Carrollton goes virtual

Processed with VSCO with al6 preset

With COVID-19 rapidly spreading, Carrollton takes quick action and creates a virtual school for students to continue their learning online.

From schools to stores to beaches to parks, the COVID-19 quarantine is affecting everyone. Carrollton’s technology team has taken proactive measures to keep the school running virtually. “I prefer physical school…I personally am a visual learner so hearing lectures doesn’t help my studying,” wrote Chloe Kujawa ‘23. Students feel isolated due to quarantine, but there are some positives as well. “It’s a lot less stressful, I have more time to do things that I love and I feel like the workload we have is less which allows me to spend more time with my family,” wrote Mia Rodriguez ‘23.


Patty Cruz, mother of Isabella Cruz ‘23, commented, “I notice my daughter seems more relaxed and has much less stress than physically attending school, she has more free time to work, overall I think Carrollton is doing a great job and I do see an improvement in her work ethic and organization.”

Carrollton teachers are doing their best to make the most out of this new learning environment.  Mrs. Hernandez, IB Math SL and IB calculus teacher wrote, “I worry that some topics might get by students, and in person I can check that they understand the topic. But I enjoy learning about the technology and advancements that are available to me online.”
