About Us

  • Carleton Elementary is a PK-5 school which places special emphasis on developing exceptional leadership skills and academic achievement. We are the district's first Leader In Me school which teaches the 7 habits of highly effective leadership to all students. Our school has 1:1 technology which means whefront of carleton n students are in the building, they have have daily access to laptops to use for instructional purposes and teachers use SMART interactive boards to enhance their lessons. In addition to providing a rigorous curriculum, we usually offer many extracurricular activities including Academic Games, Chess, Art, and Computers, however everything is on hold right now due to the health mandates. Likewise, we usually provide after school Title I tutoring but we are partnering with the Detroit Education Society to provide online tutoring to students as needed. We have many virtual and onsite services to support the social emotional needs of our students and families, one of which is a clinician from The Children's Center as well as our counselor. We want families to know that Carleton Elementary is truly committed to Elevating Expectations for Excellence every day!
