It's funny that recent comments think the school went downhill after Jones left - are you kidding me?? Do you value academics at all? Jones gave in to every teacher demand and did absolutely nothing for education - that's a big part why we have a lot of weak teachers that still hang on today at the school - no doubt they don't get along but that's because the old blood is angry with the new blood. Sitting around and just putting in time doesn't seem to hack it anymore - far be it for the school's leader to demand performance. As far as being a bully - I have no idea where that comes from - I have never seen anything of the sort. Look there are some great growing pains going on - it'd be great if the teachers that don't want to teach any longer would just retire ... or just quit, either way get out of the way. You are too important to the future of our children - if you're unhappy then please, please, please LEAVE.

I have to totally agree with the negative reviews of the principal and staff. The principal is a paper pusher/admin type with no leadership skills at all. The principal frequently behaves like a bully while student bullying goes on unchecked. The teachers are no longer a happy team but just punch in their time and stay as little as possible. Some of the staff is rude. The school has gone downhill since Mr. Jones left. It became very obvious how bad the school is now that our child is at CVMS. There is no comparison. The situation is exacerbated by the PTA and parent politics. This school seems to be straight out of a mean girls movie.

It is clear that a district employee is writing some of these reviews. The principal is so incredibly difficult and she often has erratic behavior. I have spoken to numerous teachers who are AFRAID to be honest with the superintendent about her behavior. I know two families that attempted to complain about her and there was retaliation against them. It is a scary thing.

I am so proud and happy to say my sons go to Carmel Del Mar. It is a wonderful school with dedicated and professional teachers and staff who genuinely care about the students. Everything is so well organized that I never have to worry about missing any important information that I am supposed to know. Teaching materials are also very comprehensive and well balanced. My sons love telling me everyday what they learn right after school!! I see my sons grow every day intellectually, socially and happily!!

Carmel del Mar is an excellent school, both my boys have attended classes there, and each of them got teachers that were very talented, and passionate about their job. We were extremely happy with the core activities, as well the ESC (music, physical education, science, technology) as well as afternoon enrichment classes that were offered.

The feeling is that the "principal is very close to the superintendent"? Huh, how does that matter to the teachers? Look the Superintendent, through the popularly elected Board hires the principal (this one was hired under the former Superintendent by the way). The teachers work for the principal. Sounds like a a few angry "old school" teachers that are unwilling to yield to anyone (we can't listen to this principal because she's close to the superintendent, WHAT?!) want to go back to the old ways where the principal merely deals with parents and is dis interested in education. Sorry, thing have changed...for the better. Education is incredibly better today at CDM than it was 5 years ago - it will continue to improve. However, this changing education may not be a place for some teachers...they may have better luck looking elsewhere for jobs....more than likely outside of the District as I'm quite sure no other Principal here would take them.

The teachers are outstanding! Location beautiful! The principal engages in strange and erratic behavior. She always looks frazzled. The teachers with whom I am close do not like her but feel pressure since the perception is that she is in very close with the superintendent. Many of us are trying to get intra-district transfers.

My 2 daughters went to CDM K-6 grade and had an amazing experience! The school is very strong with their educational values, the teachers are wonderful and care very much for the children and the entire staff is warm and have a true concern for the families. We made great friends here and the teachers and staff are so appreciative and work so hard everyday to help guide the children in so many ways. I volunteered here endless hours and loved every minute of it. I learned what went on "behind the scenes" and could not believe the phenomenal relationships and care that happens. We moved to another school district 20 miles away and it was like black and white! My children had to be put in higher math classes and need to be given much more challenging work. My daughters cannot believe the difference in the 2 schools. Carmel Del Mar is by far the VERY BEST school any of my four children ever attended. I will always be so thankful for the opportunity we had to have been at this school. Nobody will ever have a better experience with teachers and staff than at CDM!

I disagree with some of the comments parents made regarding office staff. We always found both administrative staff very helpful and polite to us. We did notice though that they both have way too much on their plates and that their environment can get very stressful especially in the beginning of the school year. Carmel Del Mar has a private school environment: small school in a great community with the phenomenal parent volunteers and high academic expectations. PTA does a great job to promote parent involvement! Teachers and staff are one outstanding group of people who do a wonderful job! Our kids love Carmel Del Mar!

CDM is a great school. My son loves the 2 years he spent here. Some great dedicated teachers, especially in the ESC area. However, the principal is not very into academics so the bright students may feel bored with the curriculum. A lot of the extracurricular activities has been lost due to the economy. Very enthusiastic and open PTA.

It's a great school with amazing teachers, and most students are high achieving. Our two children are above-grade level in all areas, and stay stimulated. The secretaries up front are very moody and on their best day are indifferent to parents. The front office staff have been there longer than the principal, so they aren't going anywhere. If enough parents wrote letters to the district office, then they would possibly be moved to another site.

Overall the school is doing a fine job considering the economic times. The math and science program is great which is due to the ESC programs in place. The office staff is definitely rude. The school has two entrances, and I can hardly remember the prinicpal showing up at the other entrance to meet and greet children and parents. The reading program at the school is excellent. The same people seem to tbe running the PTA. That might have something to do with the economy. Small school environment!

Agree with your comment. The principal is lack of leadership and sometimes behaves like a bully. The office staff's bad attitude is known among many parents and has never been addressed by the leadership.

I agree with one of the comments here. The office staff are rude and attitude is very unplesent.

CDM is a really unique school due to the community support factor present. All children are special and important to this school, even those with challenges. All Staff are well qualified and caring. There is a high degree of student turnover within the boundaries, and that encourages everyone to adopt a more flexible manner of operations. This in turn results in a less stressful environment for our children!

CDM is just mediocre, the teaching uninspired. There are real problems with bullying and the curriculum is almost remedial.

Posted May 24, 2008

We were very impressed with Carmel Del Mar. My daughter went there for the last 3 years of elementary school. She felt that CDM prepared her very well for secondary school; especially in science, writing, and math. She particularly felt challenged by the 6th grade teachers. Teachers were hard-working & caring.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
