Carbondale Area School District Reviews

In Carbondale Area, the education given is very good, maybe even outstanding. Our sports, I would say are very fun, however, not taken very seriously. Such as the clubs we have. They can be very fun, but with just a little more effort from the teachers and the students, can be something extraordinary. The teachers are very good at their job, although, sometimes are very into the lives of the students which can get a little weird in my opinon. They are nice to talk to but to some extent. Overall, a nice time and Carbondale Area has taught me the values of education and the values of working hard to get far as a person. They teach respect and much more and helped shape the person I am today.

Carbondale is a very average school. It doesn't lack much but it doesn't particularly shine anywhere. The school body overall is fairly calm, considering the lack of school uniforms. I myself never really had to deal with any problems with the kids. We do have a couple AP classes and our engineering and tech departments aren't too bad. Our art departments are loosing funding and staff and I feel there are several missed opportunities just from attending the school. I feel the largest problem of the school is a lack of challenge. We never have outstanding students coming out of the school ar any great athletes or artists. I feel this is just form a large lack of funded, challenging departments.
Great teachers and staff. They really care about the students and do their best to teach well, especially in the elementary school. The nicest teachers and aids.
