Kay Carl is a great school filled with staff willing to put in the extra effort to help out their students. The principal, Mrs. Swann, is always there, is very closely involved with the students and knows the children by name. She plays games at lunchtime, helps out all over the school and doesn't hide in her office to only make sporadic appearances at assemblies and large functions. The front office staff, Ms. Nyesha, Ms. Elaine and the other ladies are always friendly and helpful and are great and fielding a variety of questions they get asked and the kids love them. The teachers are amazing, they work together as a team to do what is best for students and will help out with children that aren't even in their class. For years, Ms. Bartlotta has stopped my kids in the hall to ask them what book they are reading and encourage them to come check out a book from her classroom library and none of them have ever been her student. These teachers truly care about the kids.They are encouraging, patient, and love teaching and have never forgotten that kids also need to have fun. There are numerous school events, activities, sports and after school clubs to make sure children are included and active in the school. If you are looking for a great public school, you have definitely found it here!

I am very happy with our school. the teachers and Principal are all great. however they can do some changes at the front office. unfriendly staff member whispers as certain parents walk in and never takes the time to say hello, good morning, or even how can I help you ? sometimes she can't even be found.

This is my child's 3rd year at this school. There are many exciting and positive changes this year due to our new Principal. The lunch room is now run so efficient and is a fun environment for the kids. Kiss-N-Go drop off and pick up is a much safer solution for the children. It would work better if parents followed the rules and traffic laws. There are many great teachers and the office staff is wonderful to deal with.

Principal is mia 98% of the time. Assistant principal well talk around and around and around you until you've forgotten why you even called. I've been told that this used to be a very good school. But it isn't any more. Teachers seem beaten down. The p.e. coaches run threes school. Two words....zone variance.

Okay school. My son had a sub teacher most of his 1st grade year. Great teacher for 2nd and 3rd (same teacher) and 4th grade the teacher was verbally abusive to the kids. Now in his last year, new teacher with the school that is retiring.

This has been the worst experience I could have imagined for my children. My daughter didn't have a teacher for the second half of first grade and no one even told us the teacher had gone out on disability. They had numerous subs who didn't know what they were doing which caused my daughter to go from all A's to an F in math. We are still working to get her back on track and will be for the rest of second grade. At least we did get the best second grade teacher. And if they consider having the kids pick up trash as a great P.E. program then there are major problems at this school. I can't wait to get my children out of this school next year.

I have grandchildren in this school and the experience has been very upsetting and frustrating. My granddaughter went from an A student to an F student in math in one short year. Her teacher was out sick most of the time and the subs obviously did not do their job. Look at the test scores and stats for this school compared to the state average, I believe it says it all. I do not feel the children are getting a good education here and will be happy to see them go to another school next year.

This is my grandson's second year at Kay Carl and I am very happy with the treatment he receives from the faculty and many of them call him by name. He loves school and his teachers. The PTA is great in sponsoring affordable fundraisers and programs to keep the kids involved. I have a choice to place him in a private school but prefer Kay Carl.

We have had nothing but problems with this school since the prior principal left and took all the great teachers with her. This past year, my sons 5th grade class had no teacher for 1/2 a year, only a mean substitute who always threatened to leave them because he wasn't paid enough for the "bother."

My children have been attending Kay Carl for 3 years now and I am nothing but pleased. The school is always focused on academic improvements. They have afterschool fitness programs with a superstar PE teacher. Parent involvement is amazing and the PTA sponsors many reading programs, teacher training and I could just go on. A Plus to the staff and Principal.
