Open Quote Carman is ranked below 1 percent? I have been a teacher for 22 years, 20 of those in CPS, I can beyond a reasonable shadow of a doubt tell you that this school is not bad at all. There are a few students that come here that are needing of discipline and guidance at home but there are a lot of wonderful, special students here at this school. For example, musically speaking, we have two absolutely incredible drum set players here! 3rd graders no less. The teachers on staff here care about the students and that is a huge plus and the administration is working hard to make this a much better school. I can say that most of CPS schools are not schools that I would teach at and I teach here and enjoy it. I gave three stars because it has much potential and while it will never be a St. Charles or Geneva type of school I can tell you that it is NOT a bad school at all. Yes, there is a percentage of students that are a challenge but we are reaching them and they are improving, whether or not they will improve 100 percent is up to their parents. If you are a good parent there is no reason why you would want to avoid this school. It is a rising star. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
