If you want your Child to be bullied all School year long getting bad grades because of that (because your Child is depressed for being bullied) then this School is for you. Teachers and Principal are aware of bullies but don't do anything. Do your Child a favor and stay away from this School District.

East Canyon Elementary School claims they have a "No Bully Policy" but they don't My Son is in 5th Grade and gets Bullied every single day by several Classmates. They always single him out. They call him racist names, make his School supply disappear, spreading rumors about him. Even Teachers don't help him, they call my Son a Liar. The Principal is probably trying to do things but it is all the time something that upset my Son. We are telling him to stand up for him self to ignore all those mean bullies and focus on his Grades and soon this terrible School year will be over and nothing else matters. But it is said easier than done. I want my Son to enjoy School but he is now starting to hate School. If this School does not actively fight Bullies in this early stage of Education then it will get worse later on. Punish the Bullies suspend them from School and make the Victims feel protected. It is the Schools responsibility to make sure our Children are safe and sound but I do not see it happening. My Sons friend was being pulled out of School by his Mother because he was the victim of a Bully. I am sure glad we are moving away from this School district soon

This is a terrible School.... We NEVER had any issues with my Son's previous School out of State. My Son is being Bullied since School started. I talked to the Teachers and Principal. Nothing is done by them, I have been to this School several times to work with the Teachers and Principal they assured me they will take of it but yet nothing happened. This School needs to actively Work against Bullies and not just have flyers hanging around. Action shows more than words. I will consider to put my Children into a better School.

I have never had any major issues with this school and the staff there. I have found them to be efficient, caring, and on the ball when it comes to helping students in areas they struggle in. There is a new principal this year and although I've never had reason to call her due to any issues in school, she is very visible and present. My students have thrived both socially and academically at this school. This school allows parents to come in and observe their students in their classes if there is any concerns. Teachers are more than willing to call or arrange a time to conference with parents regarding concerns with students. Before rushing to judgement about this school I urge parents to visit and see for themselves the dedication of the teachers and other staff. I will say that the lack of parental involvement is one of the negatives of this school but that is not a direct reflection of the school but rather the parents and their unwillingness to participate. I believe this school would be even more amazing if more parents rolled up their sleeves and got involved!

I am not impressed with this school. My son went to Birch Elementary and it was amazing. Zoning is too strict now and they could not accept him this year and we are forced to enroll him here. I tried charter schools and called the district, but we are stuck. Even though he has never met the man listed on his birth certificate, they said TOO BAD. No matter my wished or the fact my son does not know him at all, this STRANGER would be allowed to pick up my son from school. I have since enrolled him in K12 Virtual Academy. I ask any parents who wants their children to be safe to consider doing the same. This is a horrible school, I have heard multiple people talk of bullies, and it is not a safe environment for my son to be in where they would ALLOW a stranger to take him from school.

There are a couple great teachers but sadly they are all moved into the higher grades. If you ask around the community you will see that the old reviews are not current. Between constant bullying in which the bullies are protected and the fact that many of the teachers ignore student and parent concerns, I'd rather pay for a private school than allow any other child t be back in this school.

My daughter attended grade 1 and I found the teachers there to be efficient, hard working, and adaptable. The three grade one teachers pooled their classes one hour each day to provide extra attention to students requiring more one-on-one interaction, those working at grade level, and those who excelled and needed more challenges. This school needs improvements but was trying hard to improve while my daughter attended.

I've had two children in this school for the past 5 years and only been pleased with three teachers. The principal is not approachable at all and is not kid friendly.

I have no complaints about this school so far. My daughter's reading and math skills have improved tremendously. The staff there is courteous and helpful.

The bullying in this school by many students is often. Just walk down the halls and see all the art on the walls concerning 'No Bullying.' This school is not where I want my children to be!

I went to East canyon as a child and back then it was great. I learned alot and had fun doing it. Now for my children, this school has plumited. There are very few special programs for children with leraning dissabilities (my son has ADD) and just as few for accelerated children (my daughter). I asked teachers to e-mail me with a weekly report and some did for the first few weeks and then is faded as the school year progressed. Two years ago a letter was sent out to the parents of all the students saying if you wished to transfer you children to the closest school in your district they would still bus the children home. This letter was sent out due to the fact that overall state anf federal test scores were extremely low and it was manditory for the school to offer an alternative for parents.

My first experience was at registation, when the office staff made me feel right at home. They were organized, friendly, helpful and overall made me feel welcome. Then there is the teachers also very friendly and helpful, and I have never walk into the school not seeing a smile on any teacher face. My son love it there and he is doing excellent in his reading. I love the different programs of reading that teaches at different level depending on each childs needs. I would recommend East Canyon or any of the Vallivue schools, they are GREAT !
