Love this school! I have two children attending Big Springs. The teachers and staff are amazing. There is so much parent involvement and this makes the school a better place for our children. The PTA offers so many extra programs to make this school even more special.

We also moved to Simi from porter ranch Where my Kids attend a High Achieving school at first it was a shocker due to the low Parent involvement (financial). We came from a school that raised a lot of money for the kids, at Big Springs you don't have that. The staff does a great job with what they have and Miss Radloff is a no non sence person she runs a great ship. All my kids did great there and I still have one there.

I really love this school. I debated on sending my children to private school, but I had heard such great things about Big Springs, I thought we'd try it first. All of my kids are currently attending school here or will be soon. I have been extremely pleased with the staff and all of the teachers they have had through the years. The PTA and most of the parents are committed to donating their support (in too many ways to count) to the school. I feel that we made the right choice for our children's education.

We love Big Springs Elem. school. The teachers are wonderful and the principal is so involved and caring. The parent involvement is first class. The PTA is very strong and does a lot for the school. I wish they had a full day Kindergarten program and more programs afterschool, however.

SImi Valley schools are known for their academic performance and Big Springs is no exception. Big Springs is listed as a 10 out of 10 in the state API index. The teachers are great and when it comes to parent involvement, there is never an empty seat, from PTA meetings, field trips to the special events held almopst weekly. I am certain you couldn't get a better education at a private school. No disapointments here, whatsoever.

Big springs elementry school was a very big dispointment. My experience with the principal as well as the teachers was horrifying. The pricipal was extremely unprofessional in both her attitude and appearance. I was unhappy with their attitudes, and their inability to recognise a parent for their efforts and what they are trying to accomplish as a team for the sake of the childs education. I felt judged, ridiculed, and demoralized, and labeled as person based on the principles veiws of what she feels are proper morals and values. Due to a divorce and having to relocate my child had excessive absences, and staff repremanded her in such a manner that she started to show low self esteem and low self worth. Adapting to new surroundings, new school, and new city was hard enough on my child. I was extremly dissatisfied with the principal and staff!

Thank You for allowing me to student teach at your wonderful school. Mrs. Dianne Brunner was the best mentor I could have had, and Mrs. Radloff was helpful and kind. The children were good students and quick to learn. Again, thank you for this opportunity.

I have been extremely impressed by the level of participation given by the teachers. The don't hesitate to give extra time to benefit the students. This school boasts a music program with an extracurricular student choir and bell orchestra. They often have student drama productions. The classrooms are dynamic. The student's manners and discipline upon the school grounds are incredible. The school facilities, while aging, are impeccably clean and well cared for daily. The teachers are obviously well supported by their administration and is shows in their creativity and their students.
