As comments below, although it is a nice school, the school isn't focused in student participation and academic learning. Also, you need to make rather large amount of donations for running STEM programs . It's not mandatory but you know how it is... Doesn't have GATE program for kids who are ahead of their age level, and they tell us it's because all of our kids are gifted! A lot of ESL or ELD kids in school, and they tend to put them together into the same class, which I don't think is a good idea to let them learn English quickly. But, they say it's to promote education according to their learning skills. Some teachers are good but others don't seem to care much. Too many substitute teacher days. Teachers are absent frequently without notice, and you have to find it out from you kid.
Carmel Creek Elementary is such an amazing school for our children. They welcome the parents with open arms and makes our experience a memorable one. There are several volunteer opportunities that allow me to be in the classroom with my little ones. The school goes from K-3 and is smaller compared to others. They have buddy programs where the older children pair with younger ones for reading and physical education activities. This really helps the children make friends with all age groups. I absolutely love this school and all the support it provides for families!
Amazing school! Teachers and principal are phenomenal. Extra-curricular activities are also great. So very glad my kids have the chance to attend Carmel Creek Elementary! :)
High level of teacher absences and many students are ESL slowing the learning process overall. The school hits parents up for money frequently through various schemes that don't benefit the kids. To top it off, there is a unacceptable level of condescension from the secretary at the front desk.
