My children have attended CAFE for three years now and we have been pleased with their teachers and the quality of instruction. They look forward to school each day. Parents are welcomed at the school and given many choices to volunteer in their children's classrooms. My kindergardener started the SPLASH program this year and loves it! We had several other options for elementary school in 2013-2014 but decided to stay at Furr because its a great school. I highly recommend CAFE.
CAFE is by far one of the best schools that I have seen in the county. The teachers here care more about the students than anything I ever received while in school. The administrative staff is also very knowledgeable of what the students need. They really do know the children 'personally' and put aside so much to be sure that ALL of our students get the best education possible. I have been active with the PTO each year and have truly seen what our school (teachers & administrators) sacrifice for our children, how much they care for our children, and most of all how much they love our children. It's a true source of pride to me that now since I have moved to the middle school PTSO we are always looking for ways to "do it like CAFE". I truly love our school and hate to be "graduating" next year; however, rest assured that there are still lots of parents at CAFE who will continue to work hard to make CAFE the best it has ever been, and they would certainly welcome you as a volunteer!
Furr is an incredible school with a strong teaching staff dedicated to serve the students. They are constantly dedicating their time and devotion to giving their best to the kids.
Talented & Caring teachers. Wonderful administration. Clean & beautiful campus with modern & fun playgrounds. Best school in Cabarrus County!
Both of my children have attended the school from kindergarten through 5th grade. I have one child who is in AIG classes and one that is in E.C. and has an i.e.p. I can tell you that they have been amazing on both ends of the spectrum and very willing to work with us to help my children acheive the most they can achieve. The teachers truly love their kids and it shows and the kids truly love their teachers. We feel very blessed to have found the school.
Wonderful staff! My daughter looks forward to going to school each day! Mrs. Martin is the best!
Great teachers, school, and principal. My daughter has learned a lot and done very well here.
We came from a Hallmark Hall of Fame school in Ohio that was excellent, top to bottom. Furr is just as good, and we have been very happy here for the last 4 years. All (4) of our children have enjoyed it and are thriving there now and at Winkler and Robinson. The AIG program is well run, the Title 1 program is excellent as well, all in all, a GREAT school!
My daughter attended a private school in the area for K-4 and K-5, due to her birthday being in Sept, so she could start ontime. She did okay, but she had to sit at the front of the class with the "troublemakers" because she had a hard time finishing her work due to her ADD, she transferred to Furr this year, and has only had 2 below the line days, both of which were before she got on her current ADD meds. Her teacher is wonderful, she is a lot happier here then she was at the private school.
We have been very impressed with all of the teachers and family involvement in this school. I have two children attending and have been here for the last five years. The experience of the staff and the fresh ideas brought by younger teachers is unsurpassed. We are very excited about another school year at Carl A. Furr!
Before attending Furr, my daughter had poor academic performance and a host of behavior problems. She has been at Furr for 2 years now and has really turned things around. No behavior problems and she has become a B+/A student. I attribute her success at Furr not only to her efforts, but the staff as well. Carl A Furr Elementary is a fantastic school!
Carl A. Furr has been very proactive about meeting the needs of students at every level. My kids have always gotten the instruction they need, whether it is extra help or an extra challenge. Every teacher I have met has been very caring, and the principal is a wonderful leader for teachers, kids and parents.
I think we have the best staff I have ever seen! I have two older children and we have been in several other schools, so I do have something to compare Furr with.
Great administration, teachers and families! Parents are always welcome any time of the day. Great PTO that plans fun activities throughout the year.
phenomenal staff of caring, committed, and supportive people who LOVE what they do, are excellent at it, and bring out the best in our kids
very community and family oriented, Great staff, PTO and teachers that make a difference everyday!
