We moved here for the schools and have only heard positive things about them. My daughters have had good experiences with their teachers and kids in their classes. I love the bus system.
I strongly dislike the school (and district?) policy of having one short 15 minute recess per day. Our last school had three short recesses and the kids were much happier after school and I think they retained more. Thankfully we have calm daughters and will move before our active, squirmy sons start school.
Smoky Row is one of the best elementary school that I have ever seen. Dedicated and loving teachers and staffs who truly care about students and their family. Smoky Row continues to provide great challenges to students so that they can achieve higher. In 2012, the school has received recognition as a National Blue Ribbon school. My child started as a shy and cautious Kindergartener at Smoky Row. Now she is an active and very involved 4th grader. All her friends are wonderful and their parents are very involved in school. If you are looking for nothing but the best in your child's elementary school, I strongly recommend Smoky Row Elementary. Go Rockets!!
Smoky Row is one of the best schools in Carmel, if not the best. We transferred from a private school that did not even have a third to office with Smoky Row does. Plus the principal, teachers and parents for the most part are wonderful.
