“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.”
“The student and teacher relationships are special and helped me open up. It makes me feel comfortable and safer, knowing that the teachers are doing everything they can to help the students here succeed.”
“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.”
“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!”
“Our experience at Carlisle has been outstanding! With three children with three very different personalities enrolled, their individual learning needs, strengths, weaknesses, and interests are met in a friendly and supportive environment allowing them to grow and succeed.”
We support Carlisle because this is the type of educational environment that fosters our son’s love of learning. Carlisle is a very special place where we feel safe and secure knowing that the teachers love and care for our child the way we do. It has enhanced our son’s life in so many ways, and we wouldn’t have him anywhere else.
Carlisle feels like a family with dedicated faculty who work closely with each student. Our daughters are receiving an outstanding education and benefit greatly from the small class sizes.
