    "Out of all the schools in the area, this one is the most diverse. There are a few reasons why this school has issues: the kids don't listen, it is very infested with roaches, lack of funding for the arts, and as a solution to bomb threats you can't go to the restroom. I understand they want to keep the students safe, but that isn't the way. The school recently added an anime club. This wouldn't be found most places and I'm sure the students involved enjoy it. The 100 percent growth/A+ celebration was fun. I was suprised they had so much stuff for us."

    "I would definitely return to this school because of the connections I made with staff and students and the engagement from the staff for me to do my best. I still keep up with several of my teachers and they truly care about my success."

    "The teachers at West Carteret High School are absolutely phenomenal. I believe this is accurately reflected upon West Carteret's 2015 school rating of A+. Being an A+ school simply means that every single student achieved 100% growth in regards to their Standardized Test scores. All of our teachers at West Carteret are very personable; they genuinely care for our success and ensure top quality education. Our principal, Mrs. Carolyn Heller, only picks the very best staff members to ensure academic prosperity for the students. West Carteret is a very technology-savvy school, which has endless resources used for learning tools. We are greatly funded and are very gracious for the opportunities given to us. As you may know, North Carolina has recently adopted the Common Core curriculum. Although it may not be our traditional way of learning, our teachers make it the least "painful" as possible. :) They incorporate real-world scenarios in order to depict vivid imagery of the topic at hand. I believe this is very effective and important characteristic that is apparent at West Carteret. Each and every single one of the staff members at West Carteret High School has a degree in their teaching topic. Most of my teachers, having taken all honors and AP courses, all have graduated from very prestigious schools; some including Duke, UPenn, Penn State, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. With that being said, there is no question that the teachers at WCHS are of high quality and are held at great standards. At my school, West Carteret, not once have I felt in danger. I always feel safe and I have always felt that I am in a very positive and productive environment. And for that, I am very grateful."
