Mr. John Carroll

My name is John Carroll and I am the School Counselor at Oaks Road Elementary School.  I have 26 years of experience as a counselor and this is my 18th year that I have been blessed to work at Oaks Road Elementary School.


I can be reached at 252-514-6475. I can also be reached at through email at  Students that are learning remotely can ask to talk to me by emailing me and giving times that work for them to be seen on zoom. 

The Counseling program at Oaks road consists of individual, small group and classroom guidance lessons.  Classroom guidance lessons are coordinated with your child's teacher and lessons are developed around the character education words of the month and the North Carolina guidance essential standards.  These standards are based on social and emotional, cognitive and career goals that are developmental in nature.  Even in kindergarten it is important in our changing world for students to start to think about potential jobs or careers they will have in the future.

If you have a concern for your student feel free to call the school.  I can also be reached through the new email at
