This school is fantastic. The administration knows all the students and truly supports them. They honor diversity instead of practicing tolerance. It is a truly great learning environment.

The problem starts with the leadership in the school (or lack thereof). The principal in the school is not effective and the students do not respond to her. Due to the extreme liberal environment in Carrboro, drugs are not viewed as an issue. This school has one of the most severe drug problems starting in the middle schools that feed into it. My children go to this school and I am considering moving them to a charter school. Coming from a parent that has the attitude that actions drive the attitude of the youth, the school leadership is lacking in the ability to take action.

This school has had three principals since it opened just a few years ago. One was 'replaced', another quit. They can't seem to staff for scheduled classes, relying on a stream of substitutes, in at least one case, for most of the school year. The school has been racked by race tensions and "solves" them by amplifying the very situations that caused them in the first place. Knowledgeable parents frequently arrange for their children to attend another district high school, and with good reason. I suggest that you do so as well, for you child's sake. I thought having my children attend the local school was best for them ... boy, was I wrong. I could not be more disgusted at this waste of my tax dollar and wish I could go back in time and have had my kids reassigned elsewhere.

I find the school's philosophy to be too liberal & not expecting students to be individually responsible

Pretty good school, but they spend too much time patting themselves on the back and not enough time fixing their problems.

Excellent program for the students, both academically and for athletics. We have been with the school since its opening and the staff and teachers are top notch.

Carrboro High School is a 'green' school. One of the first schools in this area and the first high school. Wonderful school!
