    My school is the best because over the years I've developed good strong relationships with the caring staff. No doubt about it! As I am limited in my mobility I still have continued respect and support where ever I can. Thank you John W. Carpenter!!

    This is a really great school tucked away in a nice quiet neighborhood. The school is well kept and school spirit is important here.

    Carpenter is one of the best elementary schools in dallas. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else. They have lots of ECAs and there is something for everyone.
