    This school is a mess. Too many kids poor leadership and the right hand does not know what the left is doing. If your child does not fall right in line immediately they target them as a ADD ADHD and will not hesitate to put blame on the parents with really lackluster approaches toward helping your child succeed.. Families are constantly leaving this school. I have been at this school for 5 years had two kids here and its been one of the most stressful and difficult experiences in my adult life. If you can help it don't go to Coyote Creek.

    I am just beginning with finding out my child has an LD and they have been great out it. They have been very proactive in trying to figure out ways to support my son and have also been on time with the IEP meetings and procedures. They have all been very supportive and have not shyed away front he matter instead have tackled it head on. My son is in second grade and I hope the support and involvement continues.

    Just no. The kids are low-class. In fourth grade 2010 my daughter was very sad. First a girl stole her key-chain and presented it to the class saying she "made it'. My daughter told the teacher but she didn't do anything about it. They also treated her like she was mental because she couldn't pronounce her 's' and 'ths' right. There were also many cliques and my daughter tried to hangout with them but all they did was ignore her and made her cry. Horrible school with no advice from any teachers.

    My kid's school is Coyote Creek. It is wonderful school. We are very happy with it.

    I have a 2nd grader at this school. We've been here for two years. Some teachers are good some are horrible. The biggest problem is that the teachers are powerful and the Principal and Vice Principal while good cannot make the changes they believe in. Also very segmented school. Parents operate in groups and clicks. This school is huge and therefore is spread thin.

    Coyote Creek is full of caring professional teachers and we have an excellent principal. The children here are friendly motivated multicultural and hard-working. We keep students to high academic standards and provide effective interventions for students who need support. The parents are very supportive of the school; there are many parent volunteers and parent contributions fund our abundant technology (currently laptops and iPads for student use and smartboards in all classrooms) as well as science lab art library and intervention programs. I have worked in many schools and am very impressed by this one.

    My child was at Coyote Creek for 2 years. They suffer for lack of leadership- no principal too large a student body and teachers who are there based on seniority rather than performance. Many bad teachers cannot be removed. Many families leaving.

    Coyote Creek is the most nourishing schools for our children. Our principal and teachers are just the best. I have already had one daughter start and finish K-5 and now have my second daughter in First Grade there. I have not had one bad experience in 7 years!
