Very focused and determined to meet students goals and potentials! Very open in a small community, and the teachers are phenomenal. This school district is accepting of all students needs, and wishes well for all who come into their schools.

My experience with Carlsbad Municipal Schools has overall been very satisfactory. They have prepared me for the next step in my life and ensured that I have the tools needed to succeed. Of course, there could be some improvements made for the betterment of the students. One of those things would be having more teachers. More educators could improve the quality of teaching in each classroom by allowing the student—teacher ratio to decrease. There are also a few schools in the district that need their facilities to continue to be updated so the classroom environment continues to promote success.
For a small town Carlsbad Municipal Schools does not have very much diversity, although there are many actives that students are able to join around the different campuses. Recently a program was started to raise awareness about bullying by the high school students and they travel around to different elementary schools throughout the district and teach elementary students about bullying, drugs, and how to say no. Also, every teacher is exceptionally certified to teach in his or her field and many do a good job with their curriculums. Carlsbad Municipal Schools does a good job at accommodating for their staff and students needs as a whole.
