Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Reviews

Chapel Hill High School fosters an extremely safe and encouraging learning environment for students of all backgrounds. The majority of the teachers here are supportive and are extremely skilled at their respective subjects. The school is by far one of the best public college preparatory schools in the country, with one of the highest average SAT scores for public schools. The student body is also extremely supportive of each other, bullying is infrequent and everyone helps each other out. The only downsides to this school is the 60 year old building, with mold and constantly breaking air conditioners and heaters. The administration has also been mishandling situations and causing the best teachers to leave for other schools. Overall, the school has been a great experience, and the only thing holding it back from 5 stars is the crumbling infrastructure of the buildings and the administration.

I have been in the Chapel Hill Carrboro School system for 10 years now, from kindergarten to 9th grade. My elementary middle and high school are all next to each other and very close to my house. The teachers are very good but the food in the cafeterias could be improved. Also the bathrooms in the schools could use an update. But the high school is updating the main building to make it more eco friendly.
I like that Chapel Hill High School has an abundance of student clubs and activities to participate in, though I wish it had an agricultural program so that students can participate in FFA. I like that my school offers many CTE classes and the AP classes are open to anyone. However, I feel that the academic cultures of Chapel Hill High and East are very competitive. Students are encouraged to take as many honors and AP classes as they can fit into their schedules. Over-stress and ultra- heavy course loads are encouraged at my school. Also, the school needs new buildings because there is mold.
