Lunch & Recess

We believe that students' health and well-being goes hand-in-hand with academic success. That's why we prioritize lunch and recess time on all 3 campuses.

Multiple times a day, students have the opportunity to recharge during recess. We've designed our outside spaces and equipment to be age-appropriate, interesting, and challenging per grade level.

Likewise, student have designated times throughout the day for snack and lunch. Students have a couple of options for lunch. They can bring their own lunches to school. Or, parents have the option to buy a hot or cold lunch from our partner, Smart Lunches. Carroll provides milk for interested students at lunch.
