It is one of the only Utah schools where diversity, of all kinds, seems to be truly accepted. The teachers are fantastic and put in countless hours on their students' behalf. What a refreshing school!!

I think this is a good accredited school. Check out the other school in town that is a rival and see if it is accredited and has good testing scores. (It does not) but see for yourself. This school has higher testing scores.

I am sorry to say you are totally wrong. My child went to the so called wonderful 'better' Pinnacle Canyon Academy school and he went from straight b average to all f grades WE had just moved to Price and the school was just around the coroner therefore I asked about the school and called the district with all good remarks. But the teachers never told me he was failing so badly, I would ask and the answer was always the same You have a wonderful child and we are so pleased to have him here.The results he didn't want to go and at the end of the year he didn't pass and how being at Carbon High School he so busy with studding and his grades are A an B's his teachers care and work with him and as for the ID badges, my give them responsibility an

This is a horrible school. The students have very restricted privacy here. They have to wear ID badges and if they forget it more than once, they risk suspension. They are not allowed to bring in water bottles from home because of fear of alcohol consumption. If they enter a classroom with a water bottle, it has to be a new one from the school's own vending machines. This reviewer is a former student and dropped out because of the poor education and the treatment by the peers. However, despite the terrible conditions, the teachers are the school's prized possessions, so to speak. They teach for the love of it and value students, especially if they want to learn. Although there are great teachers, however, I would not suggest this school for anyone. Lighthouse Learning Center or Pinnacle Canyon Academy would be the better choice.

I attended, and graduated from, Carbon High School. I know that my successes in life are a direct result of the caring education I received at CHS. I also believe that learning responsibilities are primarily that of first the Parent & Children and then of the community and lastly of the school. This is a good school but students need to want to learn, and then need to get out of Price.

I would rank CHS with a D/D+ rating. The teachers are weak, mostly due to pitiful salaries and embarrassingly little public support/expectations for academic excellence! Not that local community support is totally lacking, football is VERY important! Utah legislators offer 'lip service' promises to educators, then they grossly under-fund educators with an attitude of spiteful delight. Also, the tenure system clearly promotes instructional mediocrity with most teachers and stifles teacher incentive to perform at higher standards. Worksheets and videos are the lesson of the day at CHS. Only a handful of teachers are truly outstanding. The high achieving students schedule their classes around those same few teachers. The school principal has his hands tied. There isn't any performance-based monies to compensate the truly devoted teachers. When will the CC Board of Education take action?

I would be proud to have my child attent this school. If your child wants to learn, then this is the place to be. They work with your child on a one on one basis. They want your child to learn. Along with academics they have a wonderful sports program that everyone can be involved in. Three generations of my family have all graduated from Carbon, and I felt lucky to be there.
