mission statement

As a collaborative Mount Carbon community, we inspire all children to embrace learning. Together we create a strong academic, social and emotional foundation; ensuring every child will be prepared for his or her future.


  • Mount Carbon is a high achieving school. Student social/emotional needs and interactions are also cultivated in a safe/nurturing learning environment.
  • Staff development is dedicated to implementing research based best instructional practices and technology in the classrooms.
  • Parents are actively involved through PTA and the Accountability Committee (PAC).

To be a data driven school, we continually assess students through formal and informal assessments to monitor progress and change instruction to meet student needs. Disaggregated data from a variety of sources are used to identify the level of instruction to target high achievable goals for all students. Assessment, in tandem with a guaranteed and viable curriculum, is used to pace student learning to ensure exposure to grade level content while maximizing student potential. Interventions and cluster grouping are provided to fluid student groups for targeted instruction based on specific skills to enhance learning.
