Carter Middle School is teaching our kids how to think for themselves. Their homework often has questions that students need to use reference materials, including computers, to find the answers. This will prove to be a great asset as they move toward college.
George R. Carter Middle School is a great school, I have grandkids that attend there as so did my children.
My son has attended Carter for five months now and so far I am pleased. The teachers seem very interested in the kids and are pretty accessible. Progress reports (for 5th graders, at least) are sent home weekly and they also use a website where you can monitor your child's grades and homework assignments. They seem to have a great band program and many other extra curricular activities and after school clubs - from writing to Webkinz. My biggest concern is that middle school starts in the fifth grade and, although they are pretty segregated from the older kids and the faculty seems to understand that fifth grade is light years from seventh grade maturity-wise, it is a difficult transition for kids that are slower to mature. My son has always gotten A's and B's but has really struggled this year due to having to juggle multiple teachers, assignments, new routines, etc. I think he would have handled it better if he were a year older but the teachers have been great in working with him and us to get him back on track.
Carter has a great faculty and is always putting the kids first. They care about their education. They also keep the parents involved and up to date on information.
