Ms. Caridad Calvo

At Imperial Elementary, we believe in educating the whole child in a safe and nurturing environment. Our staff is committed to developing our students as 21st-Century learners by teaching students to collaborate, communicate, think critically, promote creativity, and be citizens of good character.

I am privileged to work with such an amazing staff, and some of the best students and families in Downey! We are a district that believes Our Kids Deserve the BEST! I truly believe the more we work together, the better the educational experience for everyone involved!

Our Mission

At Imperial Elementary, we are “educating children for a productive life in the 21st Century.” Imperial Elementary School provides challenging academics with a common core curriculum on a supportive and caring campus. Imperial staff, in partnership with parents and the community, strives to help children reach their full academic potential and develop as a person of good character. We are committed to providing a safe and structured environment to better assist all students in developing responsibility for their own behavior and learning.


Our Vision

All students graduate with a 21st Century education that ensures they are college and career ready, globally competitive, and citizens of strong character.
