Carters Valley Elementary School has some really good teachers but is poorly led and under resourced. There is very few opportunities for parent involvement.

The prinicipal and teachers at this school do a wonderful job with the students even though in a rural community with limited monies. They are very involved with the students. My daughter is in second grade and has absolutely excelled because of the caring attitudes of the teachers and staff of this school.

Great school. My son has attended since Kindergarten and will be in 5th grade next year. The staff is wonderful, they are always there if you have a problem or need help. Couldn't ask for a better school and staff.

This school is very invovled they make sure that the kids are their number one concern. From the pricipal Mrs. Webb to all the other staff they work hard with the children and for the children. They are also very invovled in the community. My son has attended there since he was in the first grade and now is in the third grade.

My daughter loves this school. The teachers are great and communicate well with parents. Mr. Childress plays an active role in their education. I see him opening the doors for students to welcome them as well as dressing up to make the kids laugh. His involvement has helped my daughter's learning experience. The school is very clean and in excellent condition. I would not send my daughter anywhere else.

My daughter loves this school. The staff works very hard to help the students reach their full potential. If there is ever a problem it is worked out immediately. The school is very clean. The meals are great. It is also the best school in the county.
