Thomas C. Cario Middle School 5

As in any school there are good things and less than perfect things. Fortunately, at Cario the good ones outweigh by far the bad ones. Teaching nowadays is more challenging than in the past and Cario faculty does a great keeping their students engaged. There are regular classes and an honor class, the difference is that a higher standard is expected from honor students. The school provides the means for the students who want -and have the drive- to succeed. Every time I approached teachers to learn about my daughter’s progress they provided detailed information and useful tips on how we could support her and reinforce what the school was teaching her. This is what makes Cario a great school.

If you are not in honors classes they have no regard for your child. They don't take the time to get to know the students. I have had three children attend this school and am ready to move my last child into a new school. There are a handful of good teachers but for every good teacher there is a bad teacher. They don't use common sense.

Really good teachers who care about their students. They work very hard to motivate and engage their students.

This has been the MOST frustrating experience. We have had the worst experience here, from teachers that are not understood, to bullies, to a school who for some strange reason is unwilling to move a child from an honors class even when they are FAILING. Absolutely just go someplace else.

Student's test scores are very high. Cario is very safe. Students are really nice and there are always new students, so if you are going to be a new student, it's not a big deal. Teachers seem to really care about the students.

My daughter attended all 3 years at Cario, was in all honors and excelled in Band. She loved Cario; which made an easy transition for her in to Wando HS. Cario's curriculum prepares students to the next level -- high school.

We have visited several schools in the Mt. Pleasant area and feel that Cario will be a great fit for our family. The faculty and staff were very informative and helpful.
