I had my daughters moved to a California Distinguished school in the Alta Loma School District after i saw Carnelians test scores. My daughters love their new school and are learning at a faster rate.

This school is underated. There are some great teachers and average teachers like any other school. It is what you and your kids make of it. Joan Sanders is great and my kids have excelled there.

Cant say enough great things about this school. I fact, Im getting a little misty eyed thinking about the fact that my son will be leaving to Jr High next year. My experience with Carnelian has been a little different than most parent's. My son has autism and is in a special day county class on the Carnelian campus. Before Carnelian he was in other schools that sort of segregated the county class and they were sort of left to do their own thing. At Carnelian my son's class IS A PART of Carnelian just like any class. They attend all assemblies, field trips and school functions. They also have a "special buddy" program that allows 6th graders to partner up with kids in my son's class and to basically be their friends and teach each other about differences. My son's teacher Mrs Coronado has been a gift from God and is amazing. I wish I was a millionare and could pay her to follow my son to his new school! The principal is also super great. I attend many school awards assemblies and after school functions and she reallys seems to pump up and motivate her school. Wish Carnelian taught up until 12th grade so my son could attend until he graduates!

I have 4 kids that have been in a few differant schools in California & Texas and like with almost everything there is good and bad. I have dealt with teachers just there for a paycheck and teachers who are waiting for me at my home @ 930 pm when I got home from work to have a parent teacher conference. But Carnelian is by far the best school my children have had the privilege of attending. The teachers teach from the heart, the principal knows every childs name I think. The only bad experience I've had was with a male 5th grade teacher who no longer works there. THANK YOU TO THE WONDERFUL STAFF AT CARNELIAN !!

We have been at Carnelian for 3 years now and I am very pleased specifically with the 5th grade team. They care tremendously about all of their students, they are very creative, and they have lots of fun all year round. Their students love them and never want to leave their classroom. They have even made the name for themselves FTF and it is so clever and we love seeing the 3 of them together all of the time. Mr. Chaix...Thank you for bringing them aboard, They are a fantastic addition to the Carnelian family.

The lower grades are great, but some of the upper grade teachers don't teach you very much.

Carnelian is a very good academic school for children. They have great teachers and the parent volunteer's are endless. All four of my children attended this school and I never once had a problem that couldn't be fixed or attended too. They really do care about the children.

My oldest son has been going here since kindergarden and has had good teachers all through 5th grade. My youngest son just started kindergarden this year and the classroom size is unbearable.

My son has gone to this school from 3rd grade, and is now in 4th. So far our experience has been wonderful. The teachers he's had care about their students very much. He is in GATE, which has been full of art and science. As with all schools, sports are not big on the list because of cutbacks in funding. He loves his P.E. time though. The school has a great PTA, which hosts many activities for the children, such as Book Fair, Family Nights, Holiday Bazaar, Birthday Book Club, Student Store, and other fun stuff for the kids. The staff, specifically the aides, love the students. They put music on for the kids (depending on the theme)on Fridays, which results in a lot of silly dancing. The Student Senate is very active as well. There is a lot of parent involvement.

I have had very positive experiences with both of my older kids at this elementary school.Almost all of the staff is kind and helpful. There is a family feeling among the families and teaching staff, and I cannot rave enough about the Vice Principal Melanie Barney. I would recommend this school to anyone moving to this district as a wonderful public school for any child to attend.

I have one child enrolled and two following close behind. My child has attended two years at Carnelian. We moved because the schools in our old city were terrible. We moved here for the number one reason: the schools! Our child has already improved by leaps and bounds. We could not be more pleased! Thanks Carnelian.
