I have had excellent experiences at every level of schooling with Carteret County Schools. Now in my Junior year of high school, I feel that my education has been and continues to be academically rigorous and socially satisfying. There are numerous opportunities to become involved outside of academics that enhance my overall experience. I know that I am ready for a successful college experience and career because of my foundation with Carteret County Schools.

The teachers are wonderful and extremely attentive. The college is very cost effective for the type of education you are getting there. It is nice to know I may be getting a better education here for half the price than it would be to go to the universities around here. It's a wonderful experience and everyone is extremely willing to help and tutor even after hours. They push you to strive to succeed and make sure that you are on track even when they don't have to. I wish everyone treated their students as well as they do here at Carteret community college.
I preferred Onslow County Schools over Carteret because they prepared me for college better than any grade or teacher had at Carteret. Although more freedom of class choices were allowed at Carteret schools, Onslow prepared you for your career choice and allowed for a lot more resources for college than Carteret.
