My kid went to this school for 9 years and learned so much stuff. The teachers and principals were fab, especially the the connections teachers who really did good. My kid got a lot of attention but still didn't get the top scores after all the hard work he/she has done. Just goes to show how competitive school here can be! I love this school and everything in it.

I couldn't imagine a better private or public school than Carlisle. Walking through the doors is like a warm embrace. The administration, teachers, and parent volunteers are amazing. When you walk into the office there is a cork board with hundreds of name tags....those are all of the parent volunteers! My son has had some challenges and they have spared no expense or time to help him achieve his potential. We've been offered better jobs out of state but refuse to leave because we know how amazing this school and community are for our children!

It's a great K-8 experience with a real sense of community. The kids grow up together, often from preschoolers to teenagers!

The fact that two reviews here mention Marie Doyle makes me suspicious. While there are many great aspects to the Carlisle School, it is not universally agreed that Ms. Doyle is one of them.

Carlisle Public Schools is amazing! My children are using technology to improve their math and reading starting in kindergarten! Ms. Doyle, the superintendent, has worked with the community to build key programs: elementary world language, after school STEM clubs, middle school Chinese and more. Ms. Hurley, the principal, is so supportive and helpful, and the community loves her! She greets the children each morning as they get off the busses and visits classes to say hello. Ms. Slack, the Student Services Director, really wants to help children succeed by providing support. The teachers are really fantastic and make learning fun even while challenging the children to think. The staff is also available to students and engage in fun learning such as Outdoor Education and a trip to New York City. This is a super school and we know this because our children are SO WELL prepared for the high school!

Carlisle Public Schools is a true gem. I attended 9 years of education there and feel like it set the ground work for an amazing future. The teachers are top notch, the music prograrm is unrivaled, and the atmosphere is stable and serene. Any parent who is priviledged enough to send their child to CPS is very fortunate.
