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.
Two of El Carmelo's 3 kinder teachers are warm, respect children, and are skilled in literacy instruction.
The sweetest community of parents, children and teachers. These folk really care about each other.
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!
El Carmelo school has a great community - the kids are really good, the parents are great, and do a lot of things together, and the teachers are excellent. Lots of kids walk and bike to school every day. Overall a great school, and a very friendly environment to learn in!
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.
