This is a great school to go to. Coming from someone who spent their entire K-12 school career in Carpinteria schools, I'd say this school really kept up with the quality and overall fun school experience. The classes can be tough at times, which is good college prep, and the teachers are top of the line. There's a big community aspect here, so the teachers really go over the top with giving their time and energy to their students. We have a new track, that hosts the statewide Russell Cup Trackmeet, which is the largets small school meet in California, which is amazing considering the size of our town/school. The sports programs and coaches are friendly and very available, and there's a lot of community support. Students can attend all sporting events for free or for $1 with ID in special cases. They have a good relationship with Santa Barbara City College as well, which is 15 minutes away and the BEST community college in the nation to go to.

I like Carpinteria High School because its small, I know everyones face and almost everyone's name. Their are college classes and AP classes offered, just because it's a small school doesn't;t meant it doesn't have those things and thats what I like. Maybe changes would be they should use the sprinklers more smartly but that all I can think of at this moment. Carpinteria High School not only gives the opportunity to speak up about stuff but also allows you to be heard and they want you to get into college so they notify you about classes that will help you and scholarships in the area that are being offered.
What I like about Carpinteria Senior High is that there is no drama. Not many students, so everyone knows you and you get to have good relationships with your teachers. Something I would like to change is the food and maybe get to have more school spirit.
