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.
The staff is helpfull, the teachers are average and the principal below average. They used to have a 9 grading.
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.
i dont like this school.they are trying give a hard time.i hate school staff..they are not usa president
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.
My third child is now enrolled in Carney Elementary. The teachers, staff and administrators are a group of hard working, dedicated professionals. We are extremely happy with the school and would highly recommend Carney Elementary to anyone!
Carney is a great school, that makes every child feel encoraged to learn.
The teachers can't explain easy concepts and there are a lot of subs. The director doesn't return calls.
THe teachers are wonderful and truly care about their students. The PTA is so involved. I am so pleased my daughter goes there!!!
This is our second year at Carney and we couldn't be more pleased! My daughter was thrilled to start school again this week. The teachers and staff are truly dedicated and their hard work is apparent in the student achievement. We couldn't be happier!
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.
