The school has a very caring staff. They work as a team and are there for the students. I have a grandson that is a student there.He loves school and looks forward to attending each day. I give the credit for that to his teachers and other staff members that make him feel welcome.

I am very upset with this school. My son has attended this school since 1st grade and is now in the 4th grade. With only a couple months of school left I filled out a paper for a transfer to keep him at the school until the end of the year fearing that putting him in a new school would harm his education. I got a letter in the mail this past Friday stating that my son was denied his transfer with the reason being from a list and not specified. The principal goes by Dr. Hutton but doesn't seem like it because she is in fact the person who chose to deny his transfer. Now all they want people to think is it must be the child or the parent but not in this case. I am a mother who will stand up for my children for anything. The fact that he has had 5 teachers this year would be hard for any child or parent to adjust to. But to just kick a kid out of school for no reason. What a shame on Carr Elementary. Thank God my son will be going to Costner since we have moved. I wanted to wait until the beginning of the new year but in this case it must happen now.

Carr is a great school! The teachers here do a very good job of dealing withmy daughters developmental and educational challenges. The students are very understanding as well with her. All around a good experience.

N.C. schools in general: This no student left behind only applies to the one's that make it a Title 1 school. We did need the change in leadership. Our new principal stepped into a mess. She is working hard to make Carr a better school. My child (3rd grade) has yet to get the extended teaching she needs. The teaching to pass the End Of Grade testing doesn't help. Much of the needed education is looked over then going back to what the EOG has on them. We are involved w/child in school. We help in every way. I do think the school is on an uprise from this time last year. Thank you Mrs. Hutton for your hard work, keep it up.

I have 2 children at this school - 1st grade and 4th grade. There has been a change of command this year with a new principal from outside the area. The former principal was here far too long. She was very comfortable in her position and keeping the 'that's the way things are, have been and will always be' attitude. I am very pleased with the way things are going now. The teachers are caring, attentive and willing to work with you and your child. As a parent, you HAVE to be involved with your child's education. If there is something you are not happy with, SPEAK UP!

I am truly disappointed with the leadership at this school. The bullying my children have had to endure is very disheartning. My children our both honor roll students, despite the amount of terrible things that have taken place over the past few years. We are currently looking to move out of this district, so our children will feel safe while in school. The treatment that I and my children have endured over matters is truly saddening. I would not recommend this school .

Well my opinion has really changed about Carr school. The teachers my kids have now and had last year were wonderful with the exception of one. The kindergarten teachers are the best in the world along with the first grade teachers. My oldest is in 3rd now and has the best teacher, he just loves her to death and he is doing great in her class. The school is very clean inside and out. They are adding new classrooms to help out with over crowding and to better accommodate the children. I am glad that I stayed with Carr School. This is a school that I have recommended to other parents and will cont. to do so.

After two more years at Carr Elementary my opinion has definitely swung to the other side. I am very disappointed with the staff and the treatment both myself and my daughter have received.

I have very high respects for Carr School. My son has attended Carr since he was in kindergarden and is now in the 5th grade. I would recommend this school to any one that is new to the area or just are looking for a great school for their child to attend.

This school has been a great disappointment to me. The slogan 'No child is left behind' isn't true as stated by my childs teacher. Telling us that there are children who she isn't going to hold back because she doesn't think it will help them, instead lets send them on so they can continue to struggle. I believe this school's classroom sizes are to large and the children need smaller classrooms the thrive. Children who have special needs in speech and reading and other area have to share their time with others. They've gotten alot of new teachers who don't have much experience and the older teachers wo really seem like they don't need to teach anymore, plus they talk very harsh to the children and the majority of the staff is very rude. This could be a great school with different leadership I believe.
