What Our Parents Are Saying
“Carlisle’s distance learning has been so beneficial in the education of my children during this time. With daily lesson plans, video sessions, and communications between parents and teachers, the quality of their education at home is far beyond what I could have imagined. I am grateful for what Carlisle and the teachers have done to make sure a high standard of learning is maintained, even when it has to be at home.” – Ashley Frith
“Carlisle’s distance learning program has been amazing! The teachers and staff have done a phenomenal job using technology and apps such as Zoom to communicate, collaborate, and individualize instruction for each student while we’ve been at home. Because they have continued to offer both a comprehensive program and constant support for students and parents, I feel that both my first grader and preschooler have continued to thrive and that they will be prepared for the upcoming school year!” – Brittany Beckett
