    "What I liked about Currituck was the location. I liked how it was close to the beach. What I think they need better of is to help prepare for college. Also, I think that the classes need to be more challenging. A lot of the teachers need to have better teaching techniques."

    "This school has gone from okay, to the worst of all schools. I'd say about half the teachers, 'teaching' here, are only concerned with one thing, their paycheck. While students are struggling, they choose to ignore them, and let them fail. The other half, is more then willing to help you succeed, & make something of your life, and if they can't help you, they'll refer you to another teacher that can. This school is disgusting, I have never felt more imprisoned then I do, when I walk through the doors here. Yes, I understand discipline, and structure, but I believe the staff is going a little overboard on the guidelines they've set up for this year. Also we only have 20 minutes to eat lunch, and if you don't get to the lunch line before everyone else, you might as well forget about eating that day. Also, when there is a multiple student incident, the administrators only take actions on one of the students involved. They pick and choose who gets in trouble."

    "I really like the personal relationships between the students and teachers because it creates a relaxed atmosphere that is enjoyable to be in every day. Another really positive thing about Currituck County High School would be the diversity of the students and the constant effort to welcome all students so that they feel secure in this safe learning environment. Something I would like to change about my school would be the attentiveness of certain staff in regards to ensuring that all teachers and substitutes have adequate materials and technology to teach students in a beneficial way. Also, the organization of certain events like when school is cancelled, the homeroom schedule, and school spirit days need to be coordinated better among staff, but when there is so much going on it is understandable why things can be hectic sometimes. All in all though, this school has provided me with great experiences and a good education."

    "I had a really good experience in high school at Currituck County High school. It was a very small community and you know everyone. The teachers were really nice and I felt like I graduated with a lot of knowledge to take to college. They offer a wide variety of clubs, sports, and activities."

    "The teachers aren't as qualified as they should be. The curriculum of common core is for test based learning and it is limiting the academic success. The scheduling process is awful and is often messed up several times."
