Carlos Elementary School is a wonderful small community in itself! Each child is treated like family and very much an individual. The teachers are so much more then teachers to their students! We feel truly blessed to have a little school with a huge heart for our children to attend! Even with the small budget, the teachers and the rest of the staff do everything in their powers to make each event special for the kids! So much dedication, it's truly inspirational.
