CTTL is an amazing experience. It afforded me impossible opportunities.
Their funding, care, technology, and size helps.
Watch the parents. Just like Pageant moms. They all want students to succeed. Personal beliefs interrupt healthy relationships. I can't speak for everyone, though.
Always lean on the counselor & teachers you trust. Let them help you mature . This being a college campus (and the course work being so heavy) you will be stressed. Family is best kept far from dysfunctional negativity from yourself.
At it's inception, CCTL was not an average school. It was exceptionally tense, rigid, power-fluxing, and naive. It was also warm, exciting, and inspiring. They are supportive, creative, charming, fulfilling, and heartfelt.
Students keep to their studies. Teachers are not necessarily political. Student groups inspire growth. Routine is established. Support structures are strong. Legacy is awe inspiring. Learning is not squandered.
This is the best opportunity in Iredell Co.

I love this school for the pure reason that it is focused on the students. The principle and staff truly want all to succeed. They offer tutoring and help in any way possible. The staff is also welcoming and easy to talk to. Teachers you had your freshman year will remember your name and always be there when needed. The school has a counselor that is trained and prepared to not only help in the academic realm, but is there for personal guidance as well. The school is also an early college high school. With great effort, the school pays for two years of college credits for free for all students who attend the school. They are focused on giving kids, who are at risk of not being able to attend college, the opportunity to gain a meaningful education locally.
Going to CCTL was a beneficial experience. I'm getting my A.A. for free which is incredible! It's fairly stressful balancing high school and college at the same time, but it's worth it. I honestly can't think of anything specific that I would like to see changed at the school. The administration requires us to do a lot of time consuming, unnecessary things, but that's about it.
