Carroll high school is very academically rigorous and challenges students to think in many different perspectives. There are a large array of class options to choose from and the school offers many college readiness classes such as AP and Dual Credit classes. I took many of these and as such am more prepared for college than the average student; I have also saved money in attending college as I received college credit for taking AP classes. The teachers at Carroll high school care greatly about their students and for the most part, this is very apparent. The social side of Carroll high school isn't bad either, while there are cliques, the atmosphere at Carroll is generally inviting and quite friendly. Overall, Carroll high is a pretty decent school!

I have overall enjoyed my time at Carroll High school. The teachers and counselors with classes, questions, and preparing for after college. The school is a very safe environment and there are always people around me that care. I also have experiences great involvement in my school through sports, activities, and clubs. I have even been given the opportunity to lead activities and clubs! The school is excellent in academics as well. The courses are challenging at times but possible and with studying and the help of teachers, there is rarely reason to worry about academics.
Carroll High School has a large variety of classes offered, and has a friendly staff, although the school worships its athletes and writes off its intellectuals too quickly.
As far as extracurricular activities go, there is a good balance between academic clubs and athletics (although the latter is more appreciated and more well funded)
Finally, in terms of diversity, well, the school has none. A white, conservative, intolerant population unfortunately dominates the halls.
In terms of safety, well, unfortunately there have been several students who intended to perform school shootings, although luckily they were caught and arrested before they performed such deeds. However, the school administration tried to cover the whole thing up. Shameful!
