El Carmelo Elementary School Reviews
I have two children at El Carmelo and have been incredibly impressed with the parental involvement, the high energy of the teaching staff and the overall education our children are receiving. The best part is that my children love to go to school and really love what they are learning. It all starts with the love of learning.
