    "There has been a vast improvement the last year of two regarding the respect being shown parents by the office personnel. Parents should continue to demand the respect their entitled to at James Earl Carter Elementary."

    "Carter's staff from the principal to the office staff, teachers, librarian and noon yard supervisors are all wonderful! I was saddened to read the prior post by another parent as I witnessed the event they were speaking of. The office staff was to the point with this parent because they had pulled in to a one-way entrance going the wrong way which could have put our children, mine included, at harm. It's unfair to ridicule the staff without explaining the entire circumstances behind their demeanor. Our family could not be more grateful for the care, support, and guidance provided by the entire staff at Carter. We also have a wonderful community of supportive parents at Carter."

    "My daughter has attended Carter for 4 years now and we have had an absolutely wonderful experience with each teacher and each year that passes. The staff is kind and diligent. The principal is kind and cares for the children. The teachers are truly great in every aspect you would want as a parent for your child. I highly recommend this school! We feel blessed to call it our Elementary Home."

    "I love the school. My kids started to attend Carter Elementary last school year and I am happy about it. I can't believe how much kids are reading. My son wasn't a big reader, but now he is enjoying reading and I don't even have to tell him to read anymore. I love the math curriculum too. Teachers put so much energy to give attention to individual kids' improvement. They work so hard. Communications with teachers are excellent too. When I sent an email to ask a question, they sent me back right away. PTO is very active to help the school. Great organization. Many parents are involved for classroom or school volunteer. The great thing is parents are willing to help not being obligated. I have not heard any complains from other parents and I don't have any either. (Maybe one... the picking up kids is a little bit too hectic?)"
