• Welcome Parents, Students, and Visitors!  Carter High School is a wonderful place!  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve in such a special school community.  I am beginning my 15th year in serving the Carter community and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else – Thank You!

    At Carter High School, we have high academic and behavior expectations for each and every student.  We are committed to working collaboratively as a staff with students and their families to fully prepare them for college/career readiness. 

    This year, I will be serving as the Senior Principal to ensure academic success as we work toward the milestone of high school graduation for each Carter High School Graduate, Class of 2016. 

    As we continue on our journey, please know our door is always open and we invite you to engage in our endeavor to make Carter High School the most wonderful place to grow and learn in a safe and academically challenging school environment.

    Go Hornets!
