Our Mission Statement
The mission of Carl C. Icahn Charter School is to use the Core Knowledge curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch, to provide students with a rigorous academic program offered in an extended day/year setting. Students will graduate armed with the skills and knowledge to participate successfully in the most rigorous academic environments, and will have a sense of personal and community responsibility.
National Blue Ribbon
Hard work really does pay off! Our school is fortunate enough to share that we have been named a National Blue Ribbon School! This is a prestigious award given to schools who achieve academic excellence and close achievement gaps. Additionally, this is given to schools who create a safe and welcoming environment for their students. This year we had a big celebration to honor our school, which was held in Maestros with a carnival theme. Students were encouraged to circulate the room and play games to win prizes.
