Camino Real is a GREAT school! We transferred here this year from Peralta. What a difference! The school has many events throughout the year for the kids such as Market Day, Proficiency Rocks, and Ancient Day just to name a few. The GATE program is outstanding. My child has already gone on 4 field trips this year compared to 1 her whole 6 years at Peralta. 6TH graders are getting ready for a week of fun while learning at science camp and celebrating the end of the year at a water park. The high parent involvement makes all this possible. The teachers are wonderful and really care about the kids. The Principal, Mrs Winston is always seen around campus. She is involved in booster club meetings and even seen directing traffic after school . There is always something going on at Camino and the kids are really excited about school. They are definitely doing something right here as their climbing test scores can prove!
School is good but the new principal is as stubborn as they come. Refused to help my child when needed.
This is a wonderful school, just great, the principal is awesome, very professional and cares so much about the kids at camino, I'm very sadden to know that Mr. Campos will be leaving us, the school he is going to is very lucky to have him. You will be missed Mr. Campos. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
My Son has been attending this school since Kindergarten, he is now in second grade, we love it! Families and teachers come together to really make a difference for our children. Mr. Campos the principal is awesome, he get's involved in one on one interaction with his students. We could'nt ask for a better place for our son to start his love for knowledge!
We have been living in this area for a long time,Our son who is now a 12th grader went to this school our daughter who is now a 7th grader went here too, We have a son and a daughter still here we absolutely love this school the teachers are top of the line teachers they are all just wonderful, the principal Mr. Campos is a leader in the full extend of the word.

From a Parent, GATE Pres, Sponsor- My daughter - now 16 attended Camino since 5th grade and my son now attends since kindergarten. He is now in the 6th grade and has been in GATE since the 3rd. We love Camino Real. Yes, I must agree the front office staff does come across harsh and unfeeling but I must defend them all. They are wonderful ladies who, once you get to know them have wonderful personalities and we love them all. Mr Campos the principal is great too. A little stuffy perhaps but you cant win them all. He is awesome with the kids and thats what really counts. They look up to him. The parents are deeply involved with every aspect of the school which I think is wonderful. I know my son and I will be terribly sad once June rolls around and we leave Camino.
The people in the front office are indifferent and never smile. They come across unfriendly and uncaring. The teachers are not educated in meeting the kid's individual needs especially when dealing with children who experience ADD/ADHD, autism and aspergers. I'm greatful that we moved to another location and now we're very pleased with our new school. Camino Real needs to get with the times.
i have to say that if it were not for the lack of friendly service from the office staff that i would have rated this school a 4-5!. This past year was our first year attending this school for my two dtrs. Academically they did excellent and showed much improvement. However, i am not at all impressed with how i have been treated every time i go into the office and i have verbally expressed that concern direct to the office staff. I have heard this same complaint from other parents but seems that change has not occurred so we believe that this must be unimportant to the principal or school district. Our children will continue to attend this school but hopefully this concern will be addressed in the near future.
We have been a Camino Family since my son (incoming 4th grader) started Kindergarten. We have never had a complaint about the school. Both of my kids love being Camino Kids. We have loved each and every teacher we have had. They have a great GATE program, PTA, and parent participation. Through the district, Camino has the best reputation by far and we love it there. They offer many opportunities for kids to bring their parents to the school and watch performances, meet their teachers, or have a picnic with the other families. The principal is very motivated and offers exciting rewards for fundraising and he remembers all the kids and parents by name.
My son has attended more school then he should have in his elementry years and Camino is by far the best. I am so extremely happy with the school and principle and just started my youngest in Camino. This school and staff is very involved and truly care about the students..I cant say enough about Camino and Mr.Campos the principle.
I have 3 kids who attend Camino Real and I have been so pleased with the school, staff and parent involvement. The kids and I are so sad to leave such a wonderful school. We found a treasure amongst a sea of mediocrity when we enrolled here. The principal is very responsive and ambitious, teachers go above and beyond the call of duty, and the parent support is amazing! A true A+ in my grade book!
I am so proud to have been a part of the Camino Family since 1998 and very happy that I still have four years to go. The teachers are caring and kind and with one of my children in special ed. I really appreciate that.
Camino real is a wonderful school the kids really enjoy themselves. I have three children preasently enrolled at this time and all three enjoy their teachers having a good repor. I have had two others children that have gone to camino real and also family members as well they all have high praises welcome to our new principal mr.Compos. He is wonderful and fair. His listening skills are excellent and he is profesional at his job. I am very impressed on what he has brought to camino real compassion, understanding and leadership in what is best for our children. I would like to say the ladies in pta keep up the good work you are wonderful and appreciated. Excellent staff:mrs. Anderko, lisa, angel and all of our supervisors : ) my kids love them always having great things to say about them and always wanting to say hello. Excellent job keep up the excellent work :)
We have been a 'Camino Family' since 2000. The teachers have been excellent and PTA & parent involvement are exceptional! Both of our children have been extremely successful students at Camino. We would highly recommend this school to anyone. It's the best elementary school in the district!!
Camino Real is a great school! The parent involvement is outstanding and their PTA committee is very strong! We were saddened to hear that Mr. Owen will be leaving, but the school district he is going to is very lucky to have him for a Principal. Mr. Owen you will be missed very much!
My daughter took Kindergarten at Camino Real. The teacher, Mrs. King, was great. The curriculum was challenging and kept my daughter involved. There were also various field trips throughout the year. If there is one aspect I would complain about it is that parents are not allowed to help in the classroom if they have younger children. My wife would have gladly volunteered often but was not allowed to because of our younger kids. I would think they would want parents involved to the greatest extent possible. Besides this one annoying rule, the school was awesome. The administration and staff were all very nice and helpful.
Camino Real is a great school. The music program is very good my daughter is in her first year of band loves it and has mastered at least 20 simple songs. The parent invovlment is very high there is lots of family nights at local resturants on top of two picnics a year. Most teachers are very open to parent invovlment in the class. Having parents that can come in come in once a week.
The teachers are great, but they have to teach to the star test which is bad.
Compared to the other Riverside schools that my son has attended, Camino is the highest on our list. The 1st grade teacher that my son had this year, by the name of Mrs. Primmer, was a very wonderful and patient teacher. Her teaching style contributed to our son becoming more confident.
