    "My child is just completing the Gifted Kindergarten program at Carnegie. As a teacher, I waas terrified to release my impressionable baby to just ANYBODY, ANYWHERE. I drove by the school at all hours of the day and night to 'check out' the neighborhood and the school grounds. I was pleased with the area surrounding the school. The summer 'mock' week of school was extremely beneficial and thoughtful to get the children ready for their first classroom experience. Mrs. Wilson and Ms. Hudson are FANTASTIC! My child can read better than a second grader, can add and subtract two digit numbers. They have given scientific challenges, and knowledge in Social Sciences. Not to mention that we were particularily 'stumped' on a geometry assignment that my child eloquently explained to us!! The school is clean and safe, security is on point, and the principal is a true educator! Great afterschool programs and PTA!"

    "Carnegie School from my personal experience is one of the best elementary schools you can go to. I say this because you learn what you need to learn to exceed in life-in all subjects because the teachers are your friends and want to help you in all parts of your life. But I'm going to keep the rating realistic, because just because i go to the school I'm not going to rate excellent when I know that even though the school is one of the best, there is still a school that is better than them in some or most ways."

    "I am a parent of (2) students attending Carnegie School. My son entered Gifted K, almost 6 years ago and my daughter just completed Gifted K. I am more than pleased with not only (most important) curriculum but the environment in whole. The teachers that I have been in contact with are indeed supportive, caring and overall DEDICATED. This unfortunately is rare within our public school system for many of reasons. It is my opinion having an education background that teachers are just as important as the parent as it relates to a students level of success. I owe, my son and my daughters 'success' to Carnegie's staff. In 5 (going on six) years I have yet, felt as though my children werent safe enough or didnt belong to this school. I am pleased to be a part of the Carnegie Community. :)"

    "My 6 year old is in gifted kindergaten and has learnt so much this year. She reads very well and and seems to enjoy school. Her reading level is comparable to a 2nd grader."

    "The gifted program is still fairly new and leaves a lot to be desired. It's not what I expected and isn't comparable to the other Regional Gifted Centers."
