Have 2 kids going to the school. Both have been going since kindergarten. One is now in second grade, the other in fourth. Love how the principal, Ms. Ellsworth and the teachers have really pushed my kids to learn. Their reading and mathematics skills are progressig well and my fourth grader has shown a great interest in science and history.
Very impressed with how my daughter has progressed in her first year there. Lots of homework each week helps us parents keep involved with our child's learning. We have seen her confidence grow throughout the year.
I will give a two thumbs up to the teachers that are excellent there at the school which are ms. Endo and mrs. Gamst they are wonderful. but the receptionist and principle could be better at how they approach the kids with attitude and yelling in their face.
The Principal is the school's downfall as she does not seem to care about the students. There is no communication between the school and parents. Also there is no community involvement. This principal does not wish for parent volunteers, there is no PTO, no site council, no fundraising including simple fundraisers such as box tops... we as parents are convinced she knows someone at the district and is just waiting to retire.
As a former student at Carver,I know first hand the quality of the school.it is a very small school which is a good thing I believe because it allows everyone to come together as one.The education I got there was average and the homework was never that overwhelming.I would have to say that there are other schools in the area that are better,but don't have the same atmosphere at Carver does and I believe always will.
Carver is a poor excuse for a school. With the exception of 1, 1st grade teacher they shun parent volunteers! The home work sent home was ridiculous! The teachers were too busy speaking to the E.S.L. students to get to the regular curriculum leaving my children with three+ hours per night of homework. Children are not safe on the campus.
Teachers are very good, especially Ms. Evans. Is very hard to communicate with parents as most of them do not speak English. I feel some students are held back academically because they have to wait for the non-English speaking kids to catch up. I do not see any parents who don't work during the day which is a lot, help in classrooms but again that would be the language barrier.
Very hard for English students to advance due to waiting for 2nd language kids to catch up. Lice Epidemic since parents can't afford the proper shampoo to get rid of them. Parents do seem very involved but not in a financial way. New principal doesn't seem to have the same affection for the school as Mrs. Shane had. Doesn't do programs for the box tops in the same way so not getting funding like we used too. The teachers are wonderful there but without the support of the school is difficult to give full potential.
The leadership of this school is of the lowest standard. The principal of the shcool does not care for the safety or well being of the student body.
