Hoping the school gets dissolved. When I went to school here 25 years ago it was pretty good. 25 years later it's poor! Poor quality of teachers, poor coaches, administration is lacking. Good staff come and go quickly leaving the ones behind who think they are good, very out of touch. Small school, your child can be on every team and in every event due to the numbers that they have. This caused less than stellar teams. Teachers are the coaches to keep the students under control. The students don't seem toons loosing, not a good environment to raise kids these days. If you are looking for a small School keep looking for the betterment of your child, love them enough to keep looking!

We have had three of our children enrolled in the high school from grades 8 thru 12th since we moved into the Crafton area in 2007. The school has exceeded our expectations. We have been very pleased with the dedication of the teachers and coaches and the general support of the entire staff. We like the smaller size and feel very blessed to be a part of this wonderful community.

I have no complaints about the education I received after being in the Carlynton School District from K-12. Teachers and coaches were great. Liked the small school atmosphere, yeah it is not perfect facility wise but they were nothing to complain about and usually better than the competition. I felt well prepared heading into college.

I enjoyed my education at Carlyton. Yes, the district is small but because of this I feel like I had attentive teachers and the ability to get help when I needed it. I want to raise my family in this area because of this school district.

I attended Carlynton from K through 12. I attended a 4 year University, am gainfully employed as well. I must say this school gets a tough call due to the section 8 attached to its zone but.....this makes up a very small postion of the schools attendence. Most of the section 8 housing are better behaved and excel further than the others. I would recommend the school 100 fold abouve the surrounding schools. The classes are small and the learning environment simply wonderful. In all the years of schooling I received, college included, I must saw I never ran into any teachers that could challenge those at Carlynton! Sports teams are not real competitive but more emphasis is placed on academics for this school. So, that said if you are looking for top performing sports teams, then look elsewhere. Academically it performs right up there with the best! Hope this helps!
