Our children attended Cary Woods. The school has a few great teachers, but also has some not so great teachers. It was our experience that when we had serious concerns about a teacher, our very real concerns were dismissed.

Cary Woods is a friendly school. The staff is great and so are the students! The faculty is committed to making a difference in a child's life. It makes a great start for a child to go to Cary Woods School.

I love the history of the school, it shows character and I feel every student and teacher who passes through the halls has left their mark. The teachers are caring and attentive and will work with parents on everything (good or bad).

I have had 3 students go to this school and have watched it go down hill. Teachers can and will make excuses, blame the children, and the parents. Most also have a tendancy not to follow through with what they say they will do and most teachers websites are out of date.

My daughter is a 5th grade teacher at Cary Woods. She is dedicated to teaching her students with a myriad of tools and skills that are 'outside the box' which enhances memory retention and student participation.

Cary Woods is a neighborhood school with great teachers who care dearly for our children and their future role in our nation.

Cary Woods is a TRUE neighborhood school nestled in the middle of an old Auburn neighborhood. The staff try really hard to hold on to old traditions like family picnics and carnival-style fund raisers. There is very little staff turnover, unless teachers retire. We have already had one child complete all 5 grades there and have 2 more children currently in school there. We truly do LOVE Cary Woods Elementary School in Auburn, Alabama!!

Cary Woods is truly a family neighborhood school. Not many of those exist anymore! The teachers and administration work extremely hard to foster a nurturing school environment where the children feel safe and are engaged in fun-filled learning experiences daily!
