This is a fantastic school. It is a fun, safe school where the kids are encouraged to challenge themselves academically. My kids love their teachers and friends here. They have a music program, Spanish classes, cooking, yoga, a school vegetable garden and other fun programs. The kids learn to organize themselves and tend to do well academically.

This school has been an amazing experience for our family. The classroom environment is friendly and everyone is eager to learn. It is wonderful to see all of the students interacting with each other, and no bulling of other students. Both of my children attend Carden, and it is great that there is no struggle going to school in the morning. They are both ready to go and happy to be at school.
