    "Lost my step daughter's transcripts for 2 weeks! Actually asked me "are you sure she graduated from here?". Upon showing them the diploma, they were like, "That doesn't help us." The guidance counselors will not call me back concerning scheduling conflicts with my son. Apparently they have no clue. Anyone who thinks this school is top notch apparently has does not have much life experience. New and shiny is not always better!"

    "While the school is beautiful and has a good arts program, I have had issues with our now sophomore. There are teachers who even the guidance counselors know want to see the kids fail, which I find appalling. Our experience with athletics via the football team has been horrible. I haven't figure out if the coaches are trying to win or not, but I do know they don't play a lot of kids no matter what the score. I've watched my son on the side lines when they were 60 points down too many times. I'd make him quiit, but he's determined to see it through. So much for building kids up!"

    "Bad not Great material. Some of the teachers are amazing and others are rude and substandard. My kids are going to private school now."

    "Our son has been blessed enough from his four years at Carolina Forest to be accepted to the highest ranked University in SC. Where many parents we know that had kids at other schools and many have complained they are struggling at the college level feeling their high school did not properly prepared their children, we feel very fortunate. CFHS did such a good job that our son just made the Dean's List in his first semester of college, thank-you Carolina Forest High! Coach Jolly, Mrs Jacobs, Mr Iagulli, and Mr Barber were all amazing educators and Mrs Twigg is not a teacher she is an angel from heaven sent to make a difference in the lives of so many young people today. Needless to say we HIGHLY recommend CFHS when moving to MB, SC...This is not one of the best schools this is the Best High School in Horry County!"

    "Carolina Forest is one of the best high schools in Horry County. They have the highest SAT and ACT scores and their are multiple choices for AP and Honors classes. They have an excellent rating. The school appeals to many different interests. They have sports, show choir, journalism, art, FFA, and many different clubs you can join. The administration staff is very nice and you can go to them for anything. Most of the teachers I've had have been good and the few that are bad are already being looked over by the admin. staff. Sure there are drug problems and the spoiled rich kid problems, but what school doesn't have that problem? And the whole thing about sports being the only people that are appreciated isn't true. CFHS is also proud of their show choir and theater program. They've made many breakthroughs within the past few years. Academics are also appreciated. I can say that the things that make it bad such as fights and drugs are no where near as bad as schools such as Socastee and Conway. This is an amazing school."
