    We just moved from a school that was unwelcoming so Carson is a breath of fresh air. Even though we had only completed 2 weeks it has been wonderful. Principal and teacher were very welcoming.

    Carson is a beautiful school. The staff work together to ensure student success. The principal is an accessible caring person who truly works to make the school a safe and academically rigorous environment. My daughter loves to come to school each day. I love that she is getting an ethnically diverse experience!

    The level of service the administration staff offers is excellent. They make you feel like your child is the most important person. They really do care.

    Carson Elementary has a great ethnic mix absolutely dedicated teachers and staff and a very responsive principal with an open door policy. She genuinely cares about the students as well as staff and parents' concerns. If Carson has a weak point it is that it could use a lot more parent volunteers to assist in classrooms with some one-on-one or small group coaching so all students have every opportunity to grow and learn.
