Out of 4 states and 10 districts my family has experienced, Hartford is by far the very worst. The office staff are bullies, and therefore bullying is allowed in the student body. The only programs they deem worthy of investing in are band and sports, so the children who are there to learn or who are there and need to be challenged because they are ahead of the curve get left behind and all but ignored. The school wants the smart kids there for their test grades, but they don't want to invest anything into those same kids unless they are scoring points on a ball field somewhere. Stay away from Carlisle schools unless you are a jock or a bully. If you are a jock or a bully, you should thrive and do just fine there.
