My experience in this school system with 3 kids going through has been that they are all about sports, The SkyPort website Parent / Student access is a great theory if teachers would keep up with it. Too much emphasis was put on the ipads without forethought of how students would really use them.
This was my daughter's first year at Charlotte High School. Overall, it has been an outstanding experience for my daughter. She was able to be involved in many different extra curricular activities. She truly enjoyed her teachers. In addition, I enjoyed being involved in my student's education. Her English 9 teacher (Brown) invited me on several occasions to participate in activities that were going on in the classroom. Finally, the CPAC offers many different events and performers. I have enjoyed going to the concerts and plays, especially 'Arsenic and Old Lace'. This is a top-notch school. It has made my daughter's freshmen year a positve experience.
I'm a part of this school system right about now. The teachers are not easy to communicate with. Kids don't learn their subjects as they should. Drugs have a huge influence on our lives. Whether we do them or not, you will always hear about them and they will be a part of your life. Kids will judge you if you don't do things right. Its either your loved or hated. Not too many 'in betweens' But overall, Its not a terrible school. You have the good times, and bad times. In the end they prepare you for the real thing; life.
Charlotte High school is unique and focused on mainly sports. Charlotte developed the ZAP policy so every student turns in every assignment, if they do not they then report to ZAP Lab, if the student does not attend they are to receive a Saturday school, which is not always forced. This school also has a high percentage of problems including, alcohol, drugs, and pregnancy. But, it is also found in the Middle school. The sports are highly praised, without them we would not be heard of.The music program is amazing, yet unapretiated. Dr. Gary T. Sullivan has excelled with his teaching. The marching band received all I's at a district festival. While during concert season The Jazz Ensamble and the Symphony band won 1st place in their divisions while the Concert band received 2nd place in their divisions. If your student is musically/athletically inclined Charlotte is the place for them.=D
Safety and discipline here are quite poor in fact. There's wide spread drug and alcohol use, not only on campus, but at extracurricular functions as well. Although there's tons of opportunities to excel because Charlotte IS a small town, the high school can only be what your student makes of it.
Safety and discipline poor. Wide spread drug and alcohol use on campus and at extracurricular functions. Most recently - ski trip issues for alcohol use. Administration has lack of control. Middle school is even worse.
This school has a high regard for music and has not only put its efforts in teaching but it's finances as well. On the academic side, it needs work. I agree the set up allows for students to be comfortable and not want to excel. This school alone is not great for college prep. Teachers speak of communication, however it is difficult for you to communicate with them and they are not strong on accountability, for themselves or for the students. This is a statement of average, a few great, above great teachers are Zonyke, Borsheim, C. Kaiser, Moran and Toth.
Charlotte High School is a great school. The teachers get it done, while it is up to the students to get their work done on time. The sports in this town do get out of hand but not as much as others think. I went through this school and found it to be a fantastic school for both education and athletics.
