Carlynton Jr/Sr High School is an average school and of small size. What I like the most about it are the variety of wonderful teachers, from witty and sarcastic ones, to serious and focused ones. Each teacher I have leaves a great impact on my life. Something I would like to see changed in the school is that the guidance department is lacking. The guidance counselor (we only have one for senior high) is backed up with so much work, and I think the best way to give students, especially seniors who rely greatly on the guidance counselors for the process of applying to college, is to hire another senior high guidance counselor to help with scpecifially juniors and seniors interested in college.

This school is best for small town feel, and teachers who know everyone and everything. You get more one on one and strong support for classes. The local tech school associated with this school is wonderful too. This school provides lots of opportunities to be diverse and obtain higher education. Like most schools there is always room for improvement. Like security and stuff like that. They need to bring their A game and step up security and safety in this district.
Get more with the times anything can happen. But the teachers are good and the administration is fine too.
All the students are friendly as long as you're friendly to them. The food could stand to have a bit more variety. Also, the teachers at the school do there best to make sure all students get good grades. They are even willing to stay after school just to help you! The work load is fairly average and easily digestible. With it being such a small school, you tend to grow closer to your classmates which is a great thing.
