My child has been bullied at Canarelli and nothing was done about it. On top of that my child is constantly being suspended or RPC'ed for small things. She's not fighting but typical things that some teenagers do get her sent to the office constantly. They are too strict which makes this a terrible school. Learn how to redirect their energy, challenge them and motivate them. Instead you just want to get them out of your hair. The staff simply doesn't care about the children who don't fit into their perfect little mold.
Canarelli is an amzaimg school. It has dances events. I have no words of how excellent all there teacher are. Every morning I look forward to come to school! If you are a parent reading this and live near by this school come because your child can be amzaing.
My daughter attended 7th grade here. She loved it, and truly blossomed during her time there. The teachers were fantastic, with the exception being her science teacher (who by accounts sounded like an emotional nutcase). This schools music program is simply amazing! Mrs Simonson, who leads chorus, truly puts her heart and soul into these kids. The school nurses seem to be a bit unorganized, but the front office knew their stuff. As a parent, I appreciated how many school functions and dances they put on for the kids. It was a nice reward my daughter looked forward to.
This school is great and they have great programs and great teachers. The Jazz program is amazing with students sounding like pro. There are lots of other things that this school can improve on to, like there are few teachers maybe one or two who are acting like bullies. They would scold students in public without proper investigation of the matter. For example, one time during lunch, there was a lot of mess under the table, and my son happens to be there but he noticed that those chips were there already even before they got themselves seated. The teacher approached their table and start ranting about the mess and threatening them to be called to office if she sees those mess again. Good point, only that she was barking on the wrong tree. Not so good as a role model. Teachers should really learn how to lead by example. Overall however, Canarelli has a lot of other good teachers, who really love our kids and show genuine concern, and because of that they are forever remembered and cherished.
