The principle Mr. Singh seems to be very involved and on top of any issues, which is great. My son's teacher Mrs. Larson is great and seems compassionate about education and the students. Overall, great school.

I love my sons school! I was worried about my son starting Kindergarten this year since he is one of the younger ones in his class but Mrs. Geis is by far a wonderful teacher and has years of experience. She is very organized and thorough. My son loves going to school each day. The afterschool program on site is excellent too for us working parents. I love the fact that they pick up my son from his classroom and escort him to the daycare center on campus. Kudos to Bannon Creek!

My kids have had some wonderful, caring teachers at this school. It would be nice to see a few more school and family activities. The Start program was too chaotic for my kids. The principal seems a bit cold and any friendly behavior seems fake. I've also seen her treat staff very poorly. Don't think she knew parents were around to see that.

Both my girls have attended here and they have great teachers! Principal is a little wacky but in a good way. Start program is awesome and staff is good.

My G/son is now attending kindergarten right now I have no complaints. He's doing great and his teacher Mrs Burnes is doing a wonderful job. soooo patient!

I feel Parental Voluntering is over rated in school pass the 3rd rade. At this point, teachers should have control and interest in the class and want children to be more independent from their parents, in school thought. Bannon Creek makes too much of an issue of parental volunteers. Teachers, do your jobs, thats what you are paid for. Not everyone has the availability to give 'time' during the day. You will find most of your parents, single parents, have to work.

If I knew before what I have experienced and know about Bannon Creek Elementary school, now; I would have never enrolled my child. I have watched this normally engaged, energetic, school loving A student, go to an unmotivated or school inspired C average performer. We will not be returning to BC next year.

After two years of parochial school, then two years of homeschool my son started at Bannon Creek last year in Mrs. Wells' 4th grade class. We could not have asked for a more wonderful teacher. She helped with his transition and was very communicative. This year my son is in Ms. Gerardo's 5th grade GATE class. She is wonderful as well. Excellent communication. It is clear she cares very much for the needs of her students. Ms. Wilkinson, the principal is the most involved principal I have ever met. I hear her greeting children by name as they get to school in the mornings. We're very pleased with the school.

My child is in the GATE program this year at Bannon Creek, having spent her first year in a 'regular' classroom. So far, having experienced both classroom settings, I am thoroughly unimpressed. There is very little parent involvement and we've had two years in a row of sub-par teaching. Going beyond the curiculum, at this age the teachers have a real opportunity to stand out as a good role model for the children - I haven't seen that so far. The only saving grace is the Principal, who is a lovely woman who genuinely cares for all the students. If they got rid of some of the tenured teachers who clearly don't like their job anymore and replaced them with people like Ms. Wilkinson, it would be a better school. This school has a long way to go. We're involved, but it feels like an uphill battle. It's mediocre at best.

My child went thru 3 years of the GATE program. It was very challenging for her and she excelled. Excellent teacher/parent communication when your child begins to struggle kept us apprised of any problems. The field trips are plentiful and out of the normal. Great Program for gifted children.

I am now looking into moving my child from bannon creek. there are too many students in the class and the teachers do not have time to help them all my child went from a A student and now having major issues. I had no idea she was having problems until I got her report card her teacher did not follow up with me as a parent. I have nothing good to sat about this school

I really am grateful for the fact that all three of my boys that attend this schhol are treated as an individual and not treated as one. I also enjoy the ladies in the front office are very friendly. The only thing I would like to change is the morning drop off situation. It is a mess espically for those parents who are trying to get to work. I appreciate the teachers standing out directing traffic and honestly I dont think there is anything you could about it that is just what comes when you have over 500 people going the same place at the same time...Thank you staff...

Great special ed program. We really miss it there. The teachers are very caring and accommodating to the student and family.

At Bannon Creek, each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name.

Parent Involvement? What is that? I would not send my children to this school. We have an intra-district pass to another school. The children are not pushed to learn basic reading and math skills. Those that need extra help are not given the opportunity. Teachers are in a rush to go home at the end of the day. MAJOR parking lot problems. Access to student pick up area is a nightmare and is an accident waiting to happen. There is no strong support to get this remedied. Just awful!

Bannon Creek is an excellent school, with a dedicated staff and strong academic programs. It is among the best schools in the district. One area of weakness is in parent involvement. While there is a small group of committed parents who make things happen, the vast majority of parents are not invovled in PTA or other aspects of school life.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 7, 2005

The school itself has a community fell to it. Parental involvment is good from the GATE program parents, but typically it is only a few parents doing it all. It would be nice if there was more parental involvement. PTA good really use some help. I have been very pleased with the self contained GATE classes in all areas I think the teachers are doing their best. I can not commment on other class rooms.

Bannon Creek is a very rigorous elementary school. The students are held to the highest academic standards I have ever seen. My children get way more homework than kids at any other school I know.

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.
