    "2/8/2014 I would like to write about my experience with Carden Conejo. We decided to move to Westlake Village for business. My daughter originally attended kindergarten from the inauguration year of a brand new school to fifth grade in a planned community with children whom she had socialized with since they were three. It was essential that we find a safe environment to ease her transition. Beautiful grounds surround Carden Conejo. The area is stunning with verdant grassy areas adjacent to the school. The Flemings met us on a Sunday to give us a tour. We greatly appreciated their accommodating us. The staff is always very accommodating. I immediately knew this is the school I wanted. Very small teacher-to-student ratios, very dedicated, prepared teaching. Her teacher, Miss Lara Landry, was exceptional. Our experience was excellent at this school. Overall, Carden Conejo is a great school with a safe and structured learning environment and I would highly recommend. The students wear uniforms and are expected to use proper manners. I would not hesitate to give a reference. My contact information is avail through the office. Kathleen Peterson Westlake Village, CA"

    "We have had our children at Carden Conejo over the past five years. This school has far exceeded our expectations. One of our children has now moved onto a rigorous college prep school, is doing extremely well, and we attribute his continued success largely to the solid foundation he received at Carden. The school emphasizes manners and respect to one another - which we greatly appreciate. The smaller class room sizes lend to a productive learning environment. The academics are solid, and the teachers are firm yet caring. Literature is based off of classic novels which has helped to expand our children's learning comprehension and vocabulary immensely. Aside from the core curriculum - the kids have art, music, french, computer lab, and PE classes as part of their weekly structure. I was surprised to see some of the reviews as of late- and felt the need to speak up as a parent of three children who have flourished in this environment. We couldn't be happier with this school, its teachers, and its leadership. 6 stars from us."

    "Please read the negative reviews!!!!! They are absolutely the TRUTH. The owners of this school had to ask/beg parents and staff to write positive reviews. Forget about the playground ....you should be concerned with whats happening inside the classroom. Your not allowed in! the teaching methods are archaic as is 1/2 the teaching staff. The owners higher parents of students to be teachers Then they "train" them in the "carden method" . No child development classes no child psychology classes. If you want your child imagination and spirit squashed this is the school . The elitist families that attend the school are part of the problem. The school presents its self completely different then what is truly happening. If you want an accurate account of what the school is really like don't talk to a family currently attending, ask to contact a family that has left in the past 10 months! Their are at least 15 if not more families that have left the school due to the curriculum /attitude. Ask why....... Just so it's clear I am not writing this review to bash the school I am writing it so other children don't have the joy of learning taken from them. Good luck......"

    "Carden Conejo is such a wonderful school. The classes are small and the teachers are amazing. This school has well prepared my children for middle school and beyond. The academics are challenging and the environment is nurturing. This school is a treasure that has provided our children with a solid academic and social foundation."

    "I just have to laugh at some of the negative reviews, especially the screws found on the playground! I have been at Carden for over 5 years, am on the playground everyday at lunch and recess, and have never, ever, seen such a thing! Of course I think Carden is the best, and I firmly stand behind our school, teachers, and the philosophy of what Carden School stands for. I'm so tired of reading inaccurate statements from "former parents/students" who have left our school because, either their child couldn't keep up, or their child was not given special treatment because he/she was an actor/actress! We treat everyone equally, both parents and students, regardless of who they are, or who they think they are! I wish I could post every card, personal note, or letter written to me over the years! To the parents thinking of Carden, come to a Friday assembly at 8:30 and talk to any parent in the room, they will give you the real truth. To the haters, move on, and stop badmouthing our wonderful school!"
