I love Carnegie! As an African American woman who is accustomed to low-quality schools, teachers, and supplies, Carnegie had exposed me to the bright side of school! I have no drama in my personal life at all at Carnegie. The students are very helpful and intelligent!
Review Carnegie Vanguard High School
The enviornement at Carnegie was amazing. Everyone was very supportive, including the students. You could leave your phone on a charging station and it would still be there by the end of the day. The teachers are there to help you and they really do prepare you for college. The counselors really try to help you with scholarships and college. Since the school is relatively small, it is easy to get the help you need. You have to sacrifice getting that typical high school experience and prepared to work really hard if you choose this school. It is worth it in the end.
As a junior of Carnegie, I've been here for a good three years and as of now the way things are being run within in the school is pretty fine. We have a very strong student based administration who primarily focus on the importance of providing food, money and more activities for the students. The teachers here at Carnegie tend to go above and beyond to help each individual student to obtain the necessary education that is provided towards them and our administration does a great job of a tackling school issue: cheating, bullying and dealing with outside disturbances. The only thing that I would like to see change is a more diverse amount of students, because as of now there are are only a few African American and Hispanic students pre grade
