The Carroll County School System is committed to excellence and focused on success as we strive to meet our mission of being valued as a premier learning environment creating success for all students.  Our school system is known across the state for our focus on Teaching, Learning and Caring while ensuring every student has the best opportunity to achieve success.

Our vision for the future revolves around ensuring all parts of the school system being recognized as a premier learning environment. To make this happen, the system maintains alignment and focuses on our four strategic goal areas of increasing student achievement and success, improving stakeholder engagement and loyalty, developing efficient and effective organizational processes, and ensuring continuous system and school improvement.  We believe that by implementing these four objectives consistently; we will increase hope, trust and confidence in our system and ensure Carroll County is recognized as one of the best school systems in the state.

The uniqueness of Carroll County Schools lies in the seamless connection between our schools and the community. We maintain the belief that community schools provide a personal approach that ultimately makes a difference for each student. By working together in a strong partnership, students, educators, parents, local businesses, government and community take pride in supporting the educational programs across our district. As a result, students in Carroll County Schools experience a community school approach that supports the unique needs of each part of our school system.

We take pride in the accomplishments of our school system and recognize that the true measure of our success lies in how our students, parents and community feel about what we are doing. Our schools seek to provide challenging academic and extra-curricular opportunities that prepare students for a productive life. With a rigorous curriculum and high expectations, we put students first through a student-centered approach to learning.

While we are proud of the tradition of Carroll County Schools, we still have much work to do. Therefore, we constantly strive for ways to improve student achievement, improve the learning environment, and to provide the resources needed to help our students learn and succeed in an ever-changing world.  Our goal is that we all work together to make our good school system even better. We understand that our aspiration to make our school system one of the best in the state requires the commitment of employees, students, parents, and our community. Together, we can create a premier school system focused on the needs of all students and committed to excellence in everything we do.

We invite you to browse the website, visit our school and become a part of our commitment to Teaching, Learning and Caring for all students.
