Open Quote Carthay Center Elementary School is a wonderful school beyond what the test scores show. There are many low income students and English language learners, who tend to score lower on standardized tests, but our daughters are receiving a wonderful education and score regularly over the 90th percentile, so the teaching at the school is great. We are all very excited that beginning in Fall 2014 the school becomes a Magnet school focusing on Environmental Studies. The school has an amazing garden, and students have the opportunity to learn hands-on about biology, ecology, etc. with the Garden Science program, funded by the PTA and delivered by STAR Education. The PTA also sponsors weekly Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) classes for students identified as gifted or talented, a Writer's Workshop program, a California Dance Institute program, and so much more. There is a free after school program available, also by STAR Education, which provides PE, math and literacy learning opportunities, and extra-curriculars such as art, wood-working, gymnastics, etc. Our daughters love the school, they love going to school, they are thriving. It is a great school. Close Quote

Open Quote My son has been attending Carthay since Pre-K. In September He will be entering the 5th grade. His teachers have been phenomenal and he has enjoyed them and the school immensely. If more parents became involved with the school and had more dialogue with their children's teachers this school could become truly outstanding. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
