My son attended Carson, K-5. I am afraid I must disagree with the one parents comment. My son, was a young kinder, and with the attentive teachers he had they recognized his disabilty. He was left handed...they found a college student to help him with his fine motor skills. He was retained, his academic ...  Read more

I've had three kids go through that class, two years of sixty kids, and I can't say enough wonderful things about the teachers, their organizational methods, and how they treat the kids. They not only showed that they cared about ...  Read more

I attended Carson when I was a kid and had such a good time that I sent my son there as well. I have been disappointed with Carson, however. The teachers are so overwhelmed that they have little time for individual attention. I also wish there were programs such as art, music or science. I know these ...  Read more

My son has gone to Carson school since October of last year. I can honestly say that our experience with the school so far has been filled with ,mixed emotions. On one hand, we are happy with the progress that he has made and are happy with the attitude of one of his teachers. But the other teacher that ...  Read more
