Caribou High School Reviews

Caribou High School is an alright school. The staff is nice, and the school is supportive of kids no matter their race, religion, and/or sexuality. Every Thursday in the library, they have a GSTA club meeting (gay straight trans alliance). They have an amazing track, ski trails, soccer field, softball field, a weight-room, and a very large gymnasium. Their sports teams always excel and make the Caribou Vikings proud! The school provides a transition center that students can go to before, after, and during study halls to get help from retired teachers who act as tutors. When students need to retake a test or quiz, it is mandatory for them to go to the transition center to get help. This has helped students bring their grades from failing to A's and B's.

In conclusion, Caribou High School is a very good school and I am glad that I attend it.

Caribou high school seems to have many misconceptions surrounding it, yet I find it to be inclusive, united, and overall an enjoyable place to further your education. Our teachers are delightful and focus individually on each student to the best of their abilities. If you ask for help, you receive personalized help from teachers, councilors, or even administration. Besides academics, Caribou is always competitive and involved in sports, and clubs. In all, a positive and closely knit environment, friendly to outsiders.
Freshman and sophomore year had bad experiences with some teachers. Love the vocational/trade wing of the school and the opportunity to branch off to other schools trades!
