Carlin Elementary Middle School

Hello and welcome to Carlin Elementary Middle School; Home of the Panthers. Carlin Elementary Middle School has experienced tremendous growth as a  school community.
Carlin is both an elementary and middle school with unique timetables, bell schedules, wings of the building and specific features for each.  However, we are proud to be a K-8 school that often comes together as one.
In the winter of 2017 a significant new addition, ten plus years in the making, was completed. This new addition has created a state of the art learning commons that serves the entire school. Students, staff and PAC at various times all had input into either the design, features, or furnishings to support a learning environment for 2018. As a part of the addition we also have a new multi-purpose/classroom, break out meeting room, teacher prep room and common area for our middle school students. Throughout the building there has been a committed focus to upgrade technology in the support of learning.
Carlin School serves the smaller communities of White Lake, Eagle Bay, Notch Hill, Blind Bay, Tappen, Skimikin and Carlin.  Students transition from Sorrento Elementary School to Carlin for their middle years (Grades 6,7 and 8).

We take great pride in being a community school and welcome all new students and community members.
