Carroll is a magical place for dyslexic children. I have two children there. The school partners with parents. The school is caring. Teachers are dedicated, energetic, happy. Administration is responsive and involved. Parents are friendly and supportive of one another. I am truly blessed to be able to have my children attend. And last but not least - my children LOVE school. My children are HAPPY and SUCCEEDING. Carroll is everything a school should be! Lots of sports in middle school and everyone can participate and is welcome to participate. Great arts education as well.
