BRING BACK Simi Elementary very SAD to see it Closed,,, This was a Great School until this year it was shut down. Shame on the Simi Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) for moving our kids out in the middle of the school year, sending them to another campus so you can make this your new FUTURE HEADQUARTERS... I attended this school 25 years ago and my child was a student untill this BULLSH!T

My parents moved me here for the "G.A.T.E." program. They thought I would be challenged at this school. I definitely wasn't. Mostly I spent the time I had after I finished my work helping other students do their work. Then I got extra homework to "challenge" me. My siblings moved along with me. My youngest sibling was in kindergarten and came home that first week of school terrified to use the bathroom because of "ghosts". I guess it is a joke at this school that it is haunted. Not a joke to my sibling who started having nightmares and wetting the bed at night. The teachers think its no big deal and I have even heard them joke about ghosts in the cafeteria. If you ask me, I was the ghost at this school. No matter how hard I worked it didn't matter. It's a small school, the teachers already have their favorites picked out and I wasn't one of them. I went an entire year here and didn't receive 1 compliment or encouraging word. Not 1. I thought of acting out so I could get special treatment like some of the others. My mom explained why I shouldn't do that and told me I learned a valuable lesson here. To believe in myself even when teachers don't. We moved. I am no longer a ghost :]

I give Simi Elementary 1 star because it is a school, and the grounds are pretty. Other than that this school is lacking in all other areas especially leadership. I sent my child to this school as a kindergartener, eager to learn and happy to wake up in the morning and go to school. Over the years I have watched as my child's interest and love for school fizzle out. We haven't been happy for a while with the way issues were dealt with but it really got worse last year. Everyday my child would come home from school unhappy. Finally we could stand no more and decided to move to a different elementary school. It wasn't until we switched schools this year that I noticed the huge difference. I never expected my child's love of school and learning to return so fast!! Only a month into school and our life has dramatically changed for the better. Interestingly enough we weren't the only ones to leave. Many of her friends left and are at different schools this year too. Enrollment has dropped significantly at Simi Elementary and it's no wonder why. This school did not meet my child's needs. Our family was swept under the rug at Simi Elementary. We are so happy we left this school.

Simi Elementary meets the needs of each child. This small school is a community center for all. The outstanding staff, involved parents and top notch students make it a great place to learn. Congratulations to all for a job well done on 2013 API!

This school has renewed my kid's drive to succeed and become an honor roll student. Simi El represents what teachers, staff and parents do together. They try very hard and the kids happy attitudes prove it.

From what I have observed over the past 4 years, moral has droped. The kids are suffering, the teachers are burned out. My child was said to be at a 2.1 grade level reader. He was re-evaluated by a different teacher, at a different school and we found he was at a 5th grade level. His self esteem was low, and there was nothing really done to bring it up. I must say, I am worried about my child returning to this school. We are suppose to have a new Principal, yet we still have to contend with the same people at the district level. Maybe some fresh blood to oversee the elementary schools would help.

We did not have a positive experience with this school. The principal was very nice but promised many things that just never happened. The GATE program was nothing more than a few games available for students if they had free time. My child teacher was not interested and actually seemed very annoyed when a parent asked to help in the class room. They have the deaf program which I thought would be a great opportunity for diversity but there is very little interaction between the deaf and hearing students. My child was taught a few signs the first week of school and nothing after that. Overall a very dissapointing experience.

I like the diverse group of kids we have at our school. We are blessed to have some of Deaf children at our school, it has been a great experience for all of the kids. The children love the old school There are many caring teachers as well. However, in regard to administration there are some concerns. It seems difficult to resolve problems with the principal, he is not one to take the bull by the horns, he would rather sweep it under the carpet.

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.

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.

  • The small student population (325)contributes to a “family-type atmosphere” as we focus on building knowledge, responsibility, self-esteem and community. The curriculum is enhanced through weekly visits to the library, our new state-of –the art Lenovo Computer Lab, and numerous enrichment assemblies provided by the PTA. Student Council and Drama Club provide important extra-curricular activities. Home-school communication is ongoing through a weekly UPDATE and the PTA newsletter. Community involvement is evident through the business partnership and classroom service projects. The responsibility for education is shared among students, staff, parents and community. Together we make Simi Elementary School an exciting place to learn!
