I stopped into this school to register and the office worker was really nice until I told her I was adopting my granddaughter. She then changed into almost pushing me out the door with paperwork. She suddenly didn't seem to want to answer any questions and I pretty much knew at that point I wouldn't even have a chance getting into this school of choice, not that I care to anymore.

Great school, great office staff, great teachers, great Principle. Everything about the school is great. My two kids were here, they would come out happy everyday and that made me content as a parent. Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Blount is someone you can count on blindly , God Bless her. The principle is never seen idling in, rather she peers around to make sure the yard is bully proof and takes personal care when dealing with parents and students. The office manager and staff head are so much ready to help all the time, ever so smiling. God Bless Sycamore Elementary School.. :-)

This is our second year at this school and I love it. I like it's size: not too big, not too small (approx. 430 students; with mostly 2 classes per grade), which lends itself to a good community feel. It seems that everyone likes being here and there is just a general positive feeling all around. Our principal is great - invested, caring, and leading. I appreciate the decent ethnic and socio-economic status diversity. The PTA is strong and welcoming, without any political or other drama you sometimes hear about in the PTA. The PTA really cares about bringing great stuff into the school for the kids, including fun monthly family night events. The kindergarten teachers are AMAZING!!! And first grade teachers are great too! (I have heard few to no complaints about the upper grade teachers, but I don't have much experience with them.) Sycamore is not our home school, and I chose it after researching and visiting other Simi schools...... and I'm so happy our "school of choice" has proved to be an excellent choice!!

Our daughter has been at this school for the last four years, and has truly enjoyed the experience of this small, close-knit school. The teachers are amazing and the PTA involvement and support is fantastic. We are very lucky to be part of this family.

Sycamore Elementary is a wonderful school. The smaller student body and layout of the campus is comfortable and welcoming. Parents are friendly and involved in the school. We've been here since 2004, and have benefitted greatly from the excellent teachers and supportive staff.

I choose to put my child in this school because of the rating and I made the biggest mistake. I did a lot of volunteering and noticed a lot of unfair treatment. I advise parents to ask their children how they are treated. There is way too much I have to say but instead of sharing my experience I would advise you to talk to your child. Especially when they have a school / class activity. If you can not volunteer please ask and believe your children on what they tell you.

We have been at this school since 2003. This is a great school and I'm very happy with the staff. The teachers truly care about the kids here and we are little family at Sycamore. That being said I must respond to the negative review below. In October 2010 there was no male 5th grade teacher on campus ( no male teachers at all) so that review is either a lie or a mistake.

My children have attended Sycamore for the past 6 years and I could not be happier. In 2009 we gained a terrific Principal with the vision and drive to make this school even better. There are many terrific teachers, an "all-knowing" office staff and involved parents. Sycamore has everything a parent should want in a school. As an added bonus: the PTA has a great group of Moms, who work hard to provide "extras" for the students.

Sycamore Elementary is an outstanding school. The teachers, Principal and PTA are all incredible and my kids enjoy going every day. I am so glad it is our home school and thank the teachers for all of their hard work.

not checking for students behind buildings or still out side of class room not enough supervisers on ground, i had walk to my car and i had my daughter outside of the class room standing and no one checked or her teacher didnt atemp to look and get her, if my daughter had left the grounds i would blamed the school and school district and i dont see this school is safe at all, dealing with young kids they need more rules and supervisers and wait 30min after bell has rang unless they want to deal with a missing kid and be the blame. thanks

I have been the Office Manager at Sycamore for the last 17 years. I am so very proud of our staff, our students, our parents, and our amazing PTA. They are an outstanding team and I enjoy working with them every day. As I register new students for the 2009-2010 school year I am excited to meet so many caring parents and enthusiastic 5 year olds just beginning their journey in education. Many of them chose Sycamore as their School of Choice which tells me they have heard good things about Sycamore. We are all so happy and eager to welcome them to our family of learners!

My child is in Kindergarten this year so we are new to the school and its teachers. I have been more than thrilled with her teacher and the staff. They are truely dedicated and wanting the best for the kids. I also became involved with the PTA. They are a wonderful group of women that work hard putting together great activities for the kids to enjoy and help in raising money for the school. Being new and not knowing what to expect in this first year of primary school, I am truely happy with our school of choice and my daughter is enjoying going to school every day.

My daughter attends this school and we love it. The teachers are mostly terrific. The office staff is pleasant. The Principal is nice and very visable on campus. I am in the PTA and the Moms truly care about this school and it shows in everything they do. It is not clicky. The Harvest carnival is fantastic. My daughter has exceeded my expectations and I feel it is due to wonderful/caring teachers. I love the small feeling of this school and I feel blessed that my daughter attends here.

I love how my daughters teachers push her to excell the best she can. When they notice that she needs extra help in something they find a solution and let me know as soon as possible. They do get opportunities to participate in art and sports, but not as much as I would like them too. Parents are encouraged to participate but at the teachers discretion.

I had high hopes coming to this school. The principle is the not suited for this age group. On any given day will stand by any parent student or tacher. You just don't know which on and on which day. This makes it hard to approach her.

Posted November 8, 2004

Wonderful school with great teachers. Have heard that the principal will stand by teachers before students, meaning..if you have a problem with a teacher dont expect to much to be done by the principal.

I am the parent of a 1st grade student and I am happy with Sycamore. The teachers she has had so far have encouraged my daughter to reach her full potentional. They are caring and always have time to talk to me and answer any questions I may have. There could be more parental involvement, but the PTA is setting up some great assemblys for the kids, and family nights.

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.
