Carson City-Crystal Area Schools Reviews

Overall, my experience at Carson City was good. The downfalls of the school are: lack of nonathletic activities & clubs, gross food, and half the teachers don't teach well, or do not care. There is a lack of diversity, because Carson City is a small, and mostly white town. The sports teams are very good. Most students are involved in sports, or the few clubs we have. Students at the school are a lot nicer and accepting than students at other schools, but it can still be hard to make new friendships. Safety is pretty good at the school. Doors are locked during school hours, and parents/guests have to ring a bell and be approved by the office to get in. Some of the administration is really bad, but some are good. The school does not have air conditioning, which sucks because the school starts a lot earlier in the summer than other schools.

I love the team spirit shown! I would love to see more of a love for learning. People their just seem so sweet and welcoming, you have different kinds of clubs and sports. Its really exciting to see teachers actually having a joy and happiness ready to teach. Parents here are very supportive and quick to help whenever they can. I do wish people would follow the dress code a little better.
I loved going to school here because it was small. You could get one on one time with the teachers. I would change the way it is ran they are very strict and power hungry at this school. Sports were great when I was there but have currently went down hill.
