I will be pulling my son from this school. He will not attend next year.
Walnut Canyon is a good school with very good teachers and a comprehensive expansive approach to educating children that is a breath of fresh air compared to Fundamental schools and No Child Left Behind based learning. However, the school funding cuts of recent years combined with increasing class size has really impacted the activities and extras in the curriculum that once made it really great. Also, when considering Walnut Canyon and maybe other Moorpark schools know that favoritism is very openly and apologetically practiced by the teachers there.
Just like every other public school around - the ratio of students to teachers in too high and unless your child fits the public education mold, he/she gets left in the dust. The principal is very fake. Smiles all the time in your face but is totally different behind the scenes. She gives preferential treatment to the families she likes, i.e. the teachers they request. Last, don't feel this new core curriculum will be the best fit for every child.
My son loves being a student at Walnut Canyon. The new principal is a breath of fresh air and his teacher Mrs. Walters is big on teaching with all the latest technology! I couldn't be more excited about this school year!!! IF I had any complaint it would be that there isn't as much performing arts as I would like to see but I do realize w/ budget cuts they are doing the best with what they've got! The parents at this school are the most supportive of any school I've seen, very involved! You also wont find a harder working PTA around! Great Job Walnut Canyon!
