Cartwright Elementary School District Reviews

3 reviews
They are pretty strict on bullying and understanding when confronted about an issue. They are good at alerting parents/guardians about safety concerns when a potential abduction occurs in the district area. The only thing that bothers me is the other children's behavior and foul language on and out of school around my child.

My experience with this school district mainly DSMS is that the teacher are very friendly, but the students ( i have dealt with) are very immature. But it's an overall great school district
This school needs more help to provide enough for every kid that attends every year. The lack of resources and the amount of time that some students need to learn. This school needs to get more involved with what the staff does with their students as well as parents.
