    "We are so excited about the Carthay School of Environmental Studies Magnet, coming in Fall 2014! My wife and I have been involved with the school for over 10 years, since she was pregnant with our first child, who is now in 4th grade at Carthay and absolutely flourishing. She and our 2nd grader have both been at the school since kindergarten and every day when we pick them at 6pm from the amazing (and grant-funded) STAR after school program, after 10 hours at Carthay, they don't want to come home, they want more time to finish their art project of game of Uno or Sudoku on the chalkboard or play on the apparatus. Every night when we ask how was their day at school, the answer is "Awesome!" The school was great from the beginning (the kindergarten teachers are fantastic and the kinder yard is so cute), but it's getting better every year and next year will be particularly exciting with the transformation into an Environmental Studies Magnet. The Garden Science program is well developed, available to all grades, and extremely successful. To that we'll be adding standards-based & project learning based curricula in the classroom, tied in with active learning in the garden, etc. Amazing!"

    "We are becoming an Environmental Studies Magnet next fall and will be expanding some of the great programs we already have like Garden Science. Our garden is amazing. We have a super cool aquaponics system set up where fish fertilize plants and the plants clean the water and go back into the fish tank. We are also a biosphere collection site for the Natural History Museum - studying the insect life in Los Angeles. To enroll your child in the school for 1-5, you need to go through echoices, but if you live in our boundaries, you will have preference (there is a buffer of spots for neighborhood kids). Environmental Studies is a great framework for Common Core and our kids will graduate with matriculation magnet points."

    "We recently moved into the Carthay neighborhood and look forward to sending to our kids to this school. In visits to the school, conversations with parents and time spent on the community Facebook page we have been impressed with the commitment and dedication of those involved."

    "To put it simply, Carthay Elementary is a wonderful school. Our son (in second grade) is in his third year at the school and loves it. The school is located in the heart of Carthay Circle, a historic preservation overlay zone rich in LA history. In it s hey-day, premieres of classic movies including "Snow White," "The Wizard of Oz," and "Gone with the Wind" were hosted at Carthay. The school is small, and feels like a family. Carthay is very diverse, truly reflective of the ethnic mix that is Los Angeles, with fifteen languages represented at the school. Both parents and community are involved with the school and help a very active PTA support additional enrichment programs, including Garden Science, Dance, Writers Workshop, Gifted and Talented Education, and a Science Fair. The quality of education provided by the dedicated and enthusiastic teachers at Carthay is unsurpassed. The school s transition to an ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES MAGNET in 2014 is long overdue and exceedingly well deserved. My wife and I are both faculty at UCLA, and we are proud that our eldest son is part of the Carthay family, and look forward to enrolling his younger brother in two years."

    "I am delighted that my daughter has a school in our own neighborhood that is enriching her academically and socially. The teachers have been instrumental in challenging her to strive to be the best that she can be. We are also very grateful for the after school care program Star which is a extra added treat that we are forever grateful for."
