Welcome to Carlson High ... We're "Charting the Course for the Future"


Welcome Back for the 2016-2017 School Year

Carlson will be offering three courses next year through Monroe Community College.  We call these courses our direct college courses because they bring college courses to Carlson's campus.  All of these courses are free to students, on campus (one course is a hybrid due to the nature of the course), offered in the morning (to allow for our students who are involved in extracurricular activities and who have jobs), and were selected because they are the most applicable and transferable courses to an associates or bachelors degree.
The first course we are offering is Intro to English Composition I (ENG 151).  This course is an entry level college composition course designed to expose students to the writing that will be expected in all of the college courses they eventually take.  
The second course we are offering is Intro to Humanities (HUMAN 151).  This course is a humanities course designed to expose students to drama, art, music, sculpture, architecture, and philosophy.  It is designed to give students the vocabulary to discuss each of these areas and how it is reflective of humanity.  This course is one that is a frequent requirement of many colleges and universities.
The third course we are offering is the Intro to Automotive Service course designed to be the beginning of earning an associates degree in Automotive Service Technology (the overall goal is to have students be certified Automotive Service Technicians).  This course is a hybrid course that is offered on Carlson's campus for one class a week and at MCCC's state-of-the-art automotive lab for the remainder of the classes.  
We intend to offer more college courses during the second semester of the 2016-2017 school year based on the demand for these courses and even more courses during the 2017-2018 school year with the ultimate goal of having students earn an associates degree or have the most amount of transferable classes towards a student's bachelor's degree for FREE.  
If you are interested in the direct college program, please email Jessica Shultz (principal) at
Intervention Period
During the 2016-2017 school year, Carlson has added a half hour intervention period designed to provide targeted remediation and enrichment to students so that we are meeting students where they are at to take them where they need to go and challenge all students at appropriate levels.
