Middle School (Grades 6-8)
Guiding students to become effective learners.
Carroll's Middle School provides a high school preparatory curriculum with tailored academic support. The program is ideal for smart students who struggle with one or various aspects of language skills - be it reading, fluency, comprehension, writing, etc. Our educators recognize that every student has a unique learning profile, and design their curricula to nourish the skills needed to become an effective learner.
Carroll School Curriculum
The driving emphasis in the Carroll School curriculum is delivering what each child most needs. This means that the classroom experiences are tailored specifically to meet the needs of each child. Given our small classes and tutorials, achieving this lofty goal is actually possible. Unlike traditional schools where a prescribed curriculum defines what happens in the classroom, Carroll’s curriculum emphasizes the skill development and learning strategies that each child needs to acquire and pays close attention to the grade-level content delivered in public and other independent schools.

We believe that a commitment to a child’s healthy social and emotional well-being goes hand-in-hand with academic success.
At the Middle School, students start each day within small advisory groups. Using Developmental Design techniques, students work on preparing for the day, setting personal goals, and enhancing social support and relationships. We also help students make inclusive and positive connections through recess, community service, athletics, clubs, talent showcases, spirit days, our annual Fall Festival, and so much more.
