I love Carden. I am currently a 6th-grade student here. I have been heard since 4th grade. The middle school teaches you how to write a perfect essay. We learn French and Latin and have art class. In art, we paint Pacaso, and many cultural paintings, we do not only paint but draw and past too! I love all the classes except for music because of personal reasons. all my friends like it here. And I am very grateful for my education. I was pretty smart in public school but here at Carden my lord, I am not smart compared to everyone else. I will graduate carden in 2 years and I want to go to Evergreen Lutheran High school in Tacoma Washington. Why? because it has small classes, supposedly good teachers and my dad went there!. i am not saying that people should stay with there grandparents and move to Washington but evergreen is a very good school too. Love Carden.

We made a decision to move our daughters to Carden from a Clovis public school when it became abundantly obvious how bored my oldest was with school. Both girls graduated from Carden; my youngest said farewell to Carden just this past year. They are both at University High School now and are excelling there beyond our expectations. Carden, especially during middle school, prepared them for the rigorous college prep work at UHS. By the time the girls started UHS, they have already read most of the required books for UHS. They have already had intellectual discussions about each book. While other students at UHS are being taught "how to write an essay", these girls have already written so many during their time at Carden. They are not afraid of hard work. Carden prepared them for all that. They are also good people. Many of the values we instill in them at home were reinforced each day they went to school. We get compliments all the time on what wonderful children we have. We wish we can take all the credit, but it does "take a village."

We came to Carden School of Fresno after two years of attending our neighborhood public school. Our main reason to move to Carden School of Fresno at first, was class size - my Kindergartener at the time was among 34 children in our public school. It was only after we arrived at CSOF that we realized that we made the right move for many other reasons: in addition to receiving a very solid education, children here are required to wear uniforms and are taught manners and etiquette in as early as Pre-Kindergarten class. They say good morning to the teacher every morning and thank them daily for their day... good old fashioned manners. Those good manners and care of others around them stays with them every day. You can see it in the eyes and faces of the middle school children. They truly and genuinely care for the younger children at the school. They carry themselves with dignity and respect, and that to me, is worth every penny that we pay for this private education. Check out the website and find out more about Carden School of Fresno at
