This school is nothing like what everyone says. Be a current student there I can definetly say that the teachers I have are willing to stay before school and after school to help. There aren't going to make it too easy though. You have to think and work for what you get. It's definetly not an easy way through high school.Yes, this school is not perfect but it's not horrible either.

For me, going to Carencro my whole life i can personally say that it is not at all what people say about it. Carencro has its ups and downs just like every other public high school. For those of you who say that all they care about is dress code maybe you shouldnt let your child out of the house dressed the way he/she is dressed. They are only concerned for your child and they want the best for them.

This is a terrible school ! They care more about dress code than educating our children. As far as i'm concerned dress code has no relivance at all to education! Something should be done . Parents aren't involved because its not allowed. What we say or think is doesn't matter at all to them.

I recently graduated from Carencro High School. I consider this high school average due to the lack of changeling courses and driven teachers. Yet, the bright side of Carencro High School is the Academy of Information Technology. I was enrolled into the Academy all four years. The Academy taught me several life long resources that benefited me yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

This school is for anyone who wants an easy way through high school. The academics are more than easy. The overall school is just terrible. I would not reccommend anyone to enroll at this school.

All schools are basically the same. You have great points about them and bad ones. We have done the private route and now the public route for education. This school provides alot of avenues of individual success (not just in sports)and I applaud their efforts. Would though like to see more parental involvement to help the teachers help the students be good decent citizens.

It's sad to say but this school has been a huge disappointment. The administration cares more about the student s dress code policies. I have been put in Behavior Clinic because I didn t have a belt and the person the administrator told to show me where BC is was a football player and he happened to also committing a uniform offense was he told anything. No he wasn t .
