Carson Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

This school has not done anything to help my child attend a good High School. It has a partnership with Gage Park High School, a notoriously dangerous school where children's education can come to a halt because of a stray bullet. My child has been on the Honor Roll every year since first attending Carson back in 2003 and now that he is ready to graduate the counselors at Carson are telling him not to apply for anything better than Gage Park because he won't be capable of anything better. This school has let me and many other parents down, but more importantly our children's future is quite litterally beign shot down thanks to the low expectations of teachers and counselors alike.
