Carney Elementary is a really great school. The school is safe, the teachers are excellent, and the assistant principal and administration seem to really care. We moved here recently and could not be more pleased with Carney Elementary.

I give craney a below average because of the new principal. She is unconcerned for her students and actually is quite rude. the office staff are very unfriendly and curt. No assistance is provided to parents in need.

Had a difficult time getting feedback from teachers on my child's progress. Teachers tend to be on the defensive too much. A new principle this year promised improvement, but so far just talk.

I really love this school and the teachers I've met. I agree that the front office staff is not friendly and warm. They make you feel like you're bothering them when you come in. In response to the parent below who said the principal should work on encouraging parents of all races to be involved in school activities and programs, I have seen first hand how uninvolved parents of ALL races are at Carney. I've attended the general PTA meetings where parents have an open forum to address concerns, and been one of about ten people there. Either the principal or vice principal are always at the meetings and encourage new ideas for parent involvement.

I like the teachers at Carney as they seem geniunely concerned about the students academic achievement. The principal and office staff are very unfriendly. The principal should work on encouraging parents of all races to be involved in school activities and programs since Carney is a diverse school.

Carney is a great school! I love the new Principal & asst Principal and the school is growing by leaps and bounds. The PTA is very dedicated and the parents are very involved. A lot of the teachers are signing up for online grades as well. This is our first year doing online grades, and I love it! I would highly recommend Carney to anyone!!

The new pricipal at Carney is amazing. The love and concern for her students and staff is aparent in all that she does. My oldest child graduated from fifth grade last year and I have four of my other children still attending. I am so proud to be a Carney mom.

It is our first year at Carney and so far I think it is a really good school. The teachers are wonderful and constantly monitor your child to make sure they are were they need to be. I feel like my child is challenged but not so much that she is stressed out and she loves the extracurricular activities provided by the school. Parents are encouraged to volunteer as much as they choose. This to me is wonderful because I like to observe what happens with my child plus I get to help the teacher out so that she has more time with the children. It allows me to see how my child is in class. Overall, I would recommend the school to anyone who wants their child to be in a productive, clean, safe, and happy environment for learning.
