Posted June 25, 2014

I have put 4 children through this wonderful school and now 4 of my Grandchildren will go through. Throughout the years the one constant stand out is the trachers who do a great job. I am proud that my family has walked the halls of Caravel Middle School. BTW the gym NOT SO MUCH! Hard to enjoy the whole basketball games through those BEAMS! Just saying.


Posted May 22, 2009

Our family just moved here at the beginning of the school year, and my son loves Caravel Middle School. I have found that the parental and teacher involvement is astounding! I feel that he is getting a great education, and I say this because I am able to compare. I'm uncertain why the overall score for this school is a 3...I believe it should be at least a 7. My son is very happy to go school everyday, so that is reason enough for me.

As a parent, I think that my children have enjoyed an excellent education in this district and this school. I think that the safe, inspiring, & caring attitude of the staff & administration of the district as a whole, creates a strong bond among parents and staff. The quality of education extended to the students is second to none. Peter P.
