Carpenter is a dream come true. Teachers are terrific, the community of parents is wonderful and very involved in all aspects of the school, and the principal is among the best we've ever seen. We had thought of sending our kids to a private school but are so happy we wound up here.

Carpenter Ave is great school for students and parents, but not so much for special education itinerant staff. In fact, the entire group left at the end of the school year two years ago. Pros- great parent support so kids come to school ready to learn, good principal, supplimental programs paid for ...  Read more

Lives up to it's reputation! This is a truly excellent school, with lots of personal attention and a strong connection to the neighborhood. My daughter attended K-6 and we still miss it. There was some variation in the quality of the teachers but the overall quality was very good -- Sanchez, Colbert, ...  Read more
