The school's colors are blue and yellow, and the mascot is a cougar. Carney's staff is committed to providing quality instruction in a safe learning environment.

Alt-MSA scores demonstrate that 100% of our students with special needs are proficient or advanced in reading, math and science.

We welcome volunteers to support our students' achievement. We are proud to be Carney Cougars!
