Message from Dr. Hamilton, Principal

Carter-Lawrence Math and Science Elementary Magnet School is a great place to learn and work. We place an emphasis on the integration of math and science across the curriculum. Kindergarten through fourth grade students have a myriad of learning experiences throughout the year to help them begin to understand the world through math and science. Carter-Lawrence equally emphasizes reading language arts skills, art, music, physical education and positive behavior. We are also proud to offer Chinese language and culture this year.

On a regular basis students participate in grade level or school-wide project based learning experiences and conduct research. Students transform from scholars to entomologists, cultural anthropologists, zoologists, explorers and more.

While continuing to focus on reading language arts skills, students at Carter-Lawrence have real world science and math lessons embedded in their school experiences. These include an annual Science Fair, science and math family nights and special projects.

Teachers and staff members at Carter-Lawrence work hard the help prepare students to do well in middle school and high school. Our goal is for students to graduate college and be career ready!

Dr. Karen Hamilton, Principal
