Carrillo has been an "A" School for the last three years and has earned an A+ School of Excellence Award in 2015. If my kids were still in grade school, I would definitely send them here!!!

Teacher effectiveness:
SCHOOL LEADER
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.

Homework is considered practice at what students have already learned. Teachers follow district guidelines for the amount of homework that is issued.

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.

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.

Carrillo has created its own Character Development program which is part of our Positive Behavior Incentive System (PBIS). We have 10 character traits that we focus on: Life Skills- Honest, Kind, Respectful, Positive, and Peaceful; Scholar Skills- Collaborator, Communicator, Motivated, Responsible, and Risk Taker. Students are recognized for showing these traits in many forms, including Student of the Month Celebrations and receiving Cougar "Paw"riffic tickets.

Great school, great teachers, great programs! The principal, Lori Conner, is very professional. The magnet focus is communication through creative arts. Carrillo has a technology, art, and music specialist.

As a parent, my children went to Carrillo. They had a wonderful elementary experience and enjoy coming back to celebrate many of the traditions at the school such as Las Posadas. I would recommend this school to anyone seeking a supportive school.

The learning community at Carrillo is like no other! The staff is friendly, kind, caring, and highly professional. Carrillo truly invites the community in and makes everyone feel welcome and like family.
