    "My daughter attends the Carnegie RGC and we are so thrilled with her experience. She has taken huge strides academically and is surrounded by love and attention. The children are respectful and kind to one another, and the results of their hard work are amazing. The teachers are engaged and highly skilled. A wide range of activities are available as well as aftercare options and intensive tutoring. It is not a perfect school, but it is a very good one, and I recommend a tour and serious consideration from any parent."

    "My child started at Carnegie in the gifted program almost 6 years ago. My 2nd daughter just completed the pre-K program. I will say that the pre-K teacher was excellent. She got my daughter where she needed to be. I have not been satisfied with my older child's teacher's since 1st grade gifted. That is why I am transferring them out for the coming school year. I was not a complete product of the public school system. Most of my elementary school years and high school years were spent in either Christian or Catholic school. So, I don't know why I though I could trust the public school system to educate my children. That being said, I am looking forward to them leaving. I would not recommend Carnegie school to any parent."

    "The leadership at this school is EXTREMELY poor. I have taken a few issues to the principal (Marlene Heath) and each time she either FAILS to thoroughly care for the issue or allows the TEACHERS to act on her behalf. Speaking of teachers, many of them speak to the students like they are DOGS and have even called the unacceptable names. Some teachers DO work hard however, MOST of then are LAZY and seem to be there just for the paycheck. THEY run the school -NOT the principal. Its really sad... This school is a JOKE -I would NOT recommend it."

    "This is not a bad school, but I have found over the last four years that the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Although there is not a lot of outright violence, there is an excessive amount of teasing and bullying. Some of the teachers are spectacular, while others just clock their hours and get out of there. The PTA is new, and they're doing as well as they can, but not a lot of parents are involved in the school program."

    "With their new golf program Carnegie now expands the childrens' mind in sports as well as scholastics."
