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.

El Carmelo is generally a good school with qualified teachers and some very supportive parents. There are about 20-30% of new families every year.

I totally agree with one of the parent. In K, there are 2 awesome teachers who are doing a great job in literacy. Be aware that the 2rd one is doing a lot of damage : all the school knows about it.

Both my children have gone to Vargas since they were 5 years old. Vargas is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my daughter graduates this year. Thank you vargas for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!

I loved my experience at El Carmelo. The teachers were supportive, organized and caring. The foundation for my education was here and I'm grateful for all I learned here.
