Rachel Carson Elementary School Reviews

I would say okay because I have been there since pre-k until 8th grade when I graduated and the teachers do really care about their alumni and the help you get there is honestly the best. Upper grades will tend to help the lower grade students so they can get a better understanding of their homework and basically what they are doing in class.

There really is no bullying in this school and they strictly enforce health and safety for the students. The security is great and reliable. The school nurses are okay but could be better.
It's rather quite well. Everything is organized and they are on top of their game. They are really helpful
