History of Carroll School
The history of Carroll School dates back to 1967, when Dr. Edwin Cole, a Massachusetts General Hospital neurologist, and a small group of concerned individuals founded a school for children with language-based learning differences. Today, Carroll is a thriving community where children come together in an environment that values their differences and remediates their learning difficulties. While Carroll’s history is a short one, its tradition is rich and its mission firmly grounded.
