Carter Woodson School K-12

Mission

Bright & Committed, our students readily take up the challenge to…

Think Critically. Live Purposefully. Lead Courageously.

We are a community connected by the idea that every child should be given a sound education that not only prepares them for the future but is also encouraging and uplifting in an environment that is supportive at all times.

Committed to education and citizenship, we offer young leaders challenging opportunities in a nurturing environment strengthened by ethnic and cultural pride and empowered by our motto: “Strive to Excel Not to Equal.

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.
