    Carney cares about kids. They offer music art drama and sports programs for the children. The magnet program allows for children from every background to have access to the education they deserve. They offer a leap pad program and the 21st century program where children learn that they can accomplish great things and they can read. The principle and teachers make you feel welcome at all times and the adjustment counselors and nurses care deeply about the children's well-being. Children receive a well rounded and cultural education at this school.
