The school had great programs and always encouraged students to challenge themselves to take higher level classes. The teachers are great and they will always help you. The teachers towards your senior year help you with your college applications and help you understand how it will work. Most of the assignments will be more college oreintended. The sports in the district are great. Kids go on to college sports, and the sports themselves are competitive and give you leadership skills. The food is not best, but it can be good sometimes.

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.
Carrboro High School is the cutest little hippie dippie public school around. Carrboro High School creates an environment that makes you feel welcomed and loved for exactly who you are, diversity is more than valued here. It is the perfect mix between a public school and hipster hot-spot. It’s amazing to be in such a diverse environment with such a bright student body, it makes me feel safe at school everyday.
