This is a very special school. There is a great emphasis on all levels of ability. The children who can are pushed ahead and challenged and the children who need a slower pace are challenged at their own pace. A wonderful environment for children to learn.

I think that the school is off to a great change with the new principal in place. This is his second year and I am looking forward to great year in education

My son attended Rachel Carson last year and loved it. I found the teachers to be sincere and truely care for their students. The staff even helped parents get the students in and out of their parents cars in the mornings and afternoons. That was a big help for a mother of 2, one an infant.
