Sweet kids and a nice location. The yard could be bigger but the staggered lunch help the kids share the one and only field. The academics are strong, everyone is encouraged to do community service. A very nice place for children to grow up.

This is one of the finest schools in Los Angeles. The principal is excellent. I have never heard of any punishments such as detention yet the children here are the best behaved I have ever seen.

I graduated from there in the year 2000 and I felt SOOO prepared for high schoool because of the things I learned at Carlthorp. I am going into my second year of college now.

We are new to the school this year, but we couldn't be happier. The Kindergarten teachers are warm and nurturing. And the Kindergarten violin program was the highlight of our daughter's year. Who would believe our five year old could play Mozart!

Education is very good but weak on the arts department. Fairly young staff/teachers at times can be a problem when dealing with student behavior (inexperienced). No parent-teacher conferences unless requested by parent is another weakness.

Great academics. By the end of sixth grade, my kid knew every country and capitol in the world and knew hard algreba.I couldn't send my kid to a better elementary school. He isn't that smart but he still got into Harvard Westlake. What are the chances?
