I lived at Carson from march 1975-June 1975 or 15 months total. It was the best experience of my life. At 15 my parents threw me away. They couldn't handle me so they had me declared incorrigable and away I went. I was treated very well by the Upper Beach staff and recieved life skills for getting along with people and taking responsibility for my action with compassion and love. 1975 was awhile ago but this experience had a huge impact on my life for a very long time. I am 54 now but i can still feel the person who was treated fairly and with respect. It reinforced dignity and a sence of fairness which i know are values everyone needs.

My child attended Carson Valley and unfortunately we were quite disapointed. There were some caring staff however overall it was a GLORIFIED Daycare. There did not seem to be a basic understanding of classroom management, positive reinforcement, verbal praise, transitional cues, prompting etc. Modeling positive behavior and checking in during free play was rarely apparent. The classrooms were poorly supplied and quite noisy and unorganized. Overall- there was a lack of basic early education techniques and it did not feel like a positive environment. After visiting many of the local schools it was drastically apparent how far behind Carson Valley is in providing care for preschool age children.

Our son loves Carson. They have all the programs you'd expect. Inside scoop: They have a great parent association which puts on several events like the fall faire, holiday shopping event, desserts with daddy, pajama night, beginning and end-of-year cookouts at the school, etc. Carson also had a day care program which fits seamlessly with the nursery school 7:30-5, great for working professionals.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
