Welcome to Carter High School

"Success" means different things to different people. In education, there are not many tangible, cut and dried indicators by which to measure success; it becomes a process, the manifestations of which might be a healthy buzz of activity, nurturing the desire to learn, acknowledging and accepting differences in the various shades that comprise a community. Ultimately, when our learners leave the gates for the final time, they should be confident, well-balanced young people eager to assume their place in society.

At Carter High we focus on the following stepping stones for success:

 

Staff-Learner Relationship. The two most important facets of any school. Carter High is blessed with an academic and support team dedicated to preparing our learners for the rapidly changing world. Our learners, for the most part, strive to realize their potential in an environment that reflects the realities of the real, greater world.

Unwritten curriculum. In many ways, it is the number and variety of activities offered outside the confines of the classroom that play a major role in providing our young people with opportunities to explore different facets of life – be they on the sports fields, dramatic and cultural events, creating ‘vibes’ or exploring the world of technology.

Change. Education has been wrestling with change for over a decade. We accept that change is inevitable but, rather than see it as threatening, we focus on the challenges that change presents and how best it can be managed – in the interests of our learners.

Community. A strong sense of community is nurtured and this includes the larger community, especially those who are less fortunate than most of our learners. Our Interact club is renowned for its many activities; when the blood transfusion services come to ‘bleed’ our learners, the response is not in vein; our learners have rallied generously when tragedies have befallen members of the Carter ‘family’.

Excellence. If the success of a school is measured in terms of academic achievements, then the staff and learners of Carter can hold their heads up High.

Support. A school needs the support of a number of different role players in order for it to succeed. At Carter, we are fortunate to receive this support in abundance. Nowhere is this more evident than in the vital role our Governing Body plays. Not only do members bring a wealth of talent to decision making, but they enable educators and learners alike to pursue their goals – providing facilities and educational needs which are carefully planned and responsibly budgeted for.

Striving. Attaining success is one thing; ensuring that one sustains it requires on-going reflection and modification where necessary. Providing a safe environment for our learners to strive for their goals is paramount. We are a successful school and will continue to uphold the two values expressed in our motto; ‘Justice and truth’.
