I went to Carterville High School until my family moved to Iowa in 1960. Would this be the same building? I remember some of the kids names like Rex Cisco,Ronny Dennison, David Cheniworth, and my cousin Jack Walker. My name is Bobby Walker. If you remember me e mail me please.

The academic program at Carterville is great - one of the best around by far. My children have been in Marion (a neighboring community) and this district. Carterville is far superior! The athletic program is outstanding. It is hard to get rid of the bad eggs in this district.

Carterville has a great school system. It is small and everybody knows everybody. The only bad part is that the facility is old and needs improvement. The school excels in all sports and Scholar Bowl. This is a great school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
