Pre-K through 4th grade were awesome! My children flourished and the teachers were awesome. But after the new principal came, teachers left and my children went on to 5-8th grade things changed drastically and there was no real support. No concern for what was happening or real resolutions.

My child attended the gifted kindergarten, and I was very impressed with what she was learning. The teachers and staff are friendly and the children are well behaved. Unfortunately we had to leave the program, because my child was having too much separation anxiety. Her teacher was very understanding and really wanted to work with us. But we decided it was best to hold our child back a year.

My daughter attends the Carnegie RGC and we are so thrilled with her experience. She has taken huge strides academically and is surrounded by love and attention. The children are respectful and kind to one another, and the results of their hard work are amazing. The teachers are engaged and highly skilled. A wide range of activities are available as well as aftercare options and intensive tutoring. It is not a perfect school, but it is a very good one, and I recommend a tour and serious consideration from any parent.

My child started at Carnegie in the gifted program almost 6 years ago. My 2nd daughter just completed the pre-K program. I will say that the pre-K teacher was excellent. She got my daughter where she needed to be. I have not been satisfied with my older child's teacher's since 1st grade gifted. That is why I am transferring them out for the coming school year. I was not a complete product of the public school system. Most of my elementary school years and high school years were spent in either Christian or Catholic school. So, I don't know why I though I could trust the public school system to educate my children. That being said, I am looking forward to them leaving. I would not recommend Carnegie school to any parent.
