Cary High School is a wonderful school. The staff, parents and students are committed to being the best. The academics are excellent, athletic and band programs are strong with a real dedication to excellence by staff and students. We have lived in the same neighborhood for 12 years to make sure all our kids go to Cary High.
Cary High is an ok school. The only thing thats excellent about this school is the extracurricular activities that they provide for the students. A lot of the teachers are there just so that they can put money in their pockets. It kind of depends on what teacher you get, becuase this school also has a lot of great teachers that actually care. I dont see how this school is supposedly one of the top schools. To some teachers that doesnt even matter, as long they get paid. If a student is lucky they will get a teacher that will not teach them anything, and will let you pass. This is from an experienced former 9th grader.
Cary High School is a wonderful. The flagship of Wake County. The whole fine arts department wonderful. The band competes in national compitions and school spirit is very strong. The
Cary High School provided a wonderful education for my daughter (recent grad). She had over 25 college credits upon graduating Cary High. My son is currently at Cary, and has also already begun to earn college credits as part of his high school schedule. There are MANY dedicated teachers, and both of my children have had absolutely NO problems with violence at school. Parents need to be involved in which classes your child signs up for - but there is plenty of classes to challenge their learning experience. I would send my children to CHS in a heartbeat!
Cary is probably the worst school out there. I do not get how it gets such rave reviews. The entire school system is awful, and the teachers don't cary about the students, and are often racist. If Cary is such a great school, then why are so many students failing? Simply put, the only good thing about Cary is its sports.
Cary High has very good academics, and GREAT sports teams especially football. GO IMPS. But at the same time people at cary dont get along that great thats why their are fights almost twice a week. But academics wise cary is a great school.
The administration and staff work very hard to make Cary High an outstanding public high school. Parent involvement is high, student involvement is high, and test scores go up each year. Teachers and coaches care about the kids and the counseling staff is excellent. A student gets out of a school what they put in--apply yourself here and you will get a wonderful education and be well prepared for college or the workforce. Both my students were accepted to challenging colleges and are doing well.
My experience with Cary High School has been nothing but wonderful. The staff is especially warm and take their time with each student. We had to leave the Raleigh area to get to the best school area in Wake County schools, but it is a beautiful place and great schools. Comparing it to N. Raleigh schools (which resemble S. Raleigh more every year) is like apples to oranges. Keep up the good work Cary High!
Cary High is THE worst school in wake county. There whole system is out of wake. The teachers are there just to get paid and the students are there to see there friends. My daughter went there all four years and still talks like she never took a english class. At the same time, she gets straight A's? How does that work? On top of it all, the administration are even ruder than the students. I feel Cary High has many, many problems that they need to work with.
To say the least I am very impressed with Cary HS and their policies towards education. There are many extracurricular activities for which the kids can be involved. I have never seen a school where the parents are as involved as the teachers and kids. Cary HS concern for future generation's education is admirable.
