“At Carlisle, I’ve found that you will not only get an education you can be proud of while having teachers that truly care about you, but you will also always be part of a family here.”

“I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Carlisle school through two different perspectives, one as a faculty member and more recently as a parent. I have come to think less of it as a job and more as an intellectual opportunity. It has provided me with a great educational foundation that I want for my own children. In fact, we enrolled our daughter in the preschool program this year and it was a decision that has validated our feelings about the Carlisle Experience.”

Juliana Carter

Mom to Maryn

“We have been very pleased with Carlisle’s methods of teaching. We are truly delighted with how our children are embraced, nurtured, and supported by the staff and teachers. Our children are excited to go to school and learn new things each day.”
