As a parent of CES students I have to say I love this school. We have such a connection with everyone in the office, our teachers and the IEP team. You can tell they truly care about the success of their students. The PTA does an amazing job of supporting teachers and helping new parents navigate the school environment. There is always something happening that has a positive effect on student life at the school. Keep up the great work Cary Elementary!

I have three children attending Cary Elementary this year. This is our first year attending this school and impressed is an understatement. My kids are happy and thriving. The staff sincerely cares about the children and treats them as their own. We just happened to be assigned to this school this year, but I can't imagine them attending anywhere else now. My son has health and behavioral issues that have caused complications at his other school. The staff (including the nurse and administration staff) has embraced him and made sure he is receiving the care he needs. The parents are involved and really make the school and programs great. I just can't say enough about this wonderful school!

This is my son's first year at Cary Elementary. He is in second grade and loves it! Everyday he comes home and tells us about his day with enthusiasm! There is such a positive change in him since he began attending this school. We are looking to buy a house next summer and we want to make sure we stay zoned for this school. The teachers are great and the principal works his tail off! Great school and we couldn't be happier!

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.

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!

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!
