Overall, I have had a relatively positive experience in the NACS school district. The majority of the classes I've taken have been honors classes, and they have offered an academic challenge that will most likely be beneficial to rigor I may have to face in college. In my personal experience with NACS, one of its best characteristics has been the arts programs. I am a photography student, and I have had an exceptional experience in the program, which I believe is almost entirely in result of my amazing teacher. All the fine arts teachers are well-trained, experienced, and willing to be there for their students. I am also a band student. I am very grateful for the opportunities that are available through the NACS band program. The jazz program, especially is flourishing, both in schools, and in the surrounding community in general. One thing NACS may need to work on would be continuation of seeking to decrease drug/alcohol use. It would be very beneficial to the student body.
Carroll High School is a very prestigious school that challenges its students in every aspect; academics, sports, arts, clubs, and extracurricular activities. Examples of the unique challenges offered at Carroll is their Organic and Biochemistry class, or their debate teams.
Its esteemed stature can only be provided through the staff. Being a former student myself I can say that from art classes to history, the faculty and staff approach teaching from various perspectives to encourage, motivate, and open the eyes of students to the world.
