    "We love Carden! After reading many of the reviews which range from positive to just plain snarky, it emphasizes the fact that One Size does not fit all. However, for our family, where education, well-being, compassion, and treating others with respect, are important qualities, this school has been a wonderful fit. We are happy with the curriculum and appreciate that the Flemings are always looking to improve on it. Along with a strong foundation in grammar and math (Singapore), there are also specialty classes for Science, French, Computers, Sports, Art & Music. The teachers that we've had have been dynamic, well-prepared and seem to truly love their jobs. Some Other Things That We Appreciate-- Homework starts in 2nd grade and is at an age-appropriate level (no busy work!). At Friday Assemblies the children present a poem or song with their class. It's a great tool for developing confidence. From what I've observed, behavioral issues are dealt with promptly and effectively. Fundraising is minimal, voluntary & directly benefits the students/school. After School Tutoring & Study Hall are provided free of charge. We feel that Carden provides a well-rounded education at a good value."

    "We love this school! Our children have thrived here. The curriculum is very well thought out and the teachers are attentive, responsible and kind. It is a traditional, structured school that does not compromise high standards to patronize the special interests of a few (complaining) parents. That's one of the reasons we like it. Ettiquette is important. They say the Pledge of Allegiance. They teach cursive. They encourage children to shake hands, say please and thank you, be polite and address others with respect. They allow children to present in front of the auditorium regularly to build oratory skills and lose fear of public speaking. All of these "extras" are in addition to teaching the basics of English, (Singapore) Math, French language, Computers, Music, Art and Sports, all of which they do very, very, very well. We have not yet met a teacher we did not like. They staff is amazing and we feel blessed to have this little gem of a school in our community. We have enjoyed this school very much and our kids love it too. Go Carden!"

    "We have had a terrible year at Carden Conejo. My son's teacher was very unprofessional and unpleasant. The admin never validated our concerns. They dont allow children to think freely, its as if they are molding these little drones. It just got more and more uncomfortable as the year went on. We couldnt wait for the school year to end so we could quietly move on. However I also knew that I needed to leave an honest review so that other families dont come in blindly. There are way better schools in our area than this. Glad to be gone."

    "TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE place. Run away as fast as you can!! If you care at all for your child/children, Carden is definitely not the place for your family. They are $$$ hungry. Teachers are awful, with the exception of two.. not to mention unqualified teachers (they fail to mention that). These teachers are "stay at home mothers" whose children are grown and they are now in need of a job. They are rude to the children and put on an act when around parents. I found this out first hand. The owners are EXTREMELY difficult to deal with and have ZERO peoples skills. I pulled my kids from Carden and they have never been happier! Wish we would have left sooner. The owners have also asked several parents to please write some positive reviews. Those are the few "positive" reviews you see. They have even gone as far as to "bribe" students to stay at Carden by telling them they will not have to participate in "big run day" and they can leave at 2pm instead 3pm. What reputable school does this??? I could go on...."

    "I am a grandparent of a student who was not treated well at Carden. The head of school is very difficult to communicate with. The teachers are not impressive. This school insists on teaching antiquated material. Luckily my daughter in law pulled my grandson mid year. He was anxiety ridden and hated coming to school. The school was unwilling to bend to accommodate our needs. I would not recommend carden and suggest several other private schools in the area."
