I graduated from NCH back in 1994, and I loved it! The staff was great, very helpful, and very involved with the students.

We have two kids that graduated with goods grades and great scholarships so we can't complain. However, looking back, Carroll County does the turkey dance in a big way. If I still had kids in school and they got a teacher transfered in, I would be in the admins office asking questions.

As a student currently attending NCHS I can say that the school is great. The staff and teachers are amazing, and the principle is the best you could ask for. Although its overcrowded the students here are mindful of that problem and no major problems occur. Overall a great school.

This is my first year at North Carroll High. I think that overall the school is pretty good. The staff is nice and most of the teachers are great. It is very crowded, but that problem is being worked on. I don't have any major problems with North Carroll, but I don't love it.

My child is now a junior and I have to say I am not impressed with the educational quality. My child is very bright and takes all AP and honors classes two teachers in the two and a half years she has attended NCHS have truly taught her and she felt she really learned and gained knowledge from those classes. However the others have been interesting to say the least so many teachers are more worried about being students friends and having them like them then teaching and keeping control of a positive classroom environment. The AP classes do seem to excel but honors seem to be a joke. I am an alumni of NCHS and I think the classroom environment has severely changed and definitely has not improved and I now doubt the decision that I made not to do private.

The school and staff are fantastic. The overcrowding is not the fault of the school it is the fault of the Board of Education. But I give thumbs up to the principal and her amazing administrative staff for keeping order and safety first at the school

As a student at NCHS I think that the school has a lot more that can be offered. Some of the current teachers are not as they should be, and should be trained more frequently. The halls of NCHS are overcrowded and the safety and discipline about issues such as bullying should become more frequent and have higher consequences. Over all, the classes, such as AP courses, are well taught and have amazing standards for all the students enrolled in them. In my opinion, the special needs program is more than amazing. There is an extracurricular activity for every student to be involved with. Some include drama, arts, sports, business and so much more. Something is bound to spike a students interest. Personally, I do not know much about parent involvment, sorry. From what I do know, more parents should become involved to help there children succeed.

The academics of this school are phenominal. They have very high standerds, and teachers will help you when you ask them for it. If you dont then you wont get the help you child needs. There is an extrodinary amount of music programs, which include 2 types of bands and 5 different choirs. With art, you have the photography club and art clubs. With sports, we have almost every sport that can be played in high school. I'm not sure of parent involvmen, since I havent even gotten a pto/pta sign-up for the school. Overall, the teachers are awsome and there is almost no violence. I haven't seen any drug usage since I've been here. The admin takes all accusations seriously.

My daughter just graduated last year with a 4.5 GPA, which included 3 AP classes, that allowed her to get a head start in college. The teachers and staff here are all excellent and will bend over backwards for any child that seeks help. It is one of the last public schools to still offer your child a chance to excel while still using 'God' in their Pledge of Allegiance' every morning. My youngest daughter starts there next week, and I consider it a blessing. I know she will be safe, nurtured, and prepared for the future by this excellent staff. Thank you North Carroll HS

I went to school at north carroll for half a semester. I can personally say that your children are not being open with what is going on, its over crowded by 500 students! Private schools only get money from students, not the government public schools get more money, stop and think about how teachers make their income... Tuition.

This is a pretty good school and by pretty good, I mean average. You will not find any teachers that bend over backwards to help your child and if they encounter a problem-child most of the time they just try to sweep them under the carpet instead of actually dealing with the problem.

I am a recent graduate from the class of 2005. My entire high school career was a very memorable time where violence was not a major issue and whatever may have occurred was handled smoothly and swiftly by administration. All of the teachers at this school are there because they want to be and help make students' high school experiences memorable ones.

Being an alumni from this school, graduating in 2001, I would say that the school has much to offer for any child. Very friendly and caring staff with strict rules on behavior. Those who take advantage of the good qualities that this school offers will succeed, as most students do and become successful. I would suggest this school to all as I and many of my friends enjoyed it very much and have all now graduated from several different 4 year colleges.

It is the best school in Carroll County with both a veteran staff and many NCHS alums who now teach there. The school is friendly and very safe!

I have had three children go to this school. One managed to graduate with a less than satisfactory grade. They lack in good leadership. I have take the other two of my students out of this school.
