Mid-Carolina High School Reviews

127 reviews
All Categories
Pros:Teachers and staff are friendly and supportive as long as you want to do well. Courses don't really prepare you for college. College is faster paced and more in depth. MC is pretty safe and clean compared to larger/more urban schools, and the building is only about 10 years old.
Sports-several notable athletes (baseball players) that played in college and/or went pro. CJ Edwards for example plays with the Cubs, and pitched in the World Series Championship. We don't do so well in other sports.
Cons:Food is gross, like most public schools. Bringing your own lunch is a good idea.
Social life- Cliques are a big thing and making friends is difficult. Most students seem stuck-up. Less humble than you would expect for a school placed between a cow pasture and a tape factory.

Mid-Carolina High is a very welcoming school, not all of the students are the best and we have our flaws but our academics are above average and a lot of the students stubs to do the best we can. The hallways are typically kept very clean and most students are very welcoming to anyone new that may come along. Most of the time student council and other student invoking clubs are eager to get other students to participate and try to have fun. We have great resources within the library and all of the teachers are usually really eager to help you with anything that you may need. We also have great guidance counselors and leaders of our school that will always take some time to help you with future college plans or hear about any of your concerns. I feel that this school is a great learning and physical environment for people to enroll their children for many generations to come.
I'm Tanisha Glasgow a senior at Mid-Carolina High School and I like that my school have a strict school policy because without that people would be wearing clothes that doesn't follow the school dress code, getting in more fights, disrespecting teachers and students, bullying, etc. My overall experience have been great so far and its a great school to attend. I would like to see more people at school to have more school spirit and more parents to help volunteer I helping the school with activites, and the food could be much better. I love my school and I support everything they do.
