I am an alumni and so is my one child, I still have one child attending, the teacher's just do not care, they sit and read newspapers while the kids do whatever they please. Some things just never change. It has got to be the worst school in the suburbs of NJ, the teacher's are all the same one's that I had, so many years ago, just sitting, putting their time in. We are definately moving, so my daughter does not have to attend this insane circus of a highschool.
I attend Carteret High School and it is nothing like it's reputation. I have mostly Honors classes and I find that my teachers are exceptional and I am learning a great deal from them. Just like most other high schools, it does have certain teachers that do not meet up with the 'standards'. Parent involvement definitely needs improvement and the weight is upon the students to grow up and behave like they are supposed to behave when in a School-based environment. The music and theatre programs in this school are AMAZING! Stop by to one of the football games and experience the true Rambler pride that the Marching Band radiates.
Teachers are knowledgeable and supportive for AP classes, such as English, Biology, Calculus AB & BC. Jazz band, Marching band and other activities in music are exceptional but students need to practice at their own time. I wish the school offered AP Physics and AP Chemestry. Sometimes students need to more disciplined in how they dress and act in and around school. Parents should be more responsible for their child.
i am really disappointed in wat people have to say about this great school. this has to be the best school i have ever been to. carteret just gets a bad reputation because of where it is. i attend chs and i love it here and i wouldn't want to go anywhere else. the teacher are fantastic and the diversity makes it great. and to answer the person from before , we are not getting uniform nor will we. i hate when people automaticly think its a bad school. if you think this way please come for at least a week to see what a great school it is. and we also have a new prencipal
