About Us

Carleton Motto: We Can. We Will. Do Our Best! No Excuses! Carleton Elementary School, offering grades PreK to 5, has a mission to promote a rigorous learning community that engages staff, students, parents and the neighborhood to aid in the success of our students. We strive for high academic performance in a nurturing environment that promotes social and emotional growth. Our students learn from a highly specialized staff of innovators and instructional specialists. Nestled within a vibrant residential area, we have strong support from community partners. Carleton will institute a NEW school-wide positive leadership model based on inside-out transformation as presented in the Seven Effective Habits model. As part of the Carleton Leadership Academy/The Leader In Me Program, the transformation begins from the inside out. Through internalizing the seven habits, teachers will begin to change their thinking about themselves and the students.
