My sons attended Carden and I constantly get compliments about how polite and well-mannered they are. They entered high school well prepared to take advanced classes, and they graduated with honors. The staff shows great interest in each child and allows individualized learning.
Absolutely love this school. I feel that Mr. Jeffs has had a wonderful impact on my children's lives. I highly recommend this school.
This is a horrible school do not send your child here unless you want to pay for therapy later. The place is literally stuck in time, with a way it used to be mentality. When I went there it was full of spoiled children that had serious discipline problems.
I just wanted to write my review about my children's education at Carden. Both of my children have now graduated from Carden and I never fully realized what an influence the school, and specifically Mr. Taylor, had on their lives. Mr. Taylor, and the rest of the faculty, helped my children understand the value of a good education and the need to maintain their own values. Mr. Taylor helped one of my children through a very difficult time and to this day I realize that it was a life changing moment for him. He was kind, compassionate and understanding. He listened and helped my son and me understand the changes that were needed to help him be a better student. What a great example. Mr. Taylor is not the only teacher who takes the time to help students like mine, all the faculty cares.
i love this school! I'm in 8th grade and loving every last bit of it as i can. The teachers actually CARE about your future and how you treat one another. One of the cons that this school has is that it has no activities, clubs, sports, electives, etc. But over all it is a caring, loving school! I'd recommend this school to anyone!
Very good school. My child is going to second grade. Cursive writing is taught from kindergarten and the children grasp it so well. Reading and math skills are excellent. The Jeffs do an excellent job and Mr Taylor is a dedicated Head Master.
We have been thrilled with the progress our children have made year after year at Carden! The amount of material they are able to cover and successfully retain is amazing. It is truly wonderful having ALL teachers using the same learning methods to keep the children on track for constant progression. The teachers and staff truly want each child to succeed and the expectations are high, but achievable. We wouldn't consider sending our kids anywhere but Carden!
My son is in his first year at Carden, and he loves it! I have yet to have a 'Does it have to be a school day' since he's started. He leaves happy, comes home happy and is always excited about what he has learned that day. Carden reinforces what we as parents have been teaching our children at home by emphasizing good manners, respect for faculty and other students, good citizenship, and being a well rounded kind person. My son has 3 teachers for the 20 something students in his class, which has made it easier forhis learning needs to be met. The programs offered are of the highest quality as are the teachers. Mr. Taylor, the headmaster, is truly a wonderful example for the students as are Mr. and Mrs. Jeffs. I am very happy with Carden and recommend it to anyone that will listen.
I love this school for my children. The children at Carden obviously feel safe, loved, and valued. You can tell this when you walk the halls. Carden Memorial provides a healthy amount of structure for the children, and is very open to working with parents on their children's goals and issues. The emphasis on kindness, manners, academics, the arts, and citizenship is wonderful. From a political perspective, I am a very liberal parent, and I find Carden completely in keeping with my ethics and values. I especially like their emphasis on living within a community and learning to get along with others. I can highly recommend this school. The headmaster, Mr. Taylor, provides a wonderful role model for all the children. And the teachers have been top notch.
