Caro High School Reviews

Caro was a great town to grow up and go to school in. Caro High School was great. It offered a variety of classes, sports, and extra curricular activities. The teachers put in one-hundred percent of their effort to teach the students and help them to grow as individuals. Caro High School also does very well in preparing students for college and future life goals. However, there are a few things that I would change about Caro High School if I could. I believe that there could be a stronger focus on the arts programs. In addition, I would like to have had a greater variety of classes that thought life skills rather than just textbook information.

Caro offers a wide variety of extracurricular options. Of course there are sports including: Cheerleading, Football, Soccer, Baseball/Softball, Synchronized Swimming, Swim & Dive, Wrestling, Track, Cross Country, and many more. It also has clubs that range from being elite (invitation only) to ones that anyone can join; Key Club, Youth In Government, Rotary Club, Academic Games Clubs, A Cappella Club, National Honor Society, and Interact Club. Drama club is available and every year the school has a fall and a spring play for everyone to enjoy. Yearbook is a class that allows students to get creative while they capture the best pictures of the year! Other classes include Woods and Metals where students create amazing projects to take home and cherish forever. Caro even offers 3 foreign language classes that include French, German, and Spanish. My personal favorite is the music department which includes Marching Band/Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Choir. Every club is really popular and the administrators encourage people to join and help out with some of the organizations. Our teachers are great supporters of us.
I have had so many problems at Caro. Even since the fifth grade when they called parent protective services on my mom, even though i have the best mom in the world. My credits all through out my high school career have been a mess. I really can not stress the disorder that this school forces on the students.
