As a parent to a son who is free spirited when it comes to his academics, this school has offered so many tools and resources to help me help him understand the curriculum. He does try but it isn't hard enough, so for this year and next year's Standards testing, I'm putting him in tutoring to build his confidence and scores. Carpenter has wonderful teachers and whatever bad comment you may hear about teachers or this school, well people are entitled to their own opinion but there are many positive aspects to this school too.

I've never met a group of teachers that were so dedicated to their students. The pride these teacher have for their school shows in their teaching!!

I was so disappointed with Carpenter Elementary school. I had my parent conference with my daughters teachers, telling them that she is having problems reading and comprehending, and that she should be failing the class but instead they were passing her . She needed help, but the school was interested in their stats. Her 5th grade teacher continually picked on her, I had a meeting with him, my daughter still complained and so finally i involved the principal only to find out more interesting things that my daughter went through and no one notified me.My daughter was scared to tell me incase that teacher took it out on her. My daughter HATES school now, has same learning problems, low self esteem and does not have any more motivation thanks to a particular Carpenter teacher.
