47 Parent Reviews for Carrillo Elementary School

We moved form a different state. I was excited for my child to go to Carrillo because I heard a lot of great things about it. I was very disappointed with the front desk staff. They are so rude, never smile, they do no make you feel welcome at all! I was even more disappointed with my child's kindergarten ...  Read more

They say you can't make requests for teachers but they allow PTO parents to do so. If they're going to they might as well say it, maybe more parents would join the PTO. It's so obvious who the favored teachers are, just look to see which teachers the kids of PTO parents and other teachers get. Sherwood ...  Read more

IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE, BUT THE REASON THE SCHOOL IS RATED SO HIGH IS ONLY DUE TO PARENT INVOLVEMENT. THERE ARE VERY, VERY FEW TEACHERS WHO REALLY CARE OR LOVE WHAT THEY ARE DOING. IT IS THE PARENT VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE CARRYING OUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION. BOTH WITH THEIR VOLUNTEERED TIME AND FINANCIAL DONATIONS. ...  Read more

Carrillo Elementary School is the best public school there is! I have been there 8 years now with 3 kids going there and have only had amazing teachers and staff for my children. There is a lot of parent involvement also. My children feel safe there and have made great progress in their academics. ...  Read more

Despite the potential to be a great school this school is just mediocre. The pieces required to be great are there: good facilities, good students, families who value education and have adequate financial resources. Unfortunately they just can't seem to put it all together. The previous principal was ...  Read more

Carrillo has changed so incredibly much over the past few years and I m sad to say not for the better! The amount of money and fundraising they constantly badger us for is outrageous. Carrillo also wastes so much learning time on flag salutes with awards related to running and behavior. But, the ...  Read more

Carrillo is a great school...perfect? Of course not. Just like any school it has its issues but all in all it is a really good school and my kids are getting a great education. I would suggest to parents to get more involved. The pressure to donate is only there because the state is taking away more ...  Read more

Pros: Staff super friendly and seem very competent, great social atmosphere for kids, teachers doing a great job with many students and limited resources Cons: The funding crunch has caused the school to do questionable things to students while chasing money. If a child misses 5 days in a year, they ...  Read more

This school is doing wonders for my child socially. We move a lot and I usually had issues with my daughter's happiness and lack of friends. Not here. The teachers and kids seem to be loving and accepting. It must be that there is little drama coming from upper class homes. Whatever it is, it makes a ...  Read more
