I enjoyed Carthage High School because it was a very small school. None of my classes had more than 20-30 students in them, making it very easy to get a one on one connection with the teachers. The Friday night football games were an event that everyone in the town would attend!

Love everything about my school. We represent East Texas here because of how many State Champions rings we have won. But there is more than that. It's what brings us together. The staff, teachers, students, parents, and our community. Here, we are family. I thanks all of my friends and teachers that help me and were there with when I struggled. Everyone had their ups and downs, but we are all bulldogs, we over fight our fears and troubles. Each day, we get stronger and reach to the stars , go outer space.
The staff was very great ranging from amazing teachers all the way to amazing coaches. The coaches at CHS are very dedicated and inspirational to their athletes and encourage athletes to aspire to become better. WIth the coaching program of CHS you can't go wrong. CHS also offers a wide variety of academic choices to achieve. CHS allows students to take courses at the college for a discounted price, they also host many AP courses to get you college credits to pass the AP test. THe staff will fully equip you to pass the test.
