The best part about Carrollton High School is its multitude of opportunities for student involvement. From service clubs to sports to the arts, this high school is the best I've been to by far--and I'm a military kid who's seen seven different systems in six different states. At this school, 99% of the teachers genuinely care for their students, and it's easy to make friends and fit in. If I have one complaint about CHS, it's that the school seems to spend SPLOST tax money on superfluous things that are more show-offy than necessary: for instance, a helicopter landing pad for visiting football scouts, or a massive courtyard that serves no purpose other than campus beautification, instead of funding better cafeteria food or buying new instruments for the marching band. Overall, I think this school is excellent for students both academically and socially, and I loved my time there.
As a graduate of the school, I've seen a lot of things that I took for granted when I was attending there. The school does make a genuine effort to make sure every student feels safe and is prepared to graduate. It's definitely one of those places where you can get lost in going through the motions since the school is so large, but the experience is what you make of it. The amount of clubs and activities for students to join is pretty large and it's not hard to find people who are interested in the same things. Academically, the school is improving in terms of classes students have to choose from, but still has a while to go when it comes to a few of the teachers themselves. Some teachers will go the furthest they can to make sure every student is helped and held accountable, and some others will let you pass just if you play a sport that they like. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there, I just wish I could have seen more attempts from administration to raise student involvement.
