School Reviews

  • Recommended November 15, 2012 - Carroll high school is a very proud school, however the academic programs, teachers, and faculty members lack in major points. Newly defined this year, carroll high school''s curriculum is not of the greatest. The new teaching styles may seem good at first, however they teach little of what the student needs to know in a timely manner. The teachers of carroll high school, a lot of the teachers at carroll high school are rude, disrespectful, and do not know how to correctly teach students. Even after NUMEROUS complaints to the school and the school district, from many parents and students, the school district still has not taken action in disciplining or firing inadequate teachers. About 3 of 8 teachers in a student''s scheduled will be unable to provide an adequate education to a student. The Facilities of Carroll high school are very nice, the whole school is very clean and tidy, except for the bathrooms which are made disgusting by the students whom urinate on the floors, walls, and toilet seats; students also will often not flush the toilet after defecation leaving feces to be aerated into the once withstand able air. This is not only disgusting but is also a major health hazard (seeing as how human excrement is considered a biohazard). One of the up-sides to Carroll high school is its plentiful abundance of fine arts programs which are top notch and available to almost all students. Carroll also has a great abundance of sports and extracurricular activities that anyone can participate in. Carroll has had a great run overtime in athletic awards. Carroll''s football program is one of the best among the country, The high school has won State football championships numerous times. The cross country team is also extremely talented, winning multiple state championships. The Carroll Dragon marching band is one of the best in the area, even though Carroll has not made it to state for marching band in their time of being a 5A school district, they continually make straight 1''s in region competitions. - Posted by Student/Alumni

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
