This school is fine, except that the principal there is very rude. Her name is Kim Kroyer. She yells at everyone, even people that don't go here. She is NOT polite and she is a principal but doesn't act like one. She doesn't respect anyone and questions everything, like a detective. She yells and points out the parents, staff, and students. She scares everyone and because of her, this school is going to lose stars. She won't let anything get away without questioning it.

My daughter has been at Carrillo for 3 years now. She had a WONDERFUL TK and K experience and now she is having a FABULOUS 1st grade experience. The teachers at this school care about these kids as if they’re their own. My daughter is learning the value of education, reading, responsibility, relationships, discipline and FUN all at the same time. Her teacher has a great personality, she’s fun, witty and my daughter respects her. She is excited to wake up and go to school every morning. After school she walks out with a smile and gets in the car and unloads about what she’s learned that day. She can’t wait to show me what’s in her backpack. I can barely get a word in on the way home! The teachers here are dedicated and they care. I can drive through the neighborhood at 5:00 on any given night and my daughter’s teacher is still there in her class. Dedication. My daughter still talks about her TK and K teachers to this day because they had such an impact on her and taught her the “routine” of school and gave her a platform to build on. They made me smile then and they make me smile now knowing that had such an impact on her school experience. I drop my daughter off in the morning and I know that she is in the best hands possible outside of our home. It’s time for more parents to get involved. I volunteer when I am able but we all need to be involved and see how our kids learn and interact with others. Our children learn so much at school that they will need in life. The staff and Principal at this school should be commended for their dedication and hard work with OUR children. THANK YOU!

This school is HORRIBLE. I've never experienced something so bad.I was at this school for 6 years. When i had my promotion,i felt like i was free. There is this one teacher,my 5th grade teacher,in room 22. My original teacher retired and this teacher came in as a replacement. Class of 2012. Where are you? Do you remember the teacher everyone used to complain about in 5th grade? She was horrible. I would stay up at night and just not want to go to school. When i wake up,i was afraid of going to school. She was such a horrible teacher. She made one of my friend cry. WE'RE 5TH GRADERS. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM US? I get mad just thinking about this subject. I guess its time for me to end this.

I love this school because I can trust my kids with their teachers. I volunteer often and I know that the teachers at this school truly care about their students. They often stay late to prepare for the next day and I've never heard them complain. All those that complain about this school aren't complaining when they drop their kid off and sit at home to do nothing.

I have all the rights to complain and judge this school. I enrolled in this school on September 2006. I'm now going in 9th grade. I'm going to be in a whole different district. So i'm going all out. Don't worry. I'll go after my middle school too. These schools. Like what the person below me says. These teachers are so disrespectful. I would want to punch them. I did have the same teacher as the person below me. Jamie S. I would give out her last name,but lets just say im alittle too kind to do so. I remember during free time,i was talking to the students on my table. She looks over at us and called us all up one by one. She was the reason why i failed most of my tests. I did have sleepless nights. Not wanting to see her face in the morning. It ruined me. I wanted to transfer out of school. That horrific teacher gave me nightmares. That STUPIN teacher. All of my 5th grade class hated her. I don't ever want to look back and see her as a memory.She was my nightmare. She was someone i hope i would never come across I just cant believe i went through so much pain only being 10.It felt like someone shot me and i couldn't get up till the end.I hate you Jamie so much.I hope the worst 4 u
