Caro High School was my second high school, I had moved my senior year from Pennsylvania. The teachers opened up to me my first day and created a strong relationship with me through out the year. The staff is very student oriented and wants to see every student be successful. I was able to seek help from all of my teachers and they were willing to talk to me about anything I needed. Caro High School focuses on excellence and will stop at nothing to make sure their students exceed expectation.

In my opinion, the best thing about Caro High School would be the teachers. For the most part, they all seem to actually have an urge to try and get to know their students. They relate to us in a way that you probably wouldn't see in most schools. The administration tries to interact with the students as well. However, the biggest thing I would like to see change at Caro High School would be the sport program. We seem to have a habit of hiring faculty as coaches rather than someone who would be more qualified. And it seems that the teams with non-faculty coaches tend to due better in their particular sport season.
Caro High School has a safe atmosphere with friendly faces. The sports programs need work. However, few sports have strong results. Teachers are helpful and personable. Unfortunately, Caro High School does not really prepare you for college. There are good AP programs and teachers. The food is absolutely horrendous, but the lunch ladies are kind. There are many clubs and activities to join that make Caro a fun place to learn.
