Carterville High School was a pretty decent school overall. But, there were some major issues in general that need to be touched on. Most of the student body was stuck up. There was also no diversity at all. The grading scale was absolutely ridiculous. Even though most colleges base your grades on a 4.0 scale, Carterville was on a strict 5.0 scale. On the other hand, bullying was always handled promptly and the teachers tried to help you as much as possible.
Carterville High School is truly a great environment for your child to make memories. The teachers there are absolutely superb, trying their best to help students do the best they can in life. Academically, this school is one of the best in the area(in my opinion) and also prioritizes the safety of their students as well. I would not only recommend Carterville High School, but the whole district to anyone looking for a nice school for their child.
