Teachers at Carrillo are so caring and work very hard to give the best education possible to students. Thank you for being so generous with your time and always doing what is in the best interest of the children. Also, thank you to the office manager who also has a superb work ethic and creates a positive environment in the office.
There is a very low teacher turn over rate at Carrillo. Teachers are treated as professionals and their voice is heard through Leadership meetings and Professional Learning Communities where shared-decision making is practiced. Teachers keep up to date with current, research-based practices through many professional development opportunities.
Teachers are great leaders at this school and have high expectations for all! That is why this school is beating the odds of maintaining an A+ status even though the school has a high rate of low socio-economic families and are located in the inner city.
I feel honored to be a member of the Carrillo community. The teachers at Carrillo are dedicated to providing a quality education to all students. We all have one common goal which is to see all our students succeed.
Carrillo is a "Kind" campus. This means that we have partnered with a local non-profit organization called Ben's Bells which was originated by a young child wanting to help create a better world focusing on kindness. Our counselor and Learning Support Coordinator go into the classrooms and deliver lessons based on compassion, kindness and empathy. Students are exposed daily to ideas on how to show these traits in morning announcements.
I chose Carrillo as my own child's school, and then was fortunate enough to get a position as a teacher. My son's first years at elementary school have been made memorable by the time, energy, and complete care to detail that his teacher's have provided him. These characteristics follow all teachers at Carrillo. When I began teaching the fifth grade, all students came into the classroom well prepared, and with a uniform understanding of the high expectations that have earned Carrillo the designation of A+ School from the Arizona Educational Foundation. Not only are the teachers very professional, but the entire school community works very diligently to provide the best possible educational experience for all students.
As a parent, I have been very pleased with my children's success here at Carrillo Magnet. They were all very fortunate to be a part of a close knit community of teachers and learners. My children with the help of these educators have experienced a number of art, music and learning opportunities that they would have never received at the elementary level. The teachers are here to see every child succeed.
Thank-you, Mr. SV, out magnet coordinator. You work tirelessly to promote out wonderful school as well as recruit new faces and families to our student body! You help organize amazing and unique events that whole families attend and enjoy!
