Carlisle is important to me because the education given is beyond a typical private school. It is the dream of how education should be, and the character/moral education is helping me raise my daughter into a human being I am so proud of all the way through.

My daughter has been at Carlisle since Kindergarten. She is now in the 8th grade. We love the school because it is more of a family. The teachers care—the staff care. I’m so thankful and appreciative of how this school goes beyond the call of duty for its students. If you want small classes, caring teachers, and a great education, Carlisle School is the place.

Our 3rd grader was struggling with virtual learning, she was getting behind in reading and writing.  We made the move to Carlisle mid-year; in just five weeks she has made dramatic improvements academically.  It is amazing the excitement she now has for reading and writing.  Everyone is so kind, she has made friends quickly and absolutely loves her teacher.  School is not a chore anymore!

Carlisle has always provided a safe and nurturing environment. Where challenging academics have been the norm, where team play, the stage, and other extracurricular activities have built confidence and the ability to work with others. Upon graduation, our children were more than prepared for college, academically and to lead with self-confidence and ability.
