Both of our daughters have attended Southlake schools since elementary school. The reputation for the highest academic rigor and competition is, in my opinion, correct. However, my children thrived in this environment because they had such strong peer groups whose parents also had high academic expectations for their children. Both girls have now progressed with many AP classes and many hours of college credit (with lots of school activities) and have been accepted to many of the high ranking national schools throughout the country. I give a lot of the credit to the preparation given to them by Southlake-Carroll.

I grew up in the CISD and went to Carroll Senior High School. I can honestly say that CSHS was more rigorous and academically challenging than my undergraduate years. CSHS prepared me in every way possible to be an academician. I am now a law student at the George Washington University Law School.

This is truly one of the best schools in the state. After coming in 2nd place in the Lone Star Cup (only 13 points behind The Woodlands) the stats don't lie about this school. The boys swimming/diving and soccer teams won state in 2011 along with the girls drill team, the Emerald Belles. Being a one high school town, sports are very competitive, however the results are obviously in favor of this school. School spirit is HUGE in Southlake! The fine arts are among the best in the state. Carroll band and choir participants are among the highest at Solo and Ensemble competition. AP classes are rigorous, but extremely beneficial in the end. Even regular classes at Carroll are demanding. If you don't want to work, Carroll is not the school for you! The senior high is one of the older CISD campuses, but is in the final stages of a make over. The overall teacher/administration quality at the senior high is better than the high school, however, both schools are amazing. I have family all over the state of Texas and in comparison to my relative's schools, they don't even compare to Carroll. After going to CISD schools since 3rd grade, I am proud I got to attend Carroll schools. Go Dragons!!

Carroll Senior High School is a great community of students led by a great teaching staff. Sports are what most people hear about when they ask about Carroll, but it does not mean the other areas of interest that kids have are unsuccessful. The arts, theatre and music departments are just as strong and have helped shape young adults and prepare them for the next steps in their life. I would recommend Carroll for anyone moving to the area.

I got a great education from the Caroll School District. They do a good job of preparing you for college and the teachers are all bright and obviously want to be there.

Personally, I found Carroll to prepare me extremely well for the college I attend now. (Texas A&M) It encouraged me to strive for my best in every possible way. Extra curriculars were great, and even the weirdest of kids could find friends here. That being said, if your child doesn't want to be the best or be very involved in school, they will HATE it. Many students found that too much was expected of them and resigned themselves to attaining less than they could have, had they been at a less intense school.

My kids both graduated from CHS. They were prepared in every way to succeed at the next level, mainly because of an environment that doesn't accept anything less than your best effort. I had more than one teacher tell me that they had never seen a place like CHS -- where the peer pressure is to perform. If your kids are willing to work hard, they will be in the best environment you can imagine. If they are slackers, they will be miserable here.

Football program is the best in the nation. Excellent sense of community involvement and tons of civic pride. Drive the neighborhoods and you will see the Dragon emblem posted in front yards all over with what extra cirricular activity their child participates in. Go Dragons!

We moved to Southlake for several reasons, but the schools were one. THe Sr. High school is awesome. The academics are stand out. THe sports also stand out. Volunteers are at every school in the district. This is an affluent area which allows more volunteers. It also has caused more drugs. Good place for your kids to learn, but there is a lot of peer pressure.

AP classes are where the best teachers and academic instruction are. There is alot of emphasis on attendance. The overall atmosphere is one of good school spirit and kids who intend to go to college. The art department is not big but the instructor is very good and kids really like this teacher. Sports are very important to the kids as well as to the community. There is is huge support for all sports especially football which is very high caliber. The Choir program is strong at Carroll. The band is quite large and is very well respected. The band director has been at Carroll for 30 plus years. The band program starts in sixth grade and is important and many many kids start in the sixth grade and remain through high school. The theatre department has had turn over but still retains many students interested in the arts.

Great school! Lots of AP and honor classes to challenge your child. Regular classes appear to be somewhat on the easy side. Kids are VERY motivated and work hard. If you are not serious about your child's education, this school is NOT for you!
