    Not a very good school. Bullying a big problem and teachers don't seem to really care.

    There are few words to describe the magnitude about how fabulousness of this school. The Principal is really amazing she is so involved running and reading with the children and knows the children by name. The teachers at Cardiff are top notch so involved with the children and welcome parent involvment. You have to know that if your child is not going to this school I feel sorry for them this is the best school.

    Excellent teachers wonderful staff but an undisciplined principal. Beautiful grounds - where else do you get an ocean view from the playground? Tight fisted school board and a very insular clique-ish PTO.

    We have been very please with Cardiff School District. There have been a few leadership issues thru-out the years but we are hoping that those issues have been resolved and my kids can get back to the great education Cardiff has given them. I look forward to many more years in the district.
