    To set the record straight the new principal Mr Boyd is not bad and the school is not "going down hill". Also the sky is not falling nor is there a high probability pigs will fly. It's easy to criticize especially if you're not really stating what your upset about. He's doing fine and the school is not falling apart. We're very happy at Camino and in comparison to the last school we were at the principal is a 10 out of 10.

    Yes I agree with the last review the 2012/2013 school year new principal needs to go

  • (2 years ago)

    This has been a great school for years but as of 2012 we got a new principal and the school has gone down hill hopefully they will correct this error and get someone new in there next year
