    "All three of my children have gone through the public school system in Los Angeles and each of them has had a different experience but shared one thing in common: the schools they attended has that "something special" quality to them that enhanced the learning for each of my kids. Carthay is a very special school. A very diverse population, an enthusiastic teacher base, a dedicated school staff and some deeply devoted, energetic and active parents. The garden project in the school has won monetary awards. Plans for campus enhancements are in the works and next year, Carthay HAS BEEN DESIGNATED A MAGNET SCHOOL in the environmental sciences area! This is an astounding achievement for a small school in the heart of the Mid-City area. We got involved before our son entered Kindergarten and have already seen amazing things occur over the last couple of years in the school itself. What's most exciting, though, is our son loves to go to school, he never complains about homework, and we are thrilled to be able to walk him to school and feel he is in a very safe environment. We couldn't be happier with this school and we hope other parents agree."

    "Carthay Center Elementary is a wonderful community school that my daughter (currently 3rd grade, student since Kindergarten) absolutely loves. We have been involved with the school for 8 years and have been part of the growth of its environmental studies and science programs. The teachers and principal have been fantastic. Being a small community school, everyone knows each other, and the kids all look out for one another. The parents are engaged, and the teachers REALLY get to know the kids as they watch them grow up. The academics are great, and there are wonderful enrichment activities (chorus, dance, talent show, garden science etc.). We see friends from school wherever we go in the neighborhood (parks, restaurants, shopping, anywhere!), and it makes a huge difference in keeping our daughter engaged. The after school (STAR) program is also phenomenal, and as a family with 2 working parents, we couldn't do it without them! Next year, the school will become a community magnet school for Environmental Studies. We think this will be a huge benefit to the school and the neighborhood!"

    "This our second year at Carthay Center and our daughter loves it. The teachers and staff are amazing; they genuinely care about each and every student. The school has a rare soul that embraces all families, cultures, community and the environment. The STAR program is an added bonus with the aftercare structure and classes available. We truly believe our daughter is well off to a great start at Carthay and on her way to becoming a model citizen."

    "This is my son's third year at Carthay and we are very happy with the education and his teachers. Garden science, the writing program, the beautiful library and organic vegetable garden are just some of the wonderful elements. No school - whether public, charter, private - is the perfect school. Speak to other parents, observe classrooms, meet with the principal....this is how to best decide where to send your child to school. We are thrilled that Carthay is becoming a MAGNET school for Environmental Studies starting next year (2014)."
