Ronda Carrie, Principal



The education of young children has been my passion since I was a camp counselor on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, NH. At that time I was teaching children to waterski, sail, swim and live cooperatively on Bear Island. Following my graduation from Salem State University, I taught second, third and first grade. A few years later I earned my Masters in Administration and Supervision from Plymouth State University. This marks my 21st year as an administrator, spanning NH, MA and CT. Early childhood has been my focus the last ten years in CT, initially as the principal of a PK-K school, followed by five years at a PK-2 school.

I am beyond thrilled to be joining the amazing staff, students and families of Coventry Grammar School in my role as principal. Embracing high expectations, while honoring the whole child, is the pathway to success for all students. Coventry Grammar School is a joyful, caring and compassionate schoolhouse that promotes and celebrates the growth and achievement of every child. We recognize the need and value of individualizing instruction. Parents and family members are valued as genuine partners in our work whose voice, input and participation is sought when making decisions that impact our school community.

Scholars at Coventry Grammar School will explore math and science, cherish a good book and create stories beyond our wildest imagination. They will form friendships that may last a lifetime and engage in activities that will foster a love of learning. I am just a phone call, email or “drop by” away. I look forward to knowing you and your family.
