    Our School

    Welcome from the superintendent

    Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! We are excited to serve you, your children, and the Carthage community. The Carthage R-9 School District serves over 5,000 students daily on our 12 campuses. We believe each child is provided a quality education and has the opportunity to take advantage of multiple academic programs. District personnel are devoted to “Inspiring Excellence” in each student we serve. We consider the trust parents and the community place in us challenging but also rewarding and promise to do our best to ensure we achieve excellence. Our community and surrounding area continue to grow as families are choosing to raise and educate their children in the Carthage R-9 School District. We continue to be the “destination district” to many parents and staff.

    Great things occur every day in our district. We believe Carthage children receive a challenging, rigorous, and demanding education second to none. We appreciate the support of our community and look forward to a great school year.
