It's great in overall areas. Lots of parent involvement in the school and definitely with the education.

This is a great school. Mrs. Hollingsworth is a professional and very loving person. My daughter has Mrs. Gentry for kindergarten who is another professional who loves her students.

Excellent in the both hard wear and soft wear. We the most dated equipment in computer lab. students have regular arts and music programs. The principle has a great leadership, and teachers are proud of their school and the teaching career. Parents' participation in the classroom and activities are high. There are returning families for three generations. We are proud of our school, Carve, in San Marino.

An outstanding school with great principal, teachers, and staff. PTA is second to none and the students (and the students' parents) thrive to achieve their goals in life here. One word sums it all up... AWESOME.

If you are considering sending your child to Carver, you will need to dedicate a major part of your life to his/her education because everyone in the school system does. This includes the principal, the teachers and the parents. If you value education, this is THE best elementary school that you will find ... PERIOD ... !!!

This is an amazing school. The teachers are so commited to the children and parent participation is always forthcoming. The teachers make the classes interesting and fun without losing sight of the academics. They do have a lot of homework but my child seems to cope with this ok. They headmistress is very hands on and can be seen constantly walking around classes, she knows all of the children and seems genuinely interested in each and every one. My son is in first grade and his experience of Kindergarten was fabulous and prepared him well. His 1st grade teacher is inspiring and interesting but she also has clear discipline. The school is one-of-a-kind!

Carver is an exceptional elementary school and absolutely one of the best of the nation. The students are fortunate to enjoy music, art , science and P.E. classes in addition to their core subjects. They have music programs that students 'audtion' for. Their performances are very impressive and outstanding. A direct result from the exceptional help from music/program director, parents and volunteers. The school is heavy into parent help and fundraising. In turn by doing so, it provides the students unlimited potential for learning in any manner that a child can. No child is left behind at Carver. Their test scores prove it all. The principal, teachers, administrative staff, parent volunteers and the PTA contribute their time and efforts so the child will have the most memorable and unforgettable grade school experience.

Carver is a very unique school. First, the principal Liz Hollingsworth is outstanding. All you have to do is talk to her and walk around the school with her and you will quickly see that the kids and the school are her passion. Second, the teachers are fantastic. All the teachers that we have had, 13 of them, have been 9's or 10's. They are very caring, considerate and will help your child when he or she needs it. Third, parent involvement in the school is like no other. Whether it is financial support, classroom support, or after-school activities, these parents generously donate and volunteer their time even when they don't have time. The Carver PTA has generated a wonderful cohesiveness among the parents, faculty and administration. It is no wonder Carver was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School and a California Distinguished School.
