  • Years ago there were very discerning things occurring. Taping a boys hands to his side while walking down the stairs because he put his hands in his pockets. Parents work and need full time care for their children. I'd stay clear. Teachers are not certified and are christian scientists. Strange. Pulled my children out.

  • Correction..I did not mean to give a 5 star rating. Quite the opposite. Parents, check your homework. Too, often parents are busy and need a school that will take the kids from early morning to evening.

  • Some of the teachers at this school do not have college degrees. Teaching credentials, not needed. In previous years, everyone was related. PL de Avilia is the niece of the founder. The founder had outlandous views. I saw a boy with masking tape around his hands tied to his body. This was punishment for putting your hands in your pocket. Hopefully, this doesn't happen anymore.

  • Both my sons have passed out of this schools and the basic education provided by Carden Academy has stood them well in hard times. I have come to realize that education is more about instilling the right attitude and values than about learning. I am glad that as a young parent I had decided to put my children in Carden Academy
