My family has had a great experience at Arroyo. I chose this school for several reasons. I was moving my children from a language immersion program in another city and wanted them to be close to our home, but still exposed to other languages. It has not disappointed me. My children are exposed to 4 different languages throughout the year in class and at the after school clubs that are provided. It is a small school and my children do not get lost in the crowd and are well supported by teachers and staff. Staff are quick to provide extra support when needed, whether it is academic or emotional.
I enrolled my child at this school from another school in Simi Valley which was more focused on test results and was high-pressure. Arroyo has been a great school with a lot individual help and attention to my child. I was wary only because of ratings but a lot of information in statistics can be incorrect. My child has been excelling and finding a lot of confidence in himself with great teachers and wonderful leadership. It is not about competition here-- it's about real learning.
This school is great and has a very friendly/family type of environment. I think the reason it appears that this school may not do well in some aspects are because there are issues with english as a second language which will greatly affect standardized testing scores/averages (obviously). All of the elementary schools in Simi use the exact same curriculum, and other schools have high performance because the high performing students (with high parent involvement) are concentrated at those schools. I pulled my child out of one of Simi's fundamental schools to come to Arroyo, and my child has been excelling ever since.
The principal and staff are very helpful and friendly.
