I pulled my daughter out of the local charter school and put her at Sage Canyon. She was doing well at the charter but has blossomed at Sage. Her learning has gone thru the roof! She loves her class, teacher and going to school. I love the principal - she's a woman of integrity and humility and loves the kids and parents. She is not focused on mandatory testing and the standardized tests so you don't have to worry about teachers teaching to the test. I cant say enough about this school.

We have been here over a month but we are really very happy here! The staff and even the other parents have been very friendly and welcoming, and the teachers in particular are so warm and caring toward the kids. I don't love company that they selected to run the after-school program so we may switch out if they don't get a bit better organized and engaged.My kids are absolutely thriving here! I really like the methods of communication (ie, apps and software. I can look online to see what kind of day my children are having), and the way that they challenge the kids to be engaged and learn about the class subjects.

I could not be happier with our experience at Sage Canyon. My kids, 1st, 3rd, and 5th are happy, learning so much and love school. I read the post below and am surprised that someone mentions extremely poor leadership but excellent teachers and staff. I have found all of the adults, from leadership to office staff to teachers and aides to be kind and receptive. The principal puts out blog posts to parents and she and the assistant principal greet students in the lobby and wave goodbye to students at dismissal everyday. This is an excellent school.

I can't express how happy I am with Sage Canyon and how well my son has done there. I am a young parent, who had a bad experience in school and I am skeptical about our public schools system. Honestly, my opinion has changed since my son has been at Sage Canyon. He is excited almost every day to go to school. He talks about what he does in class and he has a lot of friends. I think this is because the teachers and administration builds such a nice environment for kids. My sons teacher is responsive and explains any problems that my son has. My son was having trouble with his reading and his teacher has worked really hard to help him improve. I have only met the principal and assistant principal a few times, but I think they are great too and they know my son by name. I am really happy that my son goes here and I would recommend it to anyone.

We love Sage Canyon! We are moving out of state and are so nervous about finding a new school that will compare to Sage Canyon. While the first year was somewhat unorganized, it was the first year of a new school, so that's to be expected. I was part of the PTO and loved working with the staff and the parents! We will miss the Sage Canyon family!!

First to the person who went to 2 PTO meetings and did not have a good experience... I am very sorry that you felt that way. I am on the board and this was my first year being on a board of a PTO and we are new getting to know each other. We had lots of challanges this year and hope going forward we are growing and learning. I hope you will give us another chance and get involoved we always need help from parents. Sage Canyon met all of my expectations! My daughter had a great year and loved Miss Pepper... We look forward to another great year . Being a new school is tough and I thought everyone did a fantastic job... llooking forward to another great year this year.

I think the school is just fine. I have no issues with PTO, Principles, Teachers. I have had nothing but good experience with all. My daughter is doing well in class and she has an amazing teacher. You should have seen the school I went to at this age. My kids are very lucky to be going here.

We are very happy here! We came fro Timber trail and were worried about this new school measuring up since we liked timber trail. We like Sage Canyon even more and feel like the kids are getting a more balanced education.

Wow! It's clear by reading the reviews that there are mixed feelings regarding Sage Canyon. There are two sides to every story. I have attended two PTO meetings and the welcome was not very friendly. Your either a part of the "group" or not. Not one person introduced themselves to me and I had no idea who was who on the board. Makes me not want to get involved. Office staff is very friendly, my kids teachers are great. I have had more interaction with the Vice Principal than the principal and she is wonderful. My biggest complaint is not having enough notice regarding the school activities. As a busy working mom I need as much notice as possible.

We have been very pleased with this school as well! My girls love it! The teachers that we have met are all wonderful as is the staff. The principal of this school is excellent. She has been very responsive to any of our thoughts or concerns and even has answered my daughters emails - before school had even started. The PTO has been wonderful! From what I have seen everyone involved has worked extremely hard from the beginning to have great events for all in the school. I too was surprised to see the negative reviews here. Everyone I have spoken with LOVE the school! It's been a great place for my girls!

I have been very pleased with Sage Canyon. My boys are both thriving in this school. The have teachers that take a true interest in their education and work very hard to create a great learning environment. The entire staff is friendly and you can tell they truly enjoy being with the kids. I feel welcomed anytime I walk into the school. The administration and office staff greet my children and myself by name and always respond to any questions that I may have with a genuine interest. My kids enjoy school and I know that they are safe and well taken care of every day.

The unsatisfactory reviews on this website really surprised me. My family has been extremely pleased at Sage Canyon Elementary. We have found the principal to be very prompt and responsive. The teachers my girls have are excellent! Although I don't have time to be on the PTO, the events that we have attended this year have been GREAT! My girls come home and tell me how much they love school. It doesn't get better than Sage Canyon. We love it!

My family moved recently from out of state. We have a second, fourth and fifth grader this year at Sage Canyon. Sage Canyon is a beautiful new school and the teachers are excellent! Our kids come home with creative projects and really like their teachers. Coming from another state, I am very impressed with the sense of safety and security that I feel at Sage Canyon. I know my kids are safe and in good hands! I suppose that if you don't have a computer, you may not get information, but I have found the school website to be easy to locate the information that I need. I have not experienced any of the issues mentioned below.

We have been incredibly unhappy with this school and their leadership from the get go. Next year we will be sending our child to a private school. The principal in unresponsive to all issues and the teachers aren't teaching what they are supposed to. The principal has no idea what is going on within the classrooms and the PTO is a joke.

I have lived in six states and my kids have been at numerous schools over the last seven years! I think anyone would be lucky to have their children attend Sage Canyon! Both my kids' teachers are very hard-working and set achievable expectations for them. They are very hands on and I have seen such growth in them this past year. The principal has been very receptive any time I have contacted her with concerns. The staff went through a rigorous application process. This is a new school as of 2011 and please allow for some growing pains with an initial school snow dismissal and brand new PTO. I am not part of either. I have friends still at other local elementary schools who are trying to get in to Sage Canyon through open enrollment but have been unable. It is a highly sought after school for very good reason!

The main problem with this beautiful new school is the organization and communication. Parents get conflicting information from the principal and the teachers. I never know what is going on. Snow day dismissal was a disaster, parents could not find their kids. We were told they were allowed to walk home, when getting home my kids were not there. Went back to the school only to find out the kids were told they could not leave the building. Who schedules parent teacher conferences, CSAP, and a book fair all during the same week? Sage Canyon! That's who. Safety is a major factor. Crossing guard schedule is not consistant. No sign in security measures. PTO communication is lacking and is disorganized as well. This school has major potential however needs major reorganization. But my teachers are AWESOME!!!
