Notes for Prospective Students
Carden Memorial School was first established in an old red brick
house at 288 North Main St. in 1969 by Donald and Anna Lou Jeffs
with a student body of forty.
The school is today, in 2008-2009,
entering its 40th year with an enrollment of nearly 400 students in
grades Junior Kindergarten through the 8th grade in the former
Highland Park School located at 1452 East 2700 South.
Memorial School is a traditional day school which is based upon the
philosophy and teaching techniques of the late Mae Carden who
conducted training courses in California over a period of several
years which the directors and teachers attended.
She also made
annual visits to the school for the purpose of demonstration
teaching until shortly before her death in 1977 at the age of 82.
At this time the school's name was changed to Carden Memorial
We still have on the faculty, teachers who attended Carden
courses or were students who remember Miss Carden's annual visits.
