Upper School

SCHOOL DAY: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

The upper school of Carrollwood Day School, opened in August 2006 with grades 9 and 10. We celebrated the graduation of our first senior class in 2009. Carrollwood Day School is recognized for excellence in academics and character education. The upper school continues this tradition, guided by the high academic standards and moral and performance character traits that are central to the International Baccalaureate programmes of study.

Upper school students enjoy the richness of opportunity that comes from being part of a small school with large school programs. With a maximum enrollment of only 400, each student is counted on to come out for a team, help plan and support events, get involved in service initiatives -- simply, be an active, involved member of the community. Academically, the same advantage exists.
