Overall, Carthage Senior High School is a great school. The teachers are great and there is an amazing selection of classes and extracurricular activities. The school has a great STEM program with many different options for classes in those fields including an agricultural science program and a project lead the way program. While the STEM programs tend to excel at Carthage some of the other field can start to be left behind. This includes the music and arts program at the school. The music and arts program at the school is small but it is a good program with multiple programs including music, choral, art, and drama. There is many different clubs and activities that the school offers ranging from Key Club to Multi-Cultural Club and there is even a Skiing Club and a Trap Shooting Club. Carthage Senior High School is a great school with many different options for whatever any student would want from their high school.

The teachers are probably the best part of this school, and even then some of them have their flaws. This school had a lot of bullying, and RACISM from the students. I was called named like Ling-Ling (unwantedly) for my duration here. It's honestly unacceptable that they let this type of behavior thrive. The only thing people care about is sports. My experience here honestly gave me such a nightmare looking back at it. Please pick a different school system, your child probably will not like it here, especially if you are a POC. I wish I never went here, it was such a bad experience.
Carthage Central High School has a lot to offer when it comes to advanced classes and a variety of clubs. There are numerous AP classes which offer college credit as well as dual enrollment classes through the nearby community college. These classes are challenging but nothing a hard-worker can't handle. The expanding clubs available at Carthage are engaging and fun! I have been involved in several, including Sustainability Corps., Key Club, Art Club, Math League, and Science Olympiad.
