    "I have been to many different schools, and by far San Carlos is the best. I have experience with the middle school program in particular, and it is wonderful. Most of the teachers are supportive and intelligent. However, some teachers in particular get on my nerves and I cannot honestly understand why they are working there. The other thing is that Mrs. Bennet(the principle) seems to treat the older students the same as the younger one. She has a lot of useless and offensive rules to the older children, as if she doesn't trust them to be in a classroom alone. I had no problem what so ever with the homework. It is incredibly minimal in comparison to what some reviews say, But then again, not everyone is as competent as the child I knew. Everyone at the school is very welcoming and the students are intelligent, for the most part. Also, the 8th grade goes to Washington DC over spring break, and I think that is a wonderful opportunity. Faith is a big part of the school and all faiths are very welcomed. Personally, I thought Mr. Krislyn was the best teacher in the middle school program , as he was charismatic and very interesting to talk to."

    "San Carlos School provides a safe environment among generally well-behaved and respectful children. Education is adequate, but with an emphasis more on busywork than on real academic advancement. Expect your child to start with 1-2 hours of homework in Kindergarten, advancing to several hours of homework by the end of Middle School. However, also expect your child to have to catch up with his classmates in a some subject areas after San Carlos, arriving at the next school (even public). Teacher education levels and ability to educate children vary wildly from excellent to miserable. Parental involvement is a definite requirement, which is easier to fill if one parent does not work, but the requirements are manageable, even if only one parent puts in the time. As a non-profit, and to keep tuition costs down, there is constant fundraising and raffling, but this also provides opportunities to fulfill parental volunteer hour requirements."

    "San Carlos is a fantastic school. After reviewing several schools in the area, we decided on San Carlos. We have been very happy here. As soon as you step onto the school grounds, you get a sense of belonging. Everyone is like family. The children are challenged not only in the classroom but also at home by the amount of homework they are given. My daughter really loves the school, her classmates, and her teachers, as do I."

    "We lost a wonderful 3rd teacher. Mrs. Paris prepared our son very well. She was the best teacher."

    "This is our third and last year at San Carlos before the military move. Our new third grade teacher is outstanding as are the other teachers. Our daughter has learned so much and enjoyed this year tremendously. We will certainly miss San Carlos teachers, the principal, music teacher, Spanish teacher and the wonderful parents/friends we have made."
