Carson Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

March 22, 2018 Submitted by a parent
I could not disagree with the two most recent reviews more. There is a small, but vocal, minority who have been disastisfied with recent decisions that the school has made. As a parent, I can see that the school is making these decisions with the best interest of the students in mind. The angry reviews as of recent, are based around the fact that the school is losing its librarian. With the best of intentions, this small minority of parents has tried to save the librarian's job. When they weren't able to do that due to aggressive budget cuts at the state-level (i.e. not a decision that the staff/admin wanted to make), these parents were upset (understandably so). However, this minority of parents have created a really unsettling and negative environment that they are trying to spread through to others in the community. I wholeheartedly believe the principal when she says that everything she does is with the best of intentions for children. I have never seen a school with such dedication to not only creating the best possible academic and emotional environment for its students, but as well as the staff. The current administration has been working in education for over 20 years with their combined experience and, as a parent, I feel blessed to be able to afford to live in a community with this wonderful of a staff, this encouraging of an environment, and this knowledgeable of an administration.

Carson was a wonderful school the first couple years my children attended. There are many excellent teachers. We moved into the (pricey) neighborhood so that we could be in the school boundary. Unfortunately, the new Principal has created a very negative, elitist environment, with a small group of her friends and supporters involved in the major decisions. There have been some poor choices made without the majority of parental or community feedback. This appears to be because the Admin does not care have others question decisions, lest they be held accountable. For example, since the arrival of the new principal, HGT and ECE have been eliminated, good teachers are leaving or being pushed out when they voice differing opinions under the guise of budget decisions, there is a shift from FT Teachers towards para-professionals, and there is very little proactive communication or visibility into anything; from budgeting to safety. In meetings the Principal has indicated that she does not want parents to ask questions or voice their opinions. The most recent controversial issue is the lack of communication about the new bell schedule, (early release Friday's at 1:15pm) which has been approved by DPS already with essentially NO parental or community feedback. The process that the Administration choose to take was unacceptable in that they sought approval prior to having feedback and data from the community. This places a burden on families who have 2 working parents; extends the school day for children by 30 minutes the rest of the days. I am concerned that my children's learning will suffer due them being overworked/stressed. Not to mention the fact that many in this school already remove their kids early on Friday's; what happens when a significant portion of the class is absent on a regular basis? Friday early release is being justified by indicating that teachers need more time to plan and meet.Friday afternoons are the likely not the best time for this - teachers are tired. Admin is making a poor decision at the expense of the students without communicating or looking for an alternate solution.I will likely be removing my children from Carson next year to attend school where EXPERIENCED Admin prioritizes learning and safety over ratings, and focuses on working and engaging WITH parents. Carson is at great risk of becoming sub-par. DPS, please listen.

Carson WAS a fantastic school until the new principal came in two years ago. She doesn't have the creativity or frankly the experience to ensure the needs are met of all the different tracks within the school community -and she's never taught in the classroom which feels like a huge miss. Additionally, she's an extremely poor communicator who tries to exclude parents from the educational process. She's intimidated by the neighborhood parents who want nothing more to help and support the school - so she keeps them at arm's length. It's extremely sad. It once was a great place. Now, all the classrooms are over crowded and resources are in short supply. The school as the potential to be so much more, but not under the current leadership. Thankfully, the teachers are fantastic and power through despite the circumstances.

Carson is a well-regarded elementary school in the Hilltop area. It has a fabulous character ed program that really differentiates it from other schools. On the whole, it's a very safe, fun and enriching place to attend elementary school in Denver. The math program is new this year, and so far, it looks much better than the previous Everyday Math program. Kudos to Carson for switching out of the DPS curriculum. As far as administration, they have worked very hard to clean up the school -- new paint, new tile, organized classrooms, tidy office and entrance, no mouse droppings, no foul smells -- a HUGE improvement. As for the previous reviewer who is irritated with "entitled" Hilltop parents who want a small neighborhood school for our children....yes, we do. We do not want a magnet HGT program that excludes our neighborhood students. On that vein, the school has made huge efforts to identify children in the traditional classrooms and provide advanced HGT enrichment to more students. Additionally, it is a huge improvement with car drop off / pick up zones that encourage student independence. There are tons of volunteer opportunities for parents who work outside of Carson to raise funds and support faculty and staff. Thanks to the new admin for making these changes and cleaning up Carson.

Our family spent three years at Carson and regret wasting a large part of our children's elementary education. The first two years were spent with one child being bullied by her combination first/second grade class teacher. The interim administration acknowledged the behavior, but there were no consequences for the bullying teacher. Third grade brought a brand new principal who doesn't care about the school's families - only "her test scores." She pushed out the HGT certified teachers only to replace them with non-certified teachers. Her inability to budget correctly cost the PTA well over $30,000 to fill the monetary gaps created by her limiting student enrollment to well under district averages or standards. The limited enrollment is partially due to the above mentioned test scores, but also because "the neighborhood wants a small, neighborhood school." That's all well and good, but this is a public school with two separate magnet programs funded by the state. The school administration doesn't support either magnet program or their teachers, but the school is completely dependent on the extra money that funds the magnet programs. What was once a vibrant and involved parent community has been squelched by the new administration's demand that all ECE and kindergarten students be dropped off at the curb - she is very specific she doesn't want parents on campus. Parents on campus is how you get volunteers and without volunteers Carson doesn't exist. Carson was once a lovely, welcoming school community. The new administration bowing to the white, entitled residents of Hilltop will be the ultimate downfall of the school.
