I love this school. Mr. Brooks is a wonderful principle. The teachers are very kind and helpful. The office staff is just like any other school. Out of all the schools in Carson I picked this school.

This has been a great school since 2 of my children graduated with honors two years ago. However, with the change in management, particularly the Principal, I honestly believe and see that things haven't been the same and the quality of teaching has not improved. I agree with the other parent that bullying is definitely tolerated here, contrary to what the school is propagating. Hopefully things will get better soon, so us parents will have peace of mind that our children are being taught well in a peaceful and conducive environment.

The school is decent, nothing special, your typical somewhat average US school. What else can you expect.. I have a compaint about one of their staff member/employees needing training on how to deal with people. One of the crossing guards is so rude. He talks down on people, even an innocent pedestrian, and knows how to ruin your day. He needs to be beter trained on how to deal with the public. Other than how chaotic the morning dropoff is since there's no formal designated parking lot dropoff area, it's an okay school...

The school is fine and the teacher are ok but their office staff is TERRIABLE. They are rude and unprofessional. For example when I was in there taking care of a problem they didn't want to help with , I overheard one of the office staff members taking a call about a complaint about themselves as she was taking the call she proceeded to lean over and talk about the caller to the women sitting next to her as the caller was still on the line. this school really needs to getter a better office staff with work ethic.

I am one of the students at this school, and I believe there are absolutely no bullying problems, and there are excellent teachers that do their best to educate and prepare us for life.

I love Caroldale Learning Community School because teachers and staff are very dedicated, concerned, helpful and supportive of students and families. I had all my 4 daughters attended and graduated from this school. I enjoyed the relationships I had as a parent with all the teachers my daughters had in school. In addition, I truly enjoyed knowing the Principal, the Vice Principal and the office staff. They were very helpful. I was very involved with many school activities and joined the PTA. Thank you Caroldale Learning Community School for your dedication to the education and the future of our children.

The kids are fine and friendly. Though some of theme are very inappropriate and some also give in to peer-pressure very easily. The staff has gotten just a little friendlier. About 45% of the teachers, staff, and students really cared about the education and the face that are school is now being affected by the budget cuts. The school principal is very cautious about what is going on in our school. They also have gotten stricter about the secureness and safety of our school. But overall from my experiences at the school, I'd give this school a 6 out of 10.

I am an alumni from Caroldale, and honestly, from the 9 years I was there, many things have changed. The office staff and administration of the school have gotten stricter for no apparent reason, and they made some pretty stupid rules my last year there. I only stayed at the school for so long because of the teachers and students. They were the only people that kept me there. The environment isn't as good as it used to be, but if you're looking for a school with great teachers and students, Caroldale is definitely the right school. The administration and office staff don't matter much once you're comfortable with everyone else.

Neither the school principal nor the office staff are friendly. They do not seem to care about the welfare of the students. My child is lucky to have good teachers, though, who are caring and very knowledgeable. This school needs an overhaul of office staff including the principal.

School principal is not knowledgeable in the care and well being of the students. They need a new principal to be able to guide and maintain a high standard of scholastic as well as psychological well being of the students. Staff is not friendly. Teachers do not care about the truth when it comes to students welfare. They complain about too many students in their class and not able to take care of students problems. Per one instructor she said' I am not going to cater to one students need ' Bullys in school are not properly supervised.

I have had 2 years of bad experiences my son is in 5th grade now. I volunteer when I can and for the most part I see teachers who genuinely care for the students. We need more training with teacher/student communication/discipline. More control over the middle school children. Many children are being left behind because the lack of teacher education in disablities evaluations. We have lost our volunteer room to the computer lab which is a big inconvience for those providing the services for the parents and fundraising. We are definitely over crowded. The children need more excercise also. Incorporate more structured gross motor activities. Not many opportunities for artistic expression especially in Kinder where it is very important. Music is a another very important aspect of learning. Not only should children learn an instrument but be exposed to great classical and appropriate modern music.

The school is overcrowded, and the teacher's are forced to teach the kids at a faster pace, where kids have to learn faster. Which doesn't allow the kids any study time. The teacher's like to belittle the kids, saying other classes are better. The children are rewarded candy for getting good grades. That's ridiculous.

The teachers and staff really care about the success of the children. They have early intervention programs to help your child learn.

This is one of the best elementary schools in the city. It is a very diverse, safe campus. In my experience, the teachers have been very involved with the students/parents and genuinely concerned about the childrens education.

The school was reasonably good, especially when Ms. Sweet was there, however, now I hear it's going downhill.
