Carroll District and Curriculum
The Carroll Community School District is committed to a community based education, not only inside the classroom, but outside it as well. The district expects students to be critical thinkers and be able to solve problems on their own, however they are also expected to use the community as a resource and incorporate others into their learning process. This focus on success in the community continues in elective course offerings at the high school.
We currently cover the following Carroll-area school district: Carroll Community School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carroll District Curriculum
This community based view of education is best represented in the curriculum standards for speaking and listening. Every student is expected to participate in discussions and collaborate with others in language arts classes at every grade level. In addition, even the Iowa Core curriculum in math expect students to critique peers in discussions and engage in conversations to solve problems.
In an effort to promote student success and community involvement after they leave the classroom, Carroll High School offers a comprehensive agricultural curriculum off campus. Classes include sales and marketing that complement the standard core curriculum of hands on agriculture classes and prepare a student for a career. In addition, the agriculture program offers classes in accounting, law, business and finance to address common concerns in an agriculture business. Every student at the high school must enroll in a computer class to prepare them for life in the 21st century and the English department offers a media literacy course as an elective.

Chalk Talk: Junior College or Four-Year School?
Deciding to continue your education is an important decision and deciding where to go to school can make it a difficult one. One option that makes it easier is transferring from a junior college to a four-year school. Junior colleges are usually much less expensive, saving you money while you try to decide if college is right for you. Meanwhile you will be taking the same classes you would be taking as an underclassman at a university. Many times, universities have large classes with hundreds of students taught by a teaching assistant rather than a professor. At a junior college, classes are much smaller and taught by a professor so your education may feel less impersonal. Finally, many times junior colleges and universities have an agreement that makes it easier for a student from a junior college to transfer as a junior than it would to be admitted to that same school as a freshman. You may not have been able to get into your dream school out of high school, but can still graduate from it in the same length of time.
