    Carson High School

    Carson City School District, NV,

    9-12,

    378 Niche users give it an average review of 3.7 stars.

    Featured Review: Senior says I saw Carson high school’s potential. Being here for just seven months has opened my eyes how American schools can be so big yet so neighbor like, so diverse yet so unified. I see that schools like CHS have all the resources for success but lack the attitude for it, the students have been so desensitized to the need of community and hard-work that sometimes it scares... I see CHS as a smart, playful yet distracted child, that people from Carson have to nurture and support, if they want it to grow mature and sensational. We have to accept that parents are the downfall to our students, NOT TEACHERS.CHS HAS THE MEANS TO BE GREAT! ARE THE STUDENTS WILLING TO RAISE IT TO AUCH DEGREE?.
