Deer Canyon Elementary School Reviews
My son and daughter both attend this school and I am very pleased with the personal attention they receive for their individual educational growth.
Although, I found the principal to be interested in wanting to help with my situation, I, too, did not see it in the teachers. The teachers I have dealt with are young and seem more interested in their social life than that of their classroom.
After my childs second year at this school I've seen enough that needs improvement which is why I rated all areas as poor. I like the enthusiasm I see from the principal, however I'm not so impressed with the two teachers we've had thus far.
I've seen very young children ( 5 years old) wandering around campus not knowing where to go. This is just absolutely unacceptable. I also told a teacher I was available to help in the classroom, but she seemed to not want parent involvement which I found very disappointing and strange. I find this school mediocre with much need for some creativity and challenging curriculum for our kids.
