principal is great, and seems to know every single student by name. She's involved with the students, not locked in her office.

Great Principal and Staff Only thing for prospective parents is BEWARE or the abusive mrs rose she pulled my son from one side of the class to the other. this matter was out of the princiapls hand and was delt with the Palmdal School Distric. Sad to say she is protected by the teachers union i recommend Mrs Engle or Mrs Johnson they are great with the children

Cimarron has a marvelous principal, Mrs. Wehunt, she keeps her school in check, the school grounds neat, and the children prepared for all testing. She is a motivator and the test results demonstrate her hard work. The teachers are some of the best in the district and demand respect and they are committed to student motivation and results.

The staff of this school seem to have the best intenitons, but as our education system continues to fail, this school is definently going down with the ship. The school is desperate to raise scores on standardized tests, the students are hammered facts into their heads without fostering any love of learing. There are far too many students crammed into each classroom. Supervision and discipline are scarce. My son is constantly bullied, gets his lunch stomped on and his things stolen on a daily basis. He reports it to the staff staff, but has been repeatedly reprimanded for "tattling." I don't know whether they don't care, or are too short handed to manage all the kids.

I have had two sons attend Cimarron. One through the SDC program and another is still is regular ed. The teachers are fantastic. Every teacher my sons have had are hard workers, effective and easy to work with. My son who was able to be mainstreamed was not zoned for the school but I made sure he was able to come back because I like the office staff, teachers, noon duties and overall environment at the school.

I see most of the good reviews for Cimarron school comes from staff themself. That's what i call it conflict of interest. School is definitly below average as CST score shows and for 2010 rating, they scored lowered than 2009. Staff are more worry about their benefits and holidays than student's education.

Cimarron was a great school especially since i have been there for K-6th grade i feel very sad to leave it. I think that there are very great teachers especially my 6th grade teacher. I think that the school food needs to be a little bit more better once in a while instead of all of us not eating and skipping lunch to get energy. By, Vanessa 1e

I have a great opinion of this elementary school. Unfortunately, my two boys have had to attend 6 schools, this one by far has provided the best for them. The school has strict policies and rules that are enforced. The classrooms are new, clean, and have good teachers. My children did better with the higher expectations placed upon them from that school. Hope this helps.

This is my second time through, The first was when the school first opened, I would not have given it very high marks by the time my first child was done. Now however, I feel that the quality of the staff has improved greatly!

Coming from LA Unified School District in the San Fernando Valley I am very disapointed with Cimarron Elementary. I feel that they are very behind with achieving good test results. The teachers need to be involved more and take the time with the children helping them understand their classwork. Most of them close their classrooms and their ears as soon as the bell rings. They offer Math classes to the parents after hours but can't take the time to help the students. Is it that difficult to take a few minutes after school and help the students? I am lucky to be an at home Mom but what about all of those other hard working parents that are not able to help their children?

I feel over-all it's an above average school in most areas but more attention needs to dedicated to student behavior.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
