Charles Carroll School No. 46 is a learning community in which each classroom strives to make the language of thinking a permanent part of the learning environment. Staff, students, parents, and volunteers work together to develop students who have a positive attitude toward learning and are committed to meeting high expectations both academically and socially. Our goal is to instill a “love of learning” in all students so that they will become lifelong learners. Our School Improvement Plan and instructional program place an emphasis on literacy and math. Students’ individual learning styles and needs are honored and student achievement is promoted through curriculum, instruction, assessment and staff development aligned to the Common Core Standards.

• An uninterrupted literacy block of two hours is provided daily, including Readers and Writers Workshop. Leveled reading materials support instruction and independent reading by students.
• An uninterrupted math block of one hour is provided daily for Math Workshop. The Enrichment Program offers opportunities for accelerated math at the intermediate level.
• Computer lab is accessible daily by all students. Compass and Lexia computer programs support math and reading and provide activities for acceleration.
• Intervention in a responsibility of all staff members; the team works collaboratively to meet the diverse needs during the designated intervention block as well as during daily classroom instruction.
• Values-based character education is offered through PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies).
• Intensive Artist in Residence Program is offered school wide each spring. Visual Arts program showcases student work in local exhibits.
• Community partners are a valued resource at School No. 46. Vounteers from area colleges, businesses and community agencies provide one-on-one instructional support for students and reading instruction in an extended-day program two days a week and during the summer. Xerox Science Consultants conduct hands-on science lessons to enhance student learning. In addition, Larsen Industries helps move a "going green" initiative, the City of Rochester Recreation Department hosts an after-school program and Junior Achievement conducts focused lessons in classrooms.
