I am a Dad at Knolls Elementary school in the east end of Simi Valley. I have a 2nd Grader with Mrs. DT and a 5th Grader with Mrs. Smith. They are extraordinary teachers! I was very upset by the recent budget cuts throughout the district and the increase of class sizes. I was also concerned about the Common Core implementation. It's remarkable to me how efficient and effective my children's teachers remain. Speaking with other parents at school I am so pleased to know that the teachers and staff at Knolls are a thoroughly committed organization. I am confident my children are receiving a terrific education.
My children attend Knolls elementary and we are extremely happy with our experience there. The kids have had wonderful teachers and have excelled in their studies. Their teachers are readily available if we have had any questions or concerns about assignments, etc. Our principal Ms. Gallagher is fantastic and very effective. The kids have also been exposed to art, music, science fair, and various other programs. I love the welcoming tight knit family that Knolls has become for us. Run, don't walk to enroll your kids here.
We are new to the school. I have already had a fare share of problems. My child does not do well here... his teacher is constantly absent... I don't see no help with his special needs.. he's in a split k/1st grade. He is high function autistic, I was not aware of a half day (no phone call or email.. not even a monthly news letter) my child walked home! I nearly lost it when I seen him at our front door! When I called the school it was like whatever in their eyes. I took my child his lunch one day cuz he forgot it.. I was told by office where to put it and they would make sure he got it... NOPE! I felt so bad for him... not only is he new and feels out of place.. this school is not making it any easier for him. Its just a joke! I got a call on my cell about my child .. ask for my husband..he's at work.. I'm the mother.. they at first would not disclose a thing to me... not even that my child was ok ..cuz I wasn't on the 'list'.... I'm the one who signed him up for school! After I started to get irriated, finally they said he wasnt feeling good. My goodness!! I cant say I would recommend this school :/ highly disappointed in the 7 weeks my child has been there.
Love this school! The teachers we've had have been amazing and so involved in helping my kids do well. Love that our school is so small and not huge where no one knows anyone. Our new principal is great too!
