Carstens accepts and educates all students. Students who have academic issues or behavior problems aren't 'sent elsewhere' after the school secures funding for their presence. Rather, ALL students are supported and guided. The school's MEAP scores are fabulous. The school has been recognized as a high-performing school by The Skillman Foundation. The school was ranked by the Mich. Dept. of Education as the #2 Title One school in the state for improving school achievement. (#1 was a high school.) Carstens children are respected and valued. The children have wonderful experiences both in and out of the school such as monthly field trips. The principal is the best. The teachers are the best. The students (and their learning) is what matters. It's not a business. It's not about selection. It's about providing EVERY child with a quality education.

Carstens Elementary School is indeed the finest learning establishment in the entire nation in which it is an ideal model of excellence that all schools urban/suburban should pattern themselves after. What makes this institution so unique is that it implements programs that are not only academically/socially enriching such as After School Tutorial, Saturday School and Year Around Parent University, it also facilitates as an ongoing community center sponsoring such activities as City of Detroit Recreation, Chess Club, Academic Games, Junior Achievement, Soccer, Metro Detroit Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts as well as the Junior League just to name a few. Carstens also has a year around Parenting Education University whuich was nationally recognized by John Hopkins University in the Partnerships that Work 2006. Our parent center provides on going emergency services and outreach provisions for families in and around the Carstens School and it's surrounding community. Monthly Field Trips are always constant!
