About Our School
    School Mission
    • At Carr Intermediate School, our schoolwide instructional focus is on writing expository text across the curriculum. Our goal at Carr is for each student to improve his or her score on the California Standards Tests and the Santa Ana Unified School District's Writing Proficiency Test by one level. We are working hard to make this happen, and our Academic Performance Index demonstrates this, with five consecutive years of significant growth. Carr is a school that is reaching new heights of academic performance!
