Carter High School believes every child deserves the opportunity to learn in a safe, technology driven, school with opportunities for each to grow and express themselves freely.
Carter High has not received the same funding for elaborate buildings, new tech software or sports facilities- but Carter’s administration staff and teachers has made the very best of what they have been given to work with.
Encouraging students to express freely as individuals and reach their potential at graduation is the schools motto-
It is my hope this school will be recognized as a leader in school faculty
harmony and student excellence.
Just imagine, if a school like this can thrive on little to no facility advances -
What it could become if it too had access to the very best -

Carter High School was definitely an experience I won't forget. I lost some friends, but then I made some. Those Friday nights under the lights were probably the best nights. My teachers are pretty great, and they have helped me get to where I am trying to go and meet my academic goals. High school has taught me life lessons that will be forever stuck with me.
The school environment is what you would see in a typical high school movie; cliques everywhere! That's definitely one of the things that I didn't enjoy so much at Carter. You aren't always included.
That being said, the best thing about Carter was definitely the teachers! The teachers at Carter agree so incredible! I built so many incredible bonds with my teachers there, and I honestly wouldn't be who I am today without them.
