In Everything We Do,
We Go For Gold.
A bold promise- we know. Since 1886, we've shown our students how to work hard to reach their goals. It takes character and courage. Most important, it means working together as one community. That's why all of our schools- elementary, upper elementary, junior high and high school- share the same 130-acre campus. We are Trojans. Watch what we can do.
The Carrollton City Schools and community nurture and empower individuals to be life-long learners who take personal responsibility for improving our world.
The Carrollton City Schools will meet or exceed the expectations of the people we serve by providing:
- a plan for developing and supporting school and community partnerships
- a safe, healthy environment for students, teachers and staff
- the best prepared teachers, administrators and staff
- a challenging curriculum and learning opportunities
- the highest quality instructional resources and tools
- a plan of continuous improvement
