Excellent school, curriculum, staff and programs. At Carrie Downing, it's all about the students. Thanks Mr. Tim for you and your staff for caring more for my son Nehemiah. When the school district award their schools, your school should be in the top five. Sincerely, Mr. Gordon Biggers

WeI have a daughter who has gone through Carrie Downie and a son who is in his last year this year. We couldn't be more happy with this administration, teachers and support staff! This school really takes the "village" to raise a child approach to teaching. Everyone is soo helpful, the schools PTA has a ton of activities for the kids & If you ever have a concern it will be addressed immediately. Sad to see our time here winding down.

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.

Love this school and the way your child is put first...my child has a learning disability and she has so many champions in her corner....also the weekly videos are a fun way to see what's going on in their day!!! I love it. All 5 of my kids have gone here, and I have never regretted a single moment of my choice!!!
