  • I have had two boys graduate from Carson St Elementary. The teachers are great and the principal is a great guy. I will miss the school but the kids are moving on. Good luck Carson St.

  • I think the parent below that only gave one apple has incorrectly posted his/her review on this school's profile. My daughter has been a student at this school for the past 6 years and I don't know of anyone in administration named Mrs. May. AND if you didn't report an incident like that to administration, then you're in the wrong, not the staff! I couldn't imagine my daughter going to a better school! Admin, teachers, and most other staff are excellent. It definitely feels like a family.

  • Four years ago my daughter received a terrible, quarter-sized scar on her forehead from being knocked onto the school's asphalt grounds from its elevated playground. At the time there was a crush of kids and absolutely NO supervision. We received a form sheet (daughter given "Bactine and TLC") and no apology of any kind, no word of explanation. To this day, despite at least a dozen attempts to have (...) install rubber padding to cushion these INEVITABLE falls from their raised playground, she refuses to be bothered.

    Now my daughter gets called scarface. There aren't words to express my contempt for this school and its management.
