Carroll's Communications September 2018

A brief word........

Hello parents and community members. This is Matthew J. Carroll the principal of Circle High. We are off to a GREAT start to our school year. Our staff is energized and roaring to go. As a faculty we spent the start of the year designing a new Advisory time program to be very intentional about helping your child develop a career path. We want to diversify our approach to address the wide range of career options that are out there in the job market today. Our counselors have been a part of this process to insure that our curriculum offerings match your child's career goals. No matter if your child is going to college, the military, getting a trade certificate or immediately joining the work force we want to insure they are taking the right classes to achieve that goal. Circle is in a unique situation that we are so geographically close to Butler Co. Community College, Wichita State Technical Training School and the various career academies embedded in other area high schools to be able to offer a wide range of career tailored class offerings. This is an exciting time to be in the Kansas educational system.


We want to be responsive to your questions or concerns. Please feel free to contact me directly at 316-541-2277 or email mcarroll@usd375.org. I truly enjoy the opportunity to work in such a great school district with so many tremendous people. Thrive in 375!!!!
