School is impressive physical structure with great teachers and children. Overall teacher morale is poor which impacts classroom performance but in view of this the teachers still do a great job and would do an even better job if there were more support from the Principal, Asst. Principal, Superintendent of Carroll ISD, and the Board. There just seems to be a lack of leadership from the top down....instead, most of the leadership comes from the bottom up....which it shouldn't.
I got lost picking up my 4 yr old grandson and did not have a phone number to call. I was 20 minutes late and the teachers were very kind about it. The ladies all seemed to be a delightful bunch and seemed very caring too. We just moved here from Arlington TX and I must say Carroll has them outranked already. Arlington PreK is only 3 hrs a day. Carroll is 6 hours and he has done very well with the increase in hours.
We absolutely love this school!! Continue to be impressed by the teachers, the principal, who knows each & every student by name, and the encore teachers- in particular the music program. Health & fitness is also encouraged w/PE 2x per week. The parent involvement is fantastic. This is an incredible school and school district!
I have had a kid in this school for 12 consecutive years. I love it here. Parents can be as involved as they want to be. Stacey Wagnon is wonderful. She makes every kid feel welcome and exceptional. The teachers are hardworking and innovative. I love this school.
Both my daughters went all 5 years to CES with my youngest graduating 4th grade in 2009. The Principal, Stacy Wagnon is firm but loves the kids and makes sure they are safe and developing. It's true there are limited after-school activities, but there are so many options for kids in Southlake (mine went to Primrose and then Children's Courtyard). We miss many of the teachers already.
CES is a truly wonderful school. Parent volunteers are plentiful and VERY welcomed by the teachers and administration. I have been happy with the teachers. The kindergarten teachers are fabulous. You will not find a better kindergarten experience anywhere else.
Lots of parental involvement and the best teachers in the district. Easy to become involved if interested. Principle is caring and knows each child by name, even seems to know more about each child and individual needs.
