Carmichael Elementary School5

My son is 4 years old & he started going to preschool here in Carmichael when he turned 3. He's in the peer program (not special ed program). Even though he's advance, he doesn't get bored or loose interest because his teachers Ms. Bonnie & Ms. Annie provide something new to learn for the kids. Both the special ed program kids & the peer program kids have their own goal to achieve in learning, and the teachers together with special therapist (speech & occupational therapist) help one another in providing a high quality of education to the kids even if it is only 2 hrs a day. The time constraint is not issue because the teachers & staff are the best...
This school seems to exceed all expectations. I have yet to meet a teacher there that does not go above and beyond for their students. The Reading curriculum has been modified so that it is individualized for each student so if they are behind they can catch up or if they excel they can. Smart boards are in every class. There are two brand new computer labs for the students. The principal is very involved with all the classrooms. They send some older students to a leadership conference in D.C. Plus there is a free after school program with several extracurricular activities. As a parent I am proud to send my children here
We took our daughter out of due to the repeated problems with school and teacher. She actually lost knowledge instead of gaining. She came from a school in the Mortheast to this program which is only able to be funded for 2 hours a day unless you have a learning disorder. The lack of supervision and teaching led to us giving up on sending her there. We would strongly suggest another kindergarden program with more seasoned teachers if you are looking for results.
