Education and citizenship are our vital concerns. The Carter G. Woodson School is a place where every child is taught in a challenge-friendly, nurturing, and constructive learning environment. At Carter G. Woodson, every child is respected and every child is expected to learn, to grow, to be the best that he or she can be.


We believe that all children are due the very best of what we can offer them: a high-quality and sound education in a positive, consistent environment that enables students to identify and strengthen their skills, develop a sense of self-worth, live fruitful and fulfilling lives, and decide what roles they will play as future leaders of our ever-changing global world.

At the Carter G. Woodson School, we believe in our young people and hold high expectations that they will always ‘strive to excel, not equal.’
