This school is the Best because it has all the needs that a student needs to h ve. We have iPads , chrome books, computers, and more. The teachers are super helpful and respectful to all students. Kids will change their grades up to an A before you know it. People sometimes make up stuff so that they can make us look bad, but if you want to see for yourself then come to scammon school and start education here. I am a student from scammon elementary and I learned a lot. I even learned English at this school. I became everyone's friend and a kind and also responsible girl. Scammon is a school that teacher you how to be respectful, responsible, and ready to succeed in school and in life.

Seriously? These reviews were all posted within the few days. Also, they have a major marketing campaign going on there -- sending flyers and what not throughout the neighborhood. These new reviews seem like marketing also. Yes, they do have lots of technology but putting kids on an iPad to keep them quite isn't the same as teaching them something.

My school is amazing! The technology is out of this world! Each grade has iPads and the 7th and 8th graders all have chrome books. They have what they call a blended learning system. The kids use apps for individual instruction. Even the art and music teachers use technology. There is no school in the neighborhood like it!

Trust this days is the most important factor at any school specially to the principal and the staff of the institution, and the best indicator of that are the results of every school individually. Scammon Elementary School is identified by the community as one of the best save places for our kids and the interaction parents-school is an example how leadership should be managed. I am a pruod father of a Scammon student. . .

My grand children attend Scammon, after looking at the Charter schools we chose Scammon. They have computers and technology like no other school around. They have ipads and they use chrome books ! I even saw the music teachers and art teachers using computers in their classes .The teachers are knowledgeable and friendly. I know we made the right choice!

I have being in other schools and the participation of the parents is limited because the principals, but in this school I really appreciate the openness of the principal and the teachers to let parents give ideas and participate freely with the projects and development of our child education. Definitely I recommend to any body bring their kids to this school

Tengo dos estudinates en esta escuela uno en sexto grado y otro en pre-kinder. Los maestros son muy amables estan dispuestos a hacer tiempo para comunicarse con los padres. La directora Mrs. Weaver es muy responsable y dedicada a su trabajo. Esta siempre informada y hasta trata de comunicarse en espanol con los padres que no hablan ingles. Scammon para mi es la mejor escuela y la mas avansada porque tienen iPads para quinto y sexto grado. Graias maestros y a todos el personal por vindar una educacion de 5 estrellas a mis hijos!!!

Greatest school in the area. My youngest daughter graduated from Scammon and has excelled in her career in Criminal Justice. Besides I have worked here for 15 years and have had a wonderful environment to work with. Great, hard working principal and staff. They go above and beyond to help students. It's all about the children here at Scammon.

My school is filled with fantastic teachers that care about students. They go the extra miles by attending professional development during the summer and throughout the school year.

My child is involved at Scammon School and has always been shy and timid. She is in the school chorus and in the Student Council. Thanks to all the teachers who have encouraged her. Her grades have always been excellent. That was not the problem. Socially she is now blossoming into a great young lady. Thanks to all the teachers and administration that cares.

Scammon School is AMAZING! My kids were so excited to go back to school. On the first day all of the teachers were out on the playground in the morning greeting the students. It feels like a family, and they take good care of my kids like their own. They have art and music and gym and computers. My kids dont want to miss school

This is a great school! My kids are actually excited to go back to school! My sixth grader last year was making global connections across his subjects, including art and music. My son got to use an iPad in class daily for multiple subjects, including art. The teachers and principal are very caring and respectful to the students and parents. There are great activities to get the parents involved too!

Wouldn't recommend this school some teachers are great don't get me wrong but the principal is very rude she is so use to yelling at the students she thinks she can yell at parents as well. My sons first year at school and they can't even handle him. So much bad experience in this school it even got to the point were the principal Weiver denied my child some of his lunch stating to him and I quote "they ran out of chips" for the chillie he was eating what school runs out of food. In my eyes Weiver discriminated my child because of behavior problems.... Whatever happend to working together for the best of my child????

I have been going to this school since kindergarten and the only bad thing I've seen from teachers I've had is an 8th Grade teacher that is now mine.She doesn't explain the material right and just yells at us.If we ask her for help she does the work without explaining it and than tells us she doesn't understand why we don't understand this and that it's 6th or 7th grade work that we didn't even learn the years before.Only person that helps us is the assistant in the back of the class helping others but she barely has time for us and goes with kids that really struggle.I and others have barely learned anything from her and we've had enough.Many students have tried to fire her but were unsuccessful. She is the only thing standing besides us and a good education.

How do you rate a school so high when its overall rating is 3 out of 10? Are you aware of how funds are being used for all expense paid travel for teachers and Principal to Las Vegas? You obviously are not looking at the total picture of the school. You've been duped, bamboozled and you don't even know it. Wake up and smell the coffee. You have to pay attention to what is happening in the overall school. It's not just about your children, but all children. Do something now!

I think that the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Lukic is one of the best administrators I've every meet. She cares about the students, works hard to keep them safe and is very professional when she talks to parents. She helps teachers to be the best they can be. She's a role model for all at that school.

My children are 10,9,6 and my older two have each been enrolled since kindergarten. I feel that every year they have grown with each year. I love the attention each one of my children are receiving even though there are many others my kids excel and I feel are being taught at a high standard that they might not recieve at another facility it is a safe and warm enviroment, it kind of leaves you knowing there safe and almost at home

The school needs much improvement with their specialized program. The needs of their students with special needs are not being meet in a timely nor appropriate manner. The staff needs to learn how to deal with the students in a way that they do not feel intimidated or less then others.
