About The School
West Carroll Primary School is located in the community of McLemoresville and serves approximately 280 children in grades Pre-K through second. The building is located on a site that has been dedicated to education for many years. Bethel College was founded here in 1842 and used this location until it moved to McKenzie in 1872.
