The Carey School Ratings & Reviews

September 04, 2015 Submitted by a parent
The Carey School is the best elementary school in the peninsula. It's curriculum, teachers and administrators are first-rate and the small community is a wonderful world for the children to grow up within. Unlike many independent schools, Carey is racially diverse, and this is one of its strengths. It's not very economically diverse but that's hard to achieve in a school like this, and the school does a good job to promote it. Our child received a stellar education without feeling any pressure. Everyday was fun and she learned a tremendous amount. I highly recommend the Carey School for all students who are bright, curious and have a desire to learn.

My child attended from Pre-K through 2nd grade. Our experience through 1st grade was average - many times my husband and I questioned whether the value received was worth the very high tuition cost. And then in 2nd it quickly went from bad to worse. My child's teacher for 2nd grade gave the impression that he was inconvenienced by kids with different learning styles and didn't want to engage with the parents. And for a school that claims to value and celebrate the whole child - this is a disgrace. Add to it, the leadership and administration team at Carey is inept. Needless to say we did not return for 3rd grade. Some teachers in PK through 1 were great, but quality is very variable. For the price of tuition, this school rates well below average.

While it may be obvious, I wanted to highlight that people with negative comments are more likely to feel compelled to come post a comment here. Carey is a wonderful school with a great community. There are always some families for whom Carey is not a good fit (no school is right for 100% of kids). But as an involved parent at this school, I can say that all of the parents I know are thrilled with the education that their children are receiving. The best advice that I can give is to come visit the school and see for yourself. You will know if it is the right place for your child.

My child attended The Carey school for three years. I choose the school for two reasons: Good Teacher/Student ratio (each classroom has ~20 students per Teacher+Assistant), and an emphasis on Community. Unfortunately, even though each classroom has two teachers, most of them have not been good. Of the six we encountered, one was stellar and five were below average. Also the auxilliary teachers (science, art, fl, music) are all below average. Mostly due to keeping teachers on well past their prime. The other big disappiontment has been the community emphasis. Parents are not allowed to participate in the learning process, though they are required to help with many fundraising activities. Also, despite the "community" emphasis, siblings are not always invited to attend. Our second daughter who has shown signs of brilliance also has an independent streak and Carey said "No Thanks" at the last minute, which really put us in a bind. Doesn't say much for community support if you ask me. The principal has a way with words and is very flowery, but seems driven by whatever book he read last. This is irrelevant though as he and the assistant are both leaving this year (6/2011)
