Santa Clarita Elementary is a great school! After having three children graduate from this school, our last child is completing her final years here. Currently, we live right around the corner from the school that our child should be attending in our district, but we choose to keep our child at SCE. The staff is great. Our new principal, Mr. Korie, is bringing new life and new programs to our school. Students are known as "scholars", giving them the sense that they are truly a scholar of learning. Parents consistently volunteer, taking tasks off of teachers plates, to allow teachers to teach. The parent group here is amazing: always working to raise funds so that the students still enjoy the fun side of education: field trips, assemblies and activities that enhance their elementary school experience. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

Love this school!!! The staff is amazing. Our new principal, Mr. Korie is wonderful. The school has a great sense of community. Parents and staff work together to make this school awesome. This school offers so many great programs, gardening with Mr. Maxwell, Jog a thon, Wonder Wednesday's etc....we couldn't be happier. My child loves her school and cannot wait to go everyday. Bulldog Pride!!!

I am so grateful for the teachers at this school! They work so hard putting in extra hours and are very dedicated making sure each student has the best learning experience. I love that we are a smaller school where everyone k ow everyone and is willing to help out at any time. Great group of parents who are willing to put their time in to help make this an awesome school!

I must tell you that despite a few unhappy reviews this is a GREAt school. GREAT teachers and a Principal that TRIES very hard to balance teachers, parents and the students. Santa Clarita Elementary is ALL about the kids-it ALWAYS has been in the 5 years I have been there. They ARE very much into science, technology and the environment. Thew handful of parents that actually volunteer all the time are always pleasant and welcoming and answer all my questions and concerns when needed. Yes true the ENTIRE district is lacking in funds but this school is good about doing awesome fundraisers so that the students can experience assemblies and field trips that they may not be able to otherwise. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone moving into this area or looking to have their child taught by a professional, loving, motivated and experienced group of teachers!

Terrible school. The principal (Saunders) is awful and does not care about the children. Extremely unprofessional. She could care less about parental input or concerns. A school will never be good with bad leadership and administration. It has a few great teachers and a lot bad ones that need to retire or leave the teaching profession all together. Teachers with big egos that want to flaunt their credentials yet can't reach children academically. Huge lack of quality supervision for the children while outdoors at play. Do your child a favor, don't send them to this school.

Outstanding principal and teachers who are passionate about educating children. Smaller school size gives a more private school feeling. Beautiful campus with enthusiastic and caring administration.

I have loved this school...past tense. Granted some of my major gripes are things they cannot do much about. The location is absolutely terrible. It could use a much larger MPR. The large class sizes (entire district) are too much for many children. Some are getting left behind. There are many wonderful and loving teachers there, but not one male teacher or administrator. My child is constantly picked on by other children. More supervision would be ideal, but it takes $. One day my child came home in wet pants because the yard duty wouldn't allow bathroom use at lunch time. That was unacceptable. They would like to be know as THE science school in the district, but as much as they try, it's still just not enough. One week of science is not enough to make up for an entire year with little to none. Still, it has a beautiful campus and many loving teachers and staff. It could be great again, but they need $$$$$. Unfortunately nothing will fix the problem with the location short of someone being seriously injured or worse from the many crazy distracted drivers who do everything but follow the rules.

Both my children are enrolled at Santa Clarita and love the teachers and staff they are friendly and caring. The school is one of the oldest and smallest in the area. The teachers truly care about the kids education. I have to say Mrs Fannon and Mrs Ramsey both have been wonderful teachers to my kids. They were previuosly enrolled at Helmers and the staff there were rude and felt at times they were discriminating and have favoritism aging other children.

This school is small and old with mostly very, very good teachers. Most of the teachers are dedicated and hard working and excellent role models to the students. Parents and school administration have a tight knit relationship. The school maintence needs extra work though as age is showing in the entire school and it's surroundings.

This is an outstanding school! The teachers are beyond wonderful, and they are completely dedicated to their craft of educating our child. As partners in the education of our child, we acknowledge the fact that we are the primary agents of instruction. Nevertheless, the teachers at Santa Clarita always go above and beyond to ensure that he receives an exemplary education in a nurturing and supportive milieu. Thanks, Santa Clarita... you have made a tremendously positive impact in the life of our little boy!

Santa Clarita Elementary School is a wonderful school with equally wonderful and extremely dedicated teachers and a very caring administration. Even when faced with situations that are not always positive, the principal always maintains the most professional and graceful attitude. The students and parents should both feel extremely privileged to be a part of such an exceptional learning environment.

Upon much research based on statistics, we chose to move to this area mainly due to community and schools. We found the leadership at the school, the administration and the attitude to be less than rewarding for our children. The Principal 'caved' to what parents wanted instead of what was best for the kids. We have a gifted child whom the teacher did not think it was important to challenge him outside of what the class was doing although we were assured the GATE program was in place. If a child is learning disabled they have every opportunity with many $$$ to back them. It is not a child's fault if they are born one way or another and should be taught accordingly. We are glad to have moved from this facad of a school.
