Concord Carlisle High School Reviews

165 reviews

I am a 2018 graduate of CCHS and after completing one year of college I have realized how toxic CC was for me. People focus so so much on academics and doing 100 extracurriculars so they will get into ivy league schools. People are extremely stressed to the extent that mental illness is very common. Almost every one of my friends either had depression or anxiety and I believe the school environment contributed to that. The classes are challenging which is good but college is much easier than any class I took at CCHS. There is so much emphasis on taking AP classes to the point that students will only take them just to compete with other students. Overall, CCHS has wonderful academics but the school has a toxic culture. Either you are a student who cares a lot about your work or you skip classes and barely graduate.

Concord Carlisle is a great high school that provides lots of opportunities to learn and explore. The classes, especially the elective ones for upperclassmen, are very interesting, and the vast majority of teachers are engaging and passionate about what they teach. There are also plenty of extra-curricular activities for all different ranges of interests. While some policies and programs could still be improved, the administration is usually very good about listening to its students and working to make the school a better place.
I think that when it comes to academics, it is overall a good school; however, the culture surrounding homework, work ethic, and stress are extremely toxic. Despite the occasional rise to attention that the toxic stress culture has, the school is quick to present impossible options to reduce stress. Most students find it laughable, and they generally fall into two categories of student. One is the extremely hard working/high achieving/ mildly sheltered type, and the other vapes in the bathroom during lunch and skips classes. With the occasional outlier, these are the two largest categories of student type.
