I give Carter County Schools 4 stars because of Hampton High's Architecture and Engineering class taught by Daniel Arnett.

I graduated from a Carter County school and I wish I would have had more college prep. The school did not push me to be the best I can be. I liked the freedom at the time, but if I could go back I would have done things differently. I would have went somewhere that put academics first, to the football team.
I was in rolled with the carter county since the age of five. I feel as though they provide me a wonderful education. I loved my teacher and though that they cared very much for my well being. I am happy to say I attend a carter county school.
