Carson was a great experience, the math teachers are all great, it's a safe environment, and prepares the students for high school better than any other middle school in the area. The students are academically very advanced, with most students taking math classes that are two years above their actual grade level, and a few students taking classes up to four years above grade level, all successfully.
My experience at Rachel Carson Middle School is one I can never forget. I loved just about everything from the plentiful after school clubs offered to the caring staff members. This school has really helped me develop tremendously as a person. I remember walking in to this school on the first day being very introverted and had no passion to learn. I hated the idea of having different classes with different teachers and being seperated from the few friends I had formed over the 7 years I spent in elementary school. Going into high school next year, I can say that I have blossomed into an outgoing individual with a passion of learning that was instilled into me over the course of two years. I have also gotten much better at public speaking and have learned to manage my time wisely. Of course, no school can be perfect. I thought the food served in the cafeteria could be better as well as the strict rules involving technology could be altered. Nonetheless, it is an excellent school.
