Carriage is a wonderful school. My oldest has been going there since Kinder and is now in the 6th grade. He has received an excellent education and loves going to school every day. His younger brother is in 2nd grade at Carriage now and also loves going to school. Carriage has the most dedicated and carring teachers as well as warm and friendly office staff. The principal is very aproachable and involved with the students. They all love her. The campus is extremely clean and safe, there is only one way in and out during school hours, all other entrances get locked. I do not know of any other school in this area that offers anywhere near the amount of programs that Carriage offers.
The emphasis on the Arts and the encouragement students receive to explore their artistic/creative sides
i always heard great things about this Carriage and tried to transfer our son to it several times with no luck. we are lucky this year in that there was room for our child. he was assigned to a wonderful teacher who communicates extremely well, genuinely loves her students and has a passion for teaching. we are very happy to be here! they have a new principal that has the same qualities.
Parent involvement is above average even being overflow school Performing arts program excellent gives children great confidence.Visual and Performing Arts School emphasizes Great Principal very involved with children and parents
Parent involvement is above average. Availability of music and art also above average. Quality of academic programs is about average. Disappointed that the teachers' philosophies on learning all varied considerably between each other. Experienced only one wonderful, caring, concerned teacher out of the many teachers throughout the years here.
Great Principal very involved with children and parents. Very clean campus. Performing arts program excellent gives chidren great confidence. Teachers are great especially kindergarten no 'bad' ones. My daughter was team taught in kindergarten and I questioned it in the beginning of the school year, but we couldn't have had a better experience. My daughter is going to loop with one of her kindergarten teachers and she is so excited about the upcoming school year.
Excellent Academic Programs. Visual and Performing Arts School emphasizes Art through weekly Art Classes by a dedicted Art Instructor and Performances by all grade levels at least once a year. Computer literacy is also valued with weekly visits to a dedicated computer lab. Great parental involvement.
Beautiful brick campus of this overflow school which offers performing arts opportunities.
