In 2010, we came to the realization that we were sitting on a treasure trove of student data. Since then, Carroll School has made the institutional commitment to train our teachers and staff to harness the data before deciding how and what to teach each student. It's how we fulfill our mission to give each child what he or she most needs. Read how we do that.

If he could run fast enough, he might be able to jump onto the train. Carroll helped him realize that “I am the train” and teachers need to learn how to catch up to me.
