    I have seen that the students at Carson Elementary School are very diverse in the ways of ethnicity culture and economic background. This makes it extremely difficult for both paid staff and volunteers to accommodate for all of the needs of all students however my experience with the school and its staff has proven to me that the school does a good job of educating the children as well as helping the children both at school and beyond. A major issue that the school has (due to its location) is that the majority of the students that addend Carson Elementary are from low income single parent families typically with little education themselves. This makes it difficult for the children and the families of the children in general regardless of the school involved however If a parent continues to be INVOLVED with the education of their child/children and other children then any issue can be overcome. This is easiest to achieve by communication between all parties and with open minds between the school parents and more importantly the children.

    carson is not a good school for your kids to attend. They dont have any real discipline for their misbehaved students. If you have a special needs child run as far away from this school as you can. they are unprofessional unreliable and barely competent
