All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Carrie Downie is a place where your student will feel part of a community. We as a staff are a family and we strive to keep our students challenged, safe, and happy each and everyday! Our building may look old, however, the practices that we are using to educate our students is revolutionary. Technology is no longer a novelty activity. Students at every grade level are immersed in computer science to research, create, and explore the world beyond their classroom walls.
