I can't believe there hasn't been a review in so long! Carver is awesome! It's small, tight knit community of teachers and parents really make it a special place. Mrs. Forrester is a fabulous principle you can relate to and approach with any issue. We feel so lucky to be a part of this school.
Carver is a fantastic school! As a teacher, I recognize how lucky my own children are to attend this school and I would choose Carver over ANY school in the LBUSD. A small neighborhood school, strong academics, and caring teachers make this the school of choice.
Carver is a great school with great teachers and principal. So glad my kids are at Carver!
I cannot say enough positive things about this school. I love the small, family atmosphere and the ability to get to know the other students and parents. Carver has fantastic teachers that truly care about their students. Lots of parental involvement and our new principal is friendly and approachable. My two children have really excelled here. This year we received the CA Distinguished School Award. Carver is a great place to learn and grow!
The wonderful caring teachers, active parent support and administration and staff all have the best interest of each student in their sites.
My daughter is a 1st grader at Carver and it has been another amazing year there. I love the teacher's I love the classroom sizes! Too bad that next year 2nd grade will have to increase but i'm sure the school will handle it. When I hear parents who are looking for a school I always recmomend Carver Elem!
My child is currently a 3rd grade student at Carver. We've absolutely loved this school, its learning environment, and my daughter's teachers. Curriculum is strong, standards-based, and enriching for students. My daughter has experienced many rewarding activities that are unique to Carver. I won't be surprised when Carver is awarded Distinguished School this year!
Carver provides students with a challenging curriculum and postive atmosphere. The majority of the teachers have their Master's Degree and are continuing their education at the nearby university, taking courses to keep them current on various strategies and topics in teaching. Teachers at Carver are professional and care about all the students.
Carver is okay, but I wish I could have kept my child at Lowell. I find my child not being challenged enough, & not given enough homework. I'm still up in the air about him returning in the fall. He has also come home upset about fights in the bathrooms & the older kids kissing, I am assuming it's the older kids but it is upsetting considering this is a K-5 school.
This is our second year at Carver. I have a child in Kindergarten and 1st grade. I was concerned about sending my children to a public school after being at a private religious pre-school. I have to say that Carver has been a truly wonderful experience. My children's expereinces so far have been very positive and have pushed them to challenge themselves. The Kindergarten staff is so loving and caring. They have truly helped to re-inforce our education foundation. I could not have asked for a better school.
We are finishing up our first year at Carver (1st Grade) and we have loved it! It really is a community (but without the cliques), as there is huge parental involvement and everyone helps out. The PTA is extremely active and effective. The school is up to date, safe, and clean. They get out at 2:10 but there is free supervised play until 3:30 everyday and also in the mornings. My daughter's teacher is so kind and understanding, and she works VERY hard inside and outside the classroom, as do all of the teachers. I really value how she works with every childs individual needs and levels, helping the slower ones and challenging the higher ones. Carver is working very hard to maintain their high score and we have never had a problem there. I would highly recommend it.
This is our first year at Carver and I have to say that we love it. My son started Kindergarten and looks forward to going to school everyday. The entire staff, teachers and administration make you you feel so welcome the minute you walk on to the campus. I highly recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a warm caring environment with challenging and rewarding academics. We feel so blessed that this is our neighborhood school and our child can experience this wonderful environment.
My three girls all went to Carver. There is a helpful, friendly atmosphere and the PTA is wonderful. They provide lots of resources for children who need help. The teachers, principals and nurse have been wonderful.
My son started Kindergarten this Fall and loves it. We are very impressed with the Kindergarten team, everyone is so caring and loving - especially Mrs. Jarzomb we love her. Keep up the great work.
My son is in 5th grade this year at Carver. He has had quality teachers through out his years at Carver. My son has some anxiety issues and all of his teachers have been so caring and supportive to him. I will miss Carver as we go into the 6th grade next year.
Carver has a half-day Kindergarten, which we love, and the Kindergarten team is *amazing*. We wondered if our daughter (DD) would be challenged and we are so happy that they do reading at the child s pace. DD was on the verge of reading when she started school and in two months she started reading to me! She is writing sentences and loves going to school everyday. The homework is a bit overwhelming, though. We are very happy at Carver!
Carver Elementary provides students with the highest quality education. The teachers truly treat each child as an individual and really care about the child's success. The kindergarten team is amazing. The children have so much fun they don't even realize they are learning. I have had all three of my children at Carver and I would recommend this school to any family in the district.
I'm proud to have my children at Carver. The principal, teachers, staff and parents show great concern for a healthy learning environment. It's great to have such an outstanding school right here in our own neighborhood.
Both of my boys attend Carver as I did as a girl. The teachers and principal are VERY involved with the students as individuals. I receive constant feedback from both of my boys' teachers. My boys are cared for and encouraged every step of the way! Carver Elementary is a Five Star school!
