I went to Carolina High School from 9th grade to 12th grade. I had the best years there! The principal is the best in Greenville County Schools. It’s so much school spirit all around. It’s some amazing students / children that attend Carolina. The teachers are ALWAYS there if in need of anything. This school shows so much love. I’m a proud CHS Alummi ’18

I absolutely love my school! I have had many experiences at this school that I know that I can not get at any other school in my county. The connection the faculty and staff have with the students is indescribable. It feels as though we are all one big happy family of different races and cultures. The environment is very welcoming and everyone is able to express themselves. The academics are great and it is very evident that teachers and administration make sure that each student is on the right path for what they would like to do after high school, whether that is to go straight into the workforce or to go to college.
I stepped through the doors and there was Mr. Delaney, a nice, genuine, down-to-Earth kind of man who spoke to me everyday and actually meant it. Mr. Delaney is the principal of Carolina Academy, and I believe that there couldn't have been a better choice. He's the type of administrator that will pop up to your house if you've started to miss too many days of school. He tries his best to make sure every single student is accommodated and that we never felt left behind even if all one needed was extra help. My two years were filled with a lot of love and support from the faulty and administrators at Carolina Academy. I love my Carolina family and the administrators because the project started in house and improved the school as a whole that way. I wish that the demographics could change because Carolina Academy doesn't receive the amount of the praise that it deserves because of the location. The faculty truly care about where you'll end up right after graduation.
