    "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!"

    "Great school! The overall parental involvement is very impressive. There are so many fun activities throughout the year to help support the school and to keep both the parents and students involved. It's great to see how supportive the staff is too. I really like the new principal."
