    Such a great school... My son has one billion freiends and the teachers are very nice...

    I DON'T like this school because there are trash everywhere. The proctors are TOO strict and don't treat kids very well. I wanted my dad to pull me out of this place because of it's unstableness and the unsafeness and I have been bullied but he refused to take me out of this place and said it IS a good school but when it's not! I would highly NOT recommend this school to anyone. But the teachers the parties and the field trips are okay on the other side.

    the best you would want for your kids.

    The principal isn't that fair and involved at this school. Depends on who your kids' teacher is(are) you get different levels of academic results. Some teachers are really nice and go beyond to help out though. PTA is highly involved.

    Hello Parents I have 2 kids going there. They are in 5th grade. I am very disappointed with the school. I moved to Arcadia 2 years ago because I heard of the District's academic reputation. Well I am sorry to say my boy who is in fifth grade has learn the minimum during the whole year. They did not even have one science test. While my girl also a fifth grader could hardly keep up with the homework and tests. My boy was in a combo class where one teacher teaches 30 kids from 4th and 5th grade.

    Camino Grove academic programs and teachers are terrific. Music education is avaiable beginning in 4th grade. Physical education programs are lacking and below par.

    We moved to Arcadia because of the high academic standard found in their public schools. My son is so proud of his school and is learning so much in 1st grade. The teachers and staff at Camino Grove surpass my expectations. I also work for a public school in Los Angeles and I cannot express how pleased I am with this school. We are looking forward to putting my daughter into kindergarten in two years.

    My daughter was a past student here and loved it. The teachers were excellent especially Mrs. Pahan. She went above and beyond to help the students and used love as well as discipline in her teaching. I noticed there was alot of parent involvement through a variety of programs I donated time as an art docent. Students love this school.
