No discrimination, no bullying, great educators, large variety of elective classes, arts, agriculture, music, JROTC, engineering, nursing, etc. Small schools, with great teacher/student ratio. Multiple extra curricular activities, with several clubs and sports activities. Anything from golf, track, and the big three. Clubs from Graphic novels to Beta. The people of the community are very supportive of the schools and students. Good discipline codes, and much effort is made to ensure students have a safe learning experience with screening procedures,And school security persons. The Superintendent and school board are interesting in what both students and parents have to say. They consider all aspects of a situation and work together for a solution to any problems. Free lunch program for all students, with nutritious meals Provided to all students. Good communication systems between bus drivers and schools. No school uniforms, a dress code within reason for all students.

Amazing staff! Great student teacher relationships inside and outside of school. Safe environment. I have made lots of friendships in my years in the carter county school system. The Carter County school system went above and beyond to celebrate the class of 2020 also.
Carter County Schools are achieving the goals that they have set forth. The one thing that lacks is the inconsistency of rules and consequences. For the most part there are some excellent teachers, but there are some employees that need to move to different careers. Not everyone has a love for education that is needed to prosper. But in my opinion, the state has failed the school system by focusing too much on testing and not learning styles. If children were taught by their learning styles, they could comprehend so much better on the necessities that they need. Too many students in the state of Ky are left by the wayside. Teachers can not teach properly with the amount of duties and expectations that are placed upon them.
