I started school at Carson St in 1946. I had a fantastic Teacher, Named Mrs. Strong. My memories of her Stayed with me all these years. She was a kind teacher to a messed up kid.( me). Carson St School has always been a great school. Harold Young. Class of 53.
this is an amazing elementary school. when i went there, Mr.Leon was the principal, and he did a great job. The GATE program is amazing. i even had some friends who said that their Speech Development classes were excellent. the teachers really care about the students. Of course, there was a period when they had to rebuild the playground, but it was fixed and the newer playground is pretty awesome. I'm a 7th grader now, and going to this school really helped. i learned a lot. Plus, when i was there, this was a distinguished school!
carson is a wonderful school and their food is very healthy and taste great! their principle is very nice and their teachers are very kind...their teachers are very smart and the kids do very well on their test thanks to the teacher's cooperation. the teachers are so nice when it comes to test.
The teachers at Carson Street School work together to make sure students are successful and enjoy learning!
This is a great school,starting with our principal Mr.Leon,He is very approachable he has an open door policy ,and welcomes suggestions our office staff are great,our teachers are the best with maybe 1or2 exceptions our yard supervision is excellent and our boys and girls club is really helpful
Right before my child started kindergarten here, I worried if she was going to be academically stimulated and be challenged according to what she is capable of. Luckily, she was put under a very nice, patient, and absolutely well respected and highly praised teacher (Ms. Amemiya); and so I felt comfortable my child was going to have a good education. I think that for a child to succeed in school also depends on how well a teacher can relate to her pupils. I particularly thank Ms. Amemiya for a wonderful job. Well done.
Great teachers, students, and staff. This school provides teachers with a plethora of resources that enables them to provide a high quality education. Students get to participate in art, physical education, music, computer lab, and more.
Carson Street Elementary School when I attended there in 1985 was a great school. As a parent I do not think that my child is getting enough help. I am very disappointed in this school. My daughter is in the 3rd grade now. This year her teacher seems interested in her learning. But, for the 1st and 2nd grade teachers I do not think they were. The level of parent involvement is very low. Availabitlity of music, none I am aware of. Art is excellent. Sports, great, but no grass for the children. Overall, Unfortunately I am looking for an alternate school for my child to attend. Hopefully, this helps others in their decision for there child.
My daughter has been attending Carson Street School since preschool. The year-round track system did take some getting use to, but the benefit of smaller class size is worth it. She has blossomed into an over-achiever and all her teachers have been great! Each and every one of them took the time to nurture her curiosity for learning! We contemplated putting her in a private school, but the average class size is thirty, try getting one-on-one time with a class that size! Carson Street School has a lot to be proud of - The teachers are great, computer lab is using up to date software, and the school grounds are clean and well maintained.
I am a parent, PTA and Council member of this school. What this school needs are parents that are actively involded in the education of the children. Carson Elementary is a great school which has various programs to support the needs of children. Tutoring is available! Their is adequate parking next to the school in the library and park, the concern with the ticketing is a City of Carson issue and not a school issue. The school only enforces policy and regulations for the safety of the children.
My grand daughter has difficulties adjusting to a loosey-goosey free run of the classroom by the students. When last year in the 2nd grade her experiences in the honors classroom was competively rigorous.Administration is non-responsive to corrective action, asst. superintendent says we'll document. It took 6 months for nothing.
In my opinion the safety and security of all students should be top priority, this school has no loading and unloading zones for students and furthermore if you drop off your child in front of the school you will be ticketed by the sheriff.
President Bush once stated 'that no child will be left behind' and tutoring would be available. Well at this school no tutoring is available when I inquired at the office the personell did nothing to help us. Very very poor indeed.
I don't like the year round track system and if you ever run into a problem with a teacher the staff does very little to help.
