Carson Jr. High is a great school ! The days I got to stay at Carson were great ! I met new friends , new teachers , new people , and new things I didn't know about. The teachers at that school are great ! My favorite teacher was Mrs.Ruiz ! She helped me get better with my English and also with my grammar!The principal is a great guy!I moved from Carson. I cried on my last day, it was sad leaving my friends behind and moving to another school . I mean I had A's & B's when I went to Carson , but then I moved to Kyrene Middle School and my grades went down.I went from A's & B's to C's & F's. I'm moving back to Carson though (: which makes me really glad ! Carson Jr. High is a great school ! If you're a Carson student don't forget that " Once a cougar, always a cougar! " !
I'm already frustrated by administration incompetence. Nobody ever calls me back or responds to my emails. The website has tons of broken links and references to obsolete info. My son seems to like his teachers, and that about sums it up. The Robotics Club never runs because of attendance. Well, attendance is lacking because they never run the club meetings. It's not promoted or advertised on the website. I'm finding Common Core UNDERwhelming and dumbed down; and, I don't believe that our kids will progress adequately. My son told me that half of the 7th grade year will be spent on review. What??? Seriously? There is never ever any homework. So, no learning then? Awesome. I hate and resent that our financial position forced us to move into town and pull my son from an A rated charter school and put him into the worst performing public middle school in Mesa. I've tried giving this school a chance but when you don't fix the easy stuff, well...... How can we improve this school? For starters, fix the website that I've asked to be updated since July and return calls and emails. Also, put the parent FIAT meetings on the calendar so parents know when they can attend the meetings.
wow.... well, I use to be a teacher before and one thing for sure we can not really have any control on their foul launguage... that comes from home! And I am about to move into the area and my son does need special education... just a little consern because I want him to learn and not b behind and let him slide. I can not rate it but will b back to give my feed back when he is really in. Wish me luck!!
My son goes to this school and I am looking for something else for him. He is failing all 6 classes. His teachers are helpful. They send home his 'missing' assignments 2 and 3 times, but no one enforces any penalties when he doesn't do the work. I have asked for an alternative or some sort of help with my son who just refused to do his work. Counselors can not help and informed me that they have no retention program. He can fail all classes and never get held back. How is this going to help him next year? They are also not at liberty to recommend alternative programs or schools. The school wants to keep my tax money right there at the expense of my son's education. If your kid has behavior or learning problems, don't send them here. They just don't care enough to deal with it.
This school is the best it can be. Im a cheerleader at carson right now and most of us are straight A students. There is nothing wrong with the teachers there, their trying their best to teach us everything. But the students that are using foul language and being disrespectful are their own fault or the house they live in. Nothing will go wrong if you send your children there, nothing is wrong cause the teachers are great
I worked at Carson Junior High for ten years and if I would not have moved I would still be there. The staff members there are fantastic. They care not only about the students, parents, but their fellow teachers. Over the ten years I was offered jobs at different junior highs in the area and I stayed at Carson due to the staff members there
Carson is so cool i'm not just sayin that because i go there it just we have great and dedicated teachers that really take the time to talk to us students , they really take the time to get to know us this is my second year at Carson sure there are some dumb students that o dumb things but you can't just judge the school because of those individuals it really is a good school i'm a straight A student and i really like it at carson you should send your children there !!
Last year when my daughter started to attend Carson, she would come home and tell me how hard of a time she was having being a good girl and making good choices. She mentioned the foul language and the fact that being good was just not cool. I have gone over and spoke to her teachers who I really believe are great teachers and they really care about their students, but the problem I believe, is in the poor enforcement of basic rules of conduct. It's just too bad. I would love to be able to support my local schools but my hands are tied on this one.
