My son, who is in kindergarten, also attends Carlson. He is flourishing. He is so excited about school and has really become interested in learning his letters and numbers. His writing has improved greatly in just over a month and has learned to recognize and spell several words that he did not know just a month ago. I am sorry the parent who posted on September 9 had such a poor experience and I don't know why no work was sent home because we get some all the time. I feel so grateful that my son as at Carlson.
My Kindergartener attended 3 weeks at Carlson and brought home one piece of work a coloring sheet. I was very disappointed and pulled her as her pre-school sister did more work than her. The Teachers exuse was that she was the only one in the class and not all of the students new how to hold a pencil so how was she supposed to teach. That was her last day at Carlson.
My son attended his first year at Carlson last year. He was in 3rd grade. He will be going back to Carlson as a 4th grader this month. I never got to experience the principal, Mr. Larson that everyone speaks so highly of. I am happy with the school. I loved my son's 3rd grade teacher. She really improved him a lot. I really like the principal that is at Carlson. It seems to be a great school.
My son Jared was in Kindergarten at Carlson this year and we just couldn't be more pleased with the school. I can't think of one bad thing except we are losing our beloved principal, Mr. Larson. He is finally retiring and that is a huge loss. Carlson is a family oriented school and we are all on the same team and that really makes a difference. I would recommend Carlson School to any parent.

Teachers are not as accessible as they should be. Feel as if you are unwelcome while visiting classrooms, though Principal is Wonderful! Open 'pod' classroms are very distracting for students. PTO is very unorganized and doesn't allow parents to help with activities. No supervision at lunchtime recess; lots of fighting and bullying.
My daughter is in her 2nd year at Carslon. The teachers are wonderful and Mr. Larson, the principal, is just amazing. I have never seen a school so involved with one another. It's so easy to feel welcomed and a part of the school 'family'. It's such a positive learning environment for the students. I can't imagine sending my daughter anywhere else!
Our son has attended Carlson School for 3 years now. We have had a completely positive experience with this school. The teachers have all been wonderful & the Principal, Mr. Larson is amazing. He makes the school a fun place to be for everyone because of his attitude.
