    "I m a former student from back in the early forties. It was a wonderful experience! The Choir went down the hall singing Carols at Christmas. We had great, dedicated, teachers (except for a metal shop teacher who started to choke a boy for yelling too loud.) My English teacher even came in on a Saturday to tutor when I was slipping. The Boy's Coach was also a superb swimming instructor. Often behind in homework, I stayed for a lot of study halls; but, it was worth it. Alas, I would give the school 5 stars except that the Principle and home-room teacher had me suspended in the 10th grade -- for some reason that I don't know to this day. I was certainly not a trouble maker and got along well with the teachers. With my Dad overseas and my Mom was in poor health, they couldn t address the issue. ."

    "This school is typical of Pittsburgh Public Schools. They discipline more than teach. The leadership is unable to differentiate between offenders and defenders. They use a blanket solution...suspension, which is not a true punishment for the offending students because they do not fear it. Students do not adhere to attendance policies and wander in well after the start of school. My child's academic experience is a disappointment. The guidance office and social worker are overloaded with problem students to actually give guidance."

    "Carrick used to be a great school, but it has rocketed towards the ground. This school has taught my son nothing. The children here are out of control, and most of the teachers do not particularly care for the students' individual needs. They tend to pick favorites. There are some very good teachers in this school, but they are few, and I assure you that most of the others do not know how to teach. The children here are immediately punished as soon as a teacher 'writes them up' without a word from the student. The school is dirty, with bees often flying around the room. The kids roam the halls, and most of them do not do their work. Fights break out more often than students pass tests. The only way Carrick HS has attempted to fix all of this is with more work for the kids. I am disgusted with this school and it's methods of 'teaching'."

    "I completely disagree with the most recent review. The teachers as a whole are very considerate and do care. The school handles thing as best as they can with the resources that they are given. The incident mentioned was a freak occurence and leaving the school was a bad decision in the firs place. The school had taken actions to insure the safety of the students, and handled the situation well. Because it is a highschool there is bound to be seperation and this is not specific schools. There are a few too many altercations i must agree but the staff handles this issue as well as possible."

    "Parents, PLEASE READ. It is of extreme importance that you hear me out. Carrick High School is one of the worst schools you could put your child in. I am currently attending. The staff at Carrick High are inconsiderate and cruel. For instance, there was a recent rumor of a gun threat going around, and the teachers punished children for leaving the school out of fear. I must warn you that the staff does not care about the child's grades, and few out of them will give your child the necessary assistance in order for them to pass. Racism is a high ordeal. Fights break out all the time, and races separate themselves in sports, lunches, and activities. Overall, the school MUST be considered dangerous, racist, unacceptable, and noneducational. I warn you that unless your child is extremely lucky, they will be MISERABLE at this school."
