Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The principal at this school is scary- beware. My kid signed up for art and wanted art (this is an art school) and didn't get it until the very end of the year and then only saw the art teacher about 7 times. XX loved art but only got to make two things and then it was over. When we went back this year she was gone and replaced with the one they had before that isn't that good. There are a few really good teachers here but for a so called art school - don't expect much.

The school itself is very clean and layed out well, they have many great teachers, but I have a big issue with the principal Mr. Waybrant. In all of the years my kids went to that school. Mr. Waybrant said hello to me a total of 5 times. If my husband was with me, Mr. Waybrant always said hi to him. I am not alone in this, I spoke to a few mothers who felt the same way. Mr. Waybrant seems to have an issue with women. :-(

This school is great 5 yrs. ago my Daughter started Kindergarten, she was scared and very insecure her very first teacher who was and is so nice, lovely and patient gave her the confidence and strength she need it, through the years all her teachers have been well prepared, the principal has done a good job choosing his staff The only thing I dislike about it are other parents who think it's only the teachers job to educate children and their lousy job with their kids but you will find that kind of parents every were

Our school uses visual and performing arts to encourage our students to learn. Everyone from the principle to the custodian care for every child and encourage them to become responsible, educated adults for our future.

I love our school because we are working together to enrich the lives of our children with the arts. We, as a school, believe it is important to have well-rounded children in addition to performing well on standardized tests. We have the principal, the staff, and the parent support to make this happen!

My school has a great staff. Everyone works well together to make sure the kids come first. Our scores have gone up every year since we opened in 2005. We also have a great group of parents who volunteer their time to help our kids.

Much too regimented. Teachers need to worry less about test scores.

We are one of the few schools who are still raising funds to keep fine arts in our school. Our school allows students who would not be able to engage in the fine arts to find their talent. Not all students find their way through a book, some find their way through music, drama, art, and dance. Our school believes that each student is an individual that deserves a well rounded education.

I really likes this school, The staff are the best , my child had a problem reading at the start of the 07 year by the time she got out of school her reading had improved 100%, I am upset because my child will not be able to attend carrillo this fall, I just hope that the new school she will be attending meets up to the standards that carrillo has.

This is a great school. The principal is wonderful. He is involved and hard working. I have had two children at the school for 3 years. I am a former teacher, so I am very picky. Great school, great programs, great staff.
