    "Great school!!! PTA is making great strides adding Music, Art, PE AND Science. I have two kids in this school and could not be happier. And now that we have smaller class sizes....it's only going to get better. Small community feel. Great kids, parents and teachers!!"

    "I transferred out of this district to a school with smaller class sizes right before they lowered the class sizes. Friends that stayed say it is still crowded PTA is screechy with a "we wish we were still in a sorority" vibe..teachers always complaining about class sizes -rightfully so"

    "Poinsettia is making great strides! Art, Science, Music, reduced class sizes and more. It's amazing what a community can do when it bands together to work on a common goal ~ giving our students the best education possible."

    "Thrilled with the newly reduced class size (25:1 in my son's class). We are extremely happy with his teacher and my son loves his school. I've enjoyed getting involved too. We are lucky to be at a newer campus (6-7 years old?) with a smaller student body than surrounding public schools, which gives more of a community feel:)"

    "I recently visited my grandson and his family in Carlsbad and accompanied himto the Poinsettia Elementary School one morning, where he is a first-grader. When we arrived that beautiful morning, my grandson joined his classmates for fun and games before the school day began. The joyful chatter from the playground was contagious! When the morning program started, all the kids lined up with their classes to listen to a positive message from the principal and to stand at attention, hands over hearts, facing our flag as they said our Pledge of Allegiance. The teachers were by all indications totally dedicated to the wellbeing of the kids. It was truly a heartening experience for me, and based on my observation and other information my grandson's parents have shared with me, I believe Poinsettia Elementary is a truly exceptional school. I am especially happy to see the kids are learning the meaning of our pledge to our flag and nation. I'm proud that my grandson is able to attend this fine school. Nick Ganaway"
