14 Parent Reviews for Carteret High School

Sometimes students need ...  Read more

This is a very diverse high school. Not the best by any means, there are many ways it could be improved, but the teachers are nice enough and there are plently of extracirricular activities to choose from.

The school does not go the extra mile for the kids. There are some dedicated teachers but overall, a disappointment. One positive thing is that it is very diverse in terms of its student population.

The school is small and crowded but the teachers are great. The school is very diverse. As far as after school activites all meeting are held on the same day, making it hard to join and keep up with many clubs but most students find a way to do it anyway.The Carteret High School Marching Band is a Group ...  Read more

This school is a really bad school. Some of the teachers work hard but the classes are really boring and the school is dirty and small. The extra curricular activities are getting better but all of the meetings are held on the same days and the students cant attend all of them at once! They are really ...  Read more
