Carthay elementary School

This school happens to be my neighbourhood school. Does anyone have any experience to share at this school? Would you recommend it to any future kindergarteners?

Hi rtvann,

The tours look like they start up after the first of the year:

And judging by the recent reviews, it's doing better:

Good luck, and let us know what else you find out!

My daughter has been attending Carthay since kindergarten. She loves the school and we have been very pleased with her teachers, the principal, and the after-school program.

Carthay's API score for 2012 is 816, an increase of 30 points. All student segments posted substantial increases.

The school is having a garden work day this weekend (October 13, 9am - noon). You're welcome to stop by, pull some weeds, and meet current parents.

Thanks for the invitation. Will definitely try to visit the school.

It's a GREAT idea to get a boots on the ground type of feel for a school. You can talk to current parents, see how many of the teachers participate, and see if a lot of the current students have younger siblings.

Good luck!
