Overview written by the school: The mission of Rachel Carson High School is to provide every student with a student-centered and rigorous curriculum that fosters critical thinking. We seek to ensure that each student displays grit, perseverance and empathy, is prepared for college or the world of work and has a post-graduation plan, is able to productively collaborate with peers, is open to new experiences, and is environmentally conscious.
