    This is an awful school!!! If you want your children to be educated by a bunch of teachers who simply gave up on their profession by all means enroll you child here!!! I have received homework assignments printed on the back of a teachers request to leave the school district. My kids HAD to go here as the good schools such as Golden Oak were full. DO NOT send your kids to this school!!

    Mint Canyon is an absolutely fantastic school. The population is small. Both the principal and the teachers know all my children by their name as well as mine and my husbands. Parent support and involvement is great. I truly love this school and the staff. All are superb!

    Mint Canyon is a hidden gem! It is secluded in the hills of Canyon Country and is staffed by some of the BEST teachers in the SCV! It has a small town feeling and the teachers treat me and my children like family! I am proud to say we are part of the Roadrunner Family!

    Mint Canyon is great elementary school. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The PTA is very involved. There is a great sense of community where everyone knows everyone else. Mint Canyon is the best kept secret in the Santa Clarita Valley.

    I think Mint Canyon is the worst school my son has ever attended. The principal is awful. I warn all parents. Choose a different school.

    Mint Canyon is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers who work well together. There are a few after school activities but not many. Parent involvement seems to be very high. Always lots of assemblies and fieldtrips for the children. Special Ed teachers are terrific also. School grounds are beautiful as the school was recently rebuilt. Library is excellent computer lab is up to date science lab is also great.
