Our Philosophy

The faculty of W.J. Carroll Intermediate believes public schools should prepare students to participate effectively as productive citizens in our democratic society. We believe that understanding lessons of the past, as they affect the present, will enable students to become flexible, open-minded individuals who can adapt successfully to changing society.

We believe that a student with a sense of his own self worth will not only learn better, but will also be more likely to set and to accomplish worthwhile goals. We believe that students have differing learning styles and abilities and need a variety of learning activities.

We believe that good communication and mathematical skills are essential to leading full productive lives as contributing members of society. We also believe that in addition to the mastery of basic academic skills, students need to develop positive attitudes toward life-long learning.

We recognize that the school cannot function effectively in accomplishing our goals without the support of parents and community.

Our Mission

We provide a positive learning community that develops respectful, responsible, and resourceful citizens to ensure success for all by living the 7 habits.

Our Academic Mission Statement

In partnership with parents and the community, W. J. Carroll Intermediate School will teach students to perform at or above grade level in reading and math.
