As a substitute, it is a decent place to sub at. When you look at the building at first, it may seem a little intimidating but once you go inside, just give it some time and you will be fine. The students seems to be knowing what they are doing and expected to finish their assignment when the sub is there. Sometimes, the class gets rowdy so they need to be reminded multiple times to stay on task. Some staffs are helpful, and some were weird. I like some students who appreciate the substitute and finish their assignments on time. There could be plenty of improvement by giving more restrictions on less cellphone usage and informing the students that they must be on their best behavior when the sub comes.

Carter is bit intimidating when you first enter the building but once you give it some time I think you'll be happy with what your child experienced.My child was in 8 th grade last yr. I signed him up for free tutoring this summer. Most of the tutors said that my child is working on or above grade level, Then I decided to get help with Art instruction, He really loves art so I know he would do great, The first day the camp called and asked if he could be put in a higher level class, His Carter art teacher taught him so well that my baby gets be taught at a higher level.

I am a seventh grader here and i pretty much discovered everything that goes on here.This year i saw that there was a lot of fights not in the school but close to the school or in someones house.So dont hang with the wrong crowd but inside the school it is fun and not strict.The security is great and we have random police searches.but a few teachers are kinda of bad teachers because they dont explain what there teaching so you can understand they just repeat what they said before.overall its a good school just pay attention in class make a lot of friends and dont get involved with the wrong crowd.

I happen to believe if a school that fails to control problems should have its principal fired. I also believe this school should expell the students who have been held behind for more then 2 years as they won't be able to go beyond Carter.

My daughter attended Carter for 2 years. Although there were teachers that tend to 'slack' and fights, overall i'm satisfied with this school. I believe that it doesn't matter where your child goes to school, it is their own personal decision that leads them to gangs, fighting, shavings, piercings etc. And I also happen to believe that a child is to respect figures of authority and to me that involves teachers, principals, administrators, guards, and so on. It's not always the teachers or the schools that are the problems.

Carter is far from being great. My son was in this school's district so he had to attend but, it wasthe worst 2 years of school we have both been through. An education is not what your child will get here and the administration, starting with the principal, is highly laughable to say the least.

I'm an 8th graderat this school its not that bad. Seriously rumors about this school stopped last year its really gotten more strict but they still let us have fun its no the worst school or the best school its a little cheap and some behivoir is really bad but overall even the kids with the saggy jeans shaved heads and piercings can be really smart im not one those though im still smart. Yeah the school is not what it looks like and I might be proud to be a cougar

This school does not meet my standards of a great school. A education is hard to come by and if you want your child to receive a good education pick another school.

Carter has potential, but the school has not been able to deal with student discipline probalems adequately. Most parents have no time to be involved in the PTA.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
