My daughter is just wrapping up her Kindergarten year at CES and I have to say I have am VERY pleased with this school. Everyone at this school is so friendly -- I see lots of smiles from teachers, staff and students whenever I walk through the halls. The teachers and staff ALL REALLY CARE about the kids. The principal is very hands-on. He is often helping out at the carpool lane in the mornings and is at every after-school event. Recently at a PTA sponsored BINGO night I saw him emptying the trash when it got full! This is in addition to the time I saw him help install a butterfly garden for the younger kids. The after school. program is run by the teachers, which I love because it allows my daughter to interact with more teachers and students from the school. I really can't think of anything negative to write about. We are so happy with this school.
My first grader loves this school, and we can't wait for his brother to start Kindergarten next year.
Cary Elementary is a wonderful school and a positive learning environment. I have rising 2nd and 4th graders at this school, and they're already looking forward to starting up the year again in August. Great teachers (Mr. Dumas is awesome!) and happy, well-behaved kids.
My kids are so happy here! It is a friendly, bright and encouraging place for kids to learn and the staff (esp. Mrs. Devlin) are amazing! A great place to send your kids if you want them to be excited about learning every day.
Cary Elementary is a great place. We wanted our daughter to go to Kindergarten feeling safe, loved and excited about school. We have experienced nothing but great things and our daughter (our baby girl) is enjoying herself so much. She loves Mrs. Devlin and is very happy to go to school every day. This is a great place and we're very proud of the teachers, staff and principal. They're doing a terrific job!
Super school. Excellent teaching staff. Children are happy and eager to learn. Cary Elementary is a 5 star school. Principal gives a feeling of safety and atmosphere for learning.
Cary Elem. is an amazing place! Coming from CT I didn't know what to expect in a 'Southern school'. To say I was pleased is an understatement. The teachers and staff make every child and parent feel they are welcome. The students know what their expectations are and consistently meet and exceed them. I am overjoyed that my daughter attends Cary Elementary!
The Faculty is what makes the school and every interaction I have ever had as a parent has been answered graciously. My daughter has had nothing but positive experiences and reinforcement since attending Cary Elementary. If you want a good environment and friendly faces, Cary Elementary is a great place to be.
Cary Elem is the best! The teachers rock! When you step inside the building, there is a very warm and loving feeling! Teachers really care about the kids. The cafeteria staff is also extremely friendly. Ann Haily the receptionist is the most amazing person alive! She knows every mom's name as well as all of the kids too! Its a school of excellence! My kids have gone there for the past three yrs and havent once said they didnt want to go to school! They love it there! Its also a very safe environment!
