LOL...this school and the school district don't deserve the reputation. The kids perform well because parents spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on tutors. If the teachers are doing their jobs, the kids in AUSD wouldn't need tutors. Their special education is the toilet. They use special education to funnel average children away to prop up test scores. Yes, they're still using the 60 year old funneling process. An autistic girl couldn't socialize and speak, for years, even with the help of a speech therapist and a dedicated teacher. She only started speaking and socializing after another autistic girl joined the class and did their job for them.

This is such a great school. My daughter's teacher knows her strengths and weaknesses and works to find a balance to both push her further in her strengths while improving on her weaknesses. Her teacher is extremely compassionate and responsive. There are so many events and school programs throughout the year to expose the kids to history, culture, and the arts as well as to have fun. I love how involved the parents and PTA are in the success of the school. I've seen a parent comment on the language of the children and the way they dress but really, that's up to the parents, isn't it? I mean, yes...the school can discipline children and prevent them from using inappropriate language at school but unless the parents control that at home, the problem won't be resolved. As for dress, there is a uniform standard. Again, the school can send notes home but ultimately, it's up to the parents to ensure the kids are properly dressed. All of that aside, I think that academically, this is a great school!

This school is good academically. But students must be taught good manners and right conduct.. Whenever I'm in that school, I hear a lot of students saying bad words repeatedly, unbelievable!!!! These are young kids I don't know how this school can tolerate such ways and attitudes. A 9 yr old student teaching my kid to take pills when parents don't like to have babies. Students wear mohawk hairstyles and improper uniform. Good education is all worthless if children are not being taught or reminded of the needed basic manners/values in their formative years.

The principal isn't that fair and involved at this school. Depends on who your kids' teacher is(are), you get different levels of academic results. Some teachers are really nice and go beyond to help out though. PTA is highly involved.

Hello Parents, I have 2 kids going there. They are in 5th grade. I am very disappointed with the school. I moved to Arcadia 2 years ago because I heard of the District's academic reputation. Well, I am sorry to say my boy, who is in fifth grade has learn the minimum, during the whole year. They did not even have one science test. While my girl, also a fifth grader, could hardly keep up with the homework and tests. My boy was in a combo class, where one teacher teaches 30 kids from 4th and 5th grade.

We moved to Arcadia because of the high academic standard found in their public schools. My son is so proud of his school and is learning so much in 1st grade. The teachers and staff at Camino Grove surpass my expectations. I also work for a public school in Los Angeles and I cannot express how pleased I am with this school. We are looking forward to putting my daughter into kindergarten in two years.

My daughter was a past student here and loved it. The teachers were excellent, especially Mrs. Pahan. She went above and beyond to help the students and used love as well as discipline in her teaching. I noticed there was alot of parent involvement through a variety of programs, I donated time as an art docent. Students love this school.
