Carroll High School is a school in Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States. It is part of the Northwest Allen County Schools and is accredited by the North Central Association.

History

Indiana school reorganization

The Indiana General Assembly passed the Indiana School Reorganization Act of 1959, which required school districts with fewer than 2,000 students to consolidate with nearby districts. This resulted in the three Allen County townships of Lake, Eel River and Perry combining into Northwest Allen County Schools (NACS). At that time, high schools existed in Arcola and Huntertown. The NACS school board voted to combine the two high schools in 1967 into a single newly built school south of Huntertown.[5] The new high school, which opened in 1969, was named after Carroll Road, a rural arterial road that connects U.S. Route 33 and State Road 3 in northern Allen County.

Farmland to suburban boom

Booming enrollment from the suburban sprawl of nearby Fort Wayne into Perry Township caused NACS to build Carroll Middle School (CMS) adjacent to the main high school in 1984. By the fall of 2004 as enrollment continued to increase, the school district built other middle schools (including a new Carroll Middle School), and the old CMS was absorbed into Carroll High School as its "freshman campus."[5]

General information

The school opened in 1969 and constructed additions to the facility in 1992 and 1996. A freshman campus was created in 2005.
