Alice Carlson is a great school, all of the teachers are nice and helpful to everyone, for example, I need help and the teachers will try their hardest to explan what the student doesnt get, or if i need help finding a teacher or my class the will help you find what you are looking for. I like that they teach social skills and some schools don't, also you get to have at least 1 specials a day! I think my school can improve by have science more in grades k-4 and maybe doing some more hands-on projects. Also having more media time like 1h instead on 45m.
The staff of Alice Carlson has created a place where students belong to a community of learners. My granddaughter has learned independence and accountability. She has been encouraged to grow and learn. The hands-on philosophy inherent in applied learning has encouraged students to be confident and thoughtful. The garden behind the school provides a safe place for students to learn during the school day and play after school -- In May, first-graders formed a butterfly club and chased butterflies every afternoon after school -- with all butterflies released before they left for home. My granddaughter's teacher was firm and supportive; she expected good behavior from her students so that no one would interfere with learning in the classroom. The halls of the school are seldom empty: students may be doing group-work around a table, or two kindergartners may be taking a message to the office, or a teacher may be giving a student extra help. All are focused; I have yet to see a behavior problem in the halls. The support staff is also hands-on and helpful, from expecting good behavior in the cafeteria to making announcements as cheerful and interesting as possible.
We love this school. The teachers and administration are amazing. Our son attended another Fort Worth school that is highly rated nearby and Alice Carlson has blown them out of the water. Public schools teach specifically to the TAKS test, this school teaches far beyond tests. We are so thankful we were accepted here!!!!
We were so thankful when our kindergardener got into this school. We had heard all great things. We have been very pleased with the environment, the education, the teachers, and activities. They make a plan for each student and my daughter's teacher Mr. Joey is excellent. He's very focused on the kids' education.
My little sister is in kindergarten, the leaps she has made since the beginning of the year are exceptional!

Alice Carlson is wonderful. The teachers are loving and supportive, and they seem to love teaching. My kids are learning so much and having fun doing it. Go Carlson!
The best thing a school can be known for is the ability to let the kids think, understand and rationalize the possibilities of a problem or situation. So many parents get caught up in numbers to define who their child is, they forget it's what they remember and can apply it to their lives. Applied learning may not be a campus for all students but for those that can think outside the box and for themselves, this is a school they can appreciate.
ACALC empowers children to take control of their learning by exploring different strategies to understand new material. The children learn by doing hands-on work that cements basic concepts. Students at ALALC love learning, and it shows in their faces when you walk down the hallway.
Great teachers, diverse student population, interesting and challenging curriculum, nice community of involved parents.
