    Camellia was amazing. You can become a cougar(the mascot) and a member in the Camellia family. If your a parent and you read this apply your child in Camellia. Your child will have great memories of Camellia when they leave for middle school. This school taught me so much and it can be spread to others. Camellia is one of the best elementary schools in Sacramento. Take my advice and make your child a cougar.

    Academics are tougher than any other schools I ever sent my child to....a lot of homework prepares them well but could be too much for some kids to have five to eight assignments of homework each night it takes some used to! I love the school teachers ares strict and wonderful!

    I am a parent of 2 student who went to Camellia. Camellia is a wonderful learning environment for students. The students are taught the basics of reading writing and math as well as to always act in an acceptable manner be responible for their actions by accepting consequences for improper behavior/actions and always be respectful of others. Students are taught how important school is and it shows by the high state API score that it has recieved yearly and all the other awards the school has earned. The students are proud of their school and their accomplishments. This school proves that a school with a large amount of disadventaged and ELL students can be high performing school.
