Fantastic and active PTA great test scores and weekly ESC classes (Art PE tech science & music) taught by certified specialists. There's also band for 5th & 6th graders (though the music program is a bit lackluster as the music teacher seems really checked out most of the time). But there is also a free after school PTA sponsored drama program which is very good. Except for a couple of teachers (one in 6th grade & one in 4th) you can't ask for better educators. The office staff is wonderful. There is a growing Asian (mostly Chinese nationals) population which is changing the feel & flow of the school as they grow in number. These parents do not participate much but like to complain & want more homework & more science/math.

This is a great school if you are Asian or Caucasian. If you are not this is NOT a great school. These teachers and child care workers could not care less to inform me as a parent that my 5 year old with a history of heart disease was sick. This was totally irresponsible. Reason no one was paying attention to her. They claimed she did not tell them that she was ill and she clearly says she did.
Sycamore Ridge is an amazing school with the best principal teachers and staff. It's academics are top notch and the school has a multitude of resources to accommodate any student and his/her needs. The Sycamore Stallion students exhibit the Six Pillars of Character Respect Fairness Caring Citizenship Responsibility and Trustworthiness and the school environment is a safe and fun place for all. In addition parent involvement and volunteerism is extremely high. I highly recommend Sycamore Ridge Elementary School and am very proud that my children are students in the school.
its is a fun and good school but the teachers are way to worried about you and you wont have so much freedom time at all
Sycamore Ridge School has created a fun and safe environment for my child. The best part about the school is the faculty. The teachers are phenomenal! The teachers are in control of their classes and they seem to always have a great solution for resolving any situation that may come up. The principal shows her enthusiasm and dedication. She gets to know her students. As a whole the program is run very smoothly. Most of all - my child is very happy there. He does not complain about not wanting to go to school. He gets up every morning ready to start his day.
I have 2 girls here. One is a 6th grader and one is a preschooler. My 6th grader is in the band and receives 2 hours a week of band practice. The teachers are wonderful!
2nd year school in a highly regarded school district. Things are starting to shape up (both the academics and the extracurricular programs) and principal is very present. It also houses a district preschool program for the children with special needs.
