Aside from the science of controlling pandemic threats to humanity, one of the most important lessons from the past year is that schools and teachers are far, far more essential to our nation than we previously had ascribed.

Carroll Connection 2019-2020
Carroll’s vibrant community collaboratively pens the school’s journey story. Each student, alumnus, parent, and teacher brings a unique perspective to this shared journey and the mile markers along the way. In this edition of Carroll Connection, we hear from our community about their journey before, during, and after Carroll School.
Carroll uses a variety of data to tell the story of how our students progress and thrive. No chart or graph, however, is as powerful as the stories we hear from families and alumni themselves. This year, Kate Collins (Upper School Division Head) paired up with Mary McNulty to bring in alumni to share their stories with Upper School students. Read about this powerful new speaker series.
Every year, Carroll is fortunate to have an active group of parents who devote time and energy to finding creative ways of building and strengthening our community. Due to the pandemic and lack of ability to come together in person, the PA’s work has never been more important.
When Carroll leadership transformed its teacher professional development strategy a few years ago, little did they know that a pandemic was going to disrupt the way teachers teach. When the school moved to a hybrid learning approach, academic leadership knew that in order to be successful it would need to transform teacher training again.
This year, four Carroll educators participated in the 2020 NAIS - People of Color Conference (PoCC) to further their understanding of themselves and the work of DEI at Carroll. Read reflections of the event from Osa Osagie, Demi Wu, and Nicole Siverls.
On behalf of the Carroll Board of Trustees, we are thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr. Renée Greenfield as Carroll’s next Head of School. She will succeed Steve Wilkins and his 16 years of extraordinary leadership in July 2021.
Carroll’s DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) journey has been organic and beautiful. Osa Osagie shares how today's shifting social political climate provides a timely opportunity to model to students how to have brave conversations and support our students' learning through age-appropriate curricula.
We have seen a fantastic trend in recent years of alumni and parents 'coming home' to deliver the full Carroll experience to our students. In fact, there are currently a record 25 parents and alumni/alumni parents working at Carroll. We chatted with a few to learn more about why they have chosen to work at Carroll and what they are looking forward to this year.
Today, we’re chatting with Shea Schatell (Carroll’s Multis Department Head) about this year’s Multis program, how the program has adapted to hybrid schooling, and how our master teachers continue to think differently about how they GEC (give each child what they most need).
Every family with school aged children is in a tough spot this fall. How to get back to school is nothing but a large basket full of hard decisions. In this blog, I write about what we share as a community as we look forward to Carroll School’s reopening.
