I love this school. I am very pleased with the academic curriculum and the quality of the staff members. I am so glad I have my son in this school. I cannot wait for my little one to start.

My children attended Little Carver since Kindergarten and I have to say that it was an amazing experience. All their teachers were dedicated to their education and pushed to get the best of them. Administration was always helpful when I had a concern. Best PTA Of any school, supportive of the teachers and always has an open door policy to comments and suggestions. Not enough words to thank everyone involved in my kids' education. Forever grateful Little Carver!!!

My son had an amazing school year as a Kindergarten student last year....Ms. Miller is definitely the best teacher there...there are former students that are over 30 years old that still come by to say HI to her...she is truly a gift of god.

With the controlled choice admission procedures in Coral Gables, Little Carver is the only real option. The parental community is very involved and committed to improving the school but it feels like much of our efforts are futile. Some of the teachers are amazing, some not so much (as with any school), the neighborhood is sketchy, and the educational standards are mediocre (unless your child is in gifted, then it is phenomenal). It used to be an A school so not sure why it has been scoring so low for the past couple of years, but families will continue to leave until the school is able to turn around without depending exclusively on the efforts of committed parents.

We love Little Carver! The school administration is open and warm. The teachers are receptive and kind. The gifted teacher is phenomenal. The teachers provide out of the box learning opportunities for the children. If ever in doubt- stop by the school and see for yourself. It's a small- but wonderful learning environment. Each child is treated as an individual- the homework is suitable, and not overdone.

I love this school. My children's grades have improved immensely since moving to this school. I was very hesitant to move my children in the middle of the school year, but have been pleasantly surprised. The teachers are dedicated & really tune into the children. Thank you George W. Carver for a wonderful learning experience for our children!

My daughter has been at this school for 4 years now and we absolutely love it. It is a close-knit school, the teachers/administrators/staff members are always readily available and the kids are motivated to excel. I wouldn't have her anywhere else. Julissa

My child loves this school. We relocated from St. Louis and Lil Carver was an absolute blessing. Excellent Staff and Curriculum. One of the best in the nation.

My daughter is in kindergarten. Dozens of people working for 'Little' Carver Elementary have gone the extra mile to help my daughter. Safety is highly important to the staff. I could not ask for better teachers. Her teachers are tough and fair, two qualities I admire. As for the education my daughter is receiving from her teachers: excellent. The home learning sent is a mirror image of what they learn in class. The only reason I gave a 'don't know' rating for principal leadership and parent involvement is due to the lack of time I spend at the school. Based on what a great experience my daughter has at Carver, principal leadership and parent involvement is high but because my work schedule I am not able to spend enough time getting to know all aspects my daughter is benefiting from. What little I have seen has be terrific and above average.

This school provides students with a ' easy to learn ' atmosphere in which parents are strongly encouraged to participate. I wouldn't have my children attend any other school. In fact, my sister and I both attended this school.
