Carlson Elementary school is a great school with small classes and dedicated teachers. My children like it much more then Denver Public schools. They feel safe and nurtured. We love the small community feeling.

Beware. If I had to do it all over again, I would never have moved into this town. The schools are horrible. They are obviously suffering from major funding issues. The teacher to student ratio is appalling and the instruction level is seriously lacking. I have removed two kids from the school and placed them elsewhere. Thank goodness Colorado is an open-enrollment state. If you have a choice, do not put your kids here.

Great teachers and a great PTA which work together to try to give our kids as many opportunities to learn and grow as they can.

Carlson is a vital element of a town with a lot of wonderful kids, and a big help even to parents who need the early childhood education it offers. Though Idaho Springs is a small town, Carlson manages to provide science experiences and cultural experiences far beyond the capacity given by its size and bidget, largely through the dedication of talented teachers and parents.

My granddaughter has come to your school since kindergarten. She had a slow star however with the great teachers and staff she has excelled in every subject including personal growth. Thanks to all the great teachers and staff Kathy Van Newhouse
