My time at Cartersville has changed tremendously from the time I moved here in 7th grade. The real changes came once I started high school. I have never really had a bad experience at Cartersville. Obviously, every day is not going to be your best day even though that might be what you plan on it being. I started to get more involved with more friends last year when I made the varsity baseball team. I have nothing but good memories with those seniors and I wanted my senior year to be just as fun. Cartersville does a great job with making the seniors feel like seniors and treating us the way we want to be treated. Just having certain privileges like leaving school for lunch and getting out for minimum day make it a fun experience. The only thing I might change about Cartersville High School would be changing the schedule to a block schedule.

Cartersville high school is the best high school ever. Considering it's the only high school I've been to I'm kind of biased. But Cartersville high school compared to the surrounding school is outstanding. The classes are difficult but every person is provided with the time and materials to do great in every class. Our grandma took rate just recently reached 89.2 percent! On top of academic,which always comes first, our sports and extra curricular activities houses some of the best students in the nation. Over all Cartersville high school and the whole Cartersville schools system is a great system to learn at.
I transferred to Cartersville High School late my freshman year. My experience with the academics was better than the school I left, but there are still teachers that don't teach. I had a few experiences where the teaching was lackluster and the lack of resources left me unable to improve my situation. However, my experience was balanced out by a good atmosphere, teachers who care, and good extracurricular and elective opportunities.
