Carrsville has some work to do on parental relations, a parent should feel as though the school is a partner not an enemy. When a child earns an "F" it says the teacher failed -- not that the student. The teachers need to do a better job of meeting the child where he or she is and Differentiating Instruction to meet the needs of all children individually.

My child has been in this school for 6 years and this school should be a model for all the schools in America. Very caring and trustworthy. The principal, Mrs. Carr, knows every student and I mean "every" student by name. This is a "one in a million" school.

Small school atmosphere and personal attention these students get is superior. Even the principal is very impressive with her sincere interest in the education and well being of the students.

My daughter loves CES! Everyday she comes home she tells us every new letter she has learned or what she did in class. They have a well-rounded curriculum including art, gym, music, computers and library. The principal, Mrs. Carr, is very involved with the students. They have homework every night except friday's. The teacher sends home a letter explaining what they did for the week. Parent involvment is very important!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
