“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.”

“The communications that come out always keep me in the loop and the teachers are absolutely AMAZING with ensuring Cameron is on the path to success. At Carlisle, Cameron has been able to flourish with small class sizes, a nurturing staff that is genuinely connected to each and every student, and the rigorous academics. We are proud to be part of the Carlisle family!”

“[Transferring to Carlisle] is the best decision we could have made for our boys. Our Chandler has flourished so much.  As a parent, nothing makes my heart happier than to feel we made the right move for our child.”

Mom to Chandler & Tanner

“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!”

Katherine Hall

Mom to Hunter & Emma

“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.”
