    "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."

    "Poinsettia Elementary has been amazing for my kids! The teachers are very challenging and we are loving all the family involvement in school events. The class sizes have not been an issue and we love how small, in population the campus is compared to other Carlsbad schools! We are so happy that we get to go to this great school.....Go Panthers!"

    "Poinsettia is an elementary that has on going problems with large class size, low teacher student ratio, a portion of the school population that are "entitled" - and deplorably low test scores. Just look up how they rate compared to other elementary schools in Carlsbad. Then make a note to yourself that, in general California schools suck across the board. If you can beg,borrow or steal the money to put your child in a good private school - DO IT!"
