Dual Curriculum at Carlson Elementary
Carlson Elementary is one of four elementary schools that offers two different curriculums to our school community: Classic programming and *Traditional programming. Families residing within the Carlson Elementary attendance boundaries who register their child/children will be enrolled in the Classic program with the option of completing an interest form for the Traditional program. Enrollment in the Traditional program will exist if space permits.
Families that reside outside of the Carlson Elementary attendance boundaries and are interested in their child/children attending, must complete an Open Enrollment Application to request an attendance boundary change. Information on the process of Open Enrollment and the application can be found at Elementary Open Enrollment.

The CTA program uses the phonics-based Spalding English Language Arts and the Saxon and Glencoe math programs. The math is advanced one grade level above the student’s assigned grade level. The CTA program focuses on developing a solid foundation of fundamental and higher-level thinking skills through a structured curriculum that is consistent within each grade level and sequential throughout the grades.
