Carteret High School Reviews
Carteret High has been a journey to say the least. This school was built on conflict, drama, and stress. Although, what really makes Carteret High a good school are it’s teachers. Some of the teachers in this school make me come back every weekday!
My overall experience in Carteret High School and being a junior student enrolled there for the past few years has been interesting. Due to the fact the school is diversed and everyone there is trying to find their careers because high school is like a preview on real world. Most times you would be on your own and have to educate yourself on the things you have to get ready for especially college. Most likely you didn't have a helping hand cause your mostly forced to obtain information by asking questions . However, one reason I didn't like the high school was that we weren't really taught more about the different professions for those who thought about life outside of High school. Which made it extremely hard for me to really know what I wanted to major in college.
Carteret High School did their very best in ensuring students had opportunities. When it came to education and applying to colleges, the guidance counselors were very attentive and students were not forgotten once their job was done. They ensured the process was going well, any help or questions needed after applications were submitted. College and technical schools were pushed and so were we. Students were not left behind and I think that is very important. Extracurricular activities were readily available and so were sports. The school was decently funded and the academic programs need to maybe be a little better but the job gets done. All in all, the school did their best with what they were given and that was I think was so important about this school.
