Thank you principal Jennifer Duston for having a vision for our school and bringing so many exciting, innovative ideas and amazing staff members to carry out that vision. It's so cool watching my kids work with the latest technology and grow their leadership skills! Keep it coming!

Peggy in the office is always so helpful all the time! I don't think parents realize how much she does for our school. As a parent, I want to say, "thank you for loving your job and always giving 110%"!

We just started our second year at ATLAS and we love it! Let's put it this way; we moved last April and our new boundary school was Citrus Glen (also a highly rated school). During the summer my daughter begged to stay at ATLAS to begin 1st grade there. We were able to transfer to remain there, and my daughter's kinder teacher from last year was able to make sure her little brother started this year in her classroom! Mrs. Wipf is an oustanding teacher, and we love 1st grade's Mrs. Smith. The school has many fundraisers, events and the curriculum is outstanding. My children are constantly bringing up something new they learned each week. Historically it's been a good school but declined over the years. However, they did a complete overhaul a few years ago; new principal, and ATLAS is now one of Ventura's 6 magnet schools. They run on the philosophy of "The 7 Habits" (of highly effective people) a book series that is great! The leadership and technology aspects are fantastic, but it's also about helping these kids become good future citizens.

Saticoy Elementary School has been always loved by the community. Dedicated teachers, involved parents, cooperative staff, and a very active PTA are some of the few to mention. The young, energetic Principal who is a technology pro, knows how to make things work and attain the resources for the kids. With the new name change of the school, ATLAS Elementary (Academy of Technology and Leadership at Saticoy), the school focuses on technology and emphasizing the leadership skills in the students. After school programs, programs for GATE kids, spirit week and other PTA driven program are keeping the kids driven and parents involved. I am so proud to be a part of ATLAS/ or a more familiar Saticoy Elementary School. Both of my kids are having such a good learning experience and I am happy to see them grow as better individuals in a very safe, academic environment where 'Great Happens' almost every day!

My child transferred here from Mound and we have been very happy and satisfied with the personal connection between them and their teachers, with the amount of activities for parents to get involved with at the school after school hours, and the use of technology. My child loves it and I am so glad we made the choice to come here!

I love Saticoy school. I don't know why it is rated so low, this is NOT the case. My child had a great experience in Kindergarten and we absolutly love her first grade teacher Mr. Palkie. They really take an interest in the students and I love the access to iPads,nooks and technology in the classroom. A+

Saticoy has been a blessing. Last year my daughter whined every morning that she had to go to school. I moved her to Saticoy and she jumps out of bed every morning. She adores her teacher, loves the learning environment and is being taught more than just academics. The principal is young, energetic and enthusiastic. She is starting great new programmes for the kids and is moving with the times. The staff is receptive, involved and willing to do anything for the kids.

I love this school! The principal and staff are wonderful and really care. My daughter is a GATE student and continues to do extremely well at Saticoy with CAT6 scores all in the 95-88th percentile. Don't second guess this school or waste your time driving all over town. Support your community school. You get what you give. Saticoy is a fabulous school! Love it!

After four years I can only say that Mrs. Smith is an exceptional teacher. I have not been impressed with the other. My child has often been left to fend for himself so that they can 'catch up the students that are behind', meanwhile my gifted child is closing in on grade level.

I have had 2 children in this school and am sorry that I did. My kids scores and abilities declined after a couple of years there. Newer principal needs to be more involved in making sure his teachers follow guidelines, such as showing up on time and teaching core subjects. The Ventura school district is weak.

My experience with this schools has been nothing but a big headache. The curriculum needs improvement and the standards of the school tends to cater to the academically challenged and work its way up to the even more academically challenged. This school may portray the image of helping its students but helping them amount to what, being five years behind the rest of the world. The only reason why my child stayed in this school was because I was given wrong information from the School Board stating that I must stay within my district. Happy to say that I will enjoy commuting my child to the next district over.

I was very satisfied with the school last year. Mrs Smith and Mrs. Huff were wonderful. This year, I have not had the invovment from the teachers. Specifically, my 1st grader, who is very independent(obstinent), I have heard only negative feedback in the form of notes home, no actual contact, and no positive feedback at all. This kid is above ave. intelligence, and because she doesn't like to listen, she is being pushed away. Mrs Smith took the time to get on her level, and was ultimately successful. Her current teacher has made no effort other than to place check marks on a pre-filled form, with no comments even added.

Teachers and administration are terrific. Helpful, diligent, safety conscious, concerned and active participants in my child's academic progress. They take pride in the students progress and stay in touch with the parents to make sure students are not left behind.
