Sycamore Canyon is a fantastic school. The administration as well as the dedicated and caring teachers make this school exceptional. I feel we have been privileged to have our grandchildren (as well as my children before them) attend Sycamore Canyon.
Too many combo classes. Grades 4-6 are all combo classes. Combination classes compromise a child's education.
We moved to Santee from Arizona last year shortly after school had started. We are very pleased with our experience at Sycamore Canyon. The teachers and staff are so great. Both of our children flourished, socially and academically. Looking forward to another great school year ahead!
Mrs Schwartz is wonderful! My daughter really enjoys her class and all the activities. The staff is all super friendly! Awesome school!!
Up until this year, my son has had a great experience. However, in 6th grade he has encountered a teacher that both embarasses and degrades him. I have concurred with other parents in the classroom and this "tough love" teacher just crosses the line.
I love this school, my son he in pre-school with teacher Ann Olson and she did an amazing job!!! Teachers and staffs are so good and so kind too.
We had our 3-year old in the YALE program. The staff are very caring, friendly, and most important, good at teaching. Kudos to them.
Great after school programs. OnStage InSchool, Garden Club, Clay Club and Reflections Art Program.
I have always been impressed with the amount of parent involvement at this school. The teaching staff is excellent.
Sycamore Canyon is by far the best school in the Santee district for Kindergarden through sixth grade. Both my daughters are doing wonderful and we never have to worry about them getting 'lost in an overcrowded K-8 school. Sycamore teachers are fabulous and many of the teachers that have tenure prefer to stay at Sycamore rather than transfer to other campuses. They stay at Sycamore because of the learning environment and parental involvement. Sycamore has the highest parent PTA membership per student in the district. I would highly recommend Sycamore, not only for K-6, but also for the EAK program and after school activities (clay club, art club etc;).
