    "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"

    "We came to Poinsettia Elementary from another country and it has been a fantastic experience so far. All the teachers and staff are helpful and have been really helping our grade 5 student adapt and fit in really quickly. The community / families of Poinsettia are wonderful and have made us really feel included. We are so happy to be at Poinsettia. It is great to find everything in one school great teachers, welcoming families, great kids........"

    "We switched over from a charter school. Really scared because of some bad gossip in the community but have found out it is only a few people talking bad. Since switching, my kids have never been happier at a school. We have been impressed with the teachers, families, everything. Yes, has bigger class sizes but most public schools in Carlsbad do. For the person below that says to do private, please note that everyone is not financially secure as you must be. Private schools are very expensive & you live in a little bubble which is not real life."
