Students and staff are very accepting and kind. Teachers, staff, counselors, the nurse, the administration all go out of their way to support students. I have been able to take challenging AND fun classes as well as be involved in a variety of activities in which I am interested! When I wanted to create the new art club, staff volunteered right away to make sure it could happen!

I loved Cary-Grove! I have made so many friends through participating in activities. The great part, I would argue the best part, is that everyone is involved in everything! There are choir students on the varsity football team, for example. Also, the teachers are amazing, and they want you to succeed.
There is such a great sense of community among the teachers and students at CG. For being such a small school, it has amazing school pride and the teachers are super helpful! I wish there was more diversity/ international focus, because the only problem besides the air conditioning I see lacking is that many students don't get a great enough view of the rest of the world/ exploring other types of people and culture, but that's not super important when looking at the overall school as a whole! We be CG! And Go Trojans!
