  • Reviewed by Former Student on August 04, 2007
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school needs a lot more enforcement it's unsafe and harmful to students. In the hallway you'll see a fight just about every day on the morning announcements there are over 100 kids called down to the office for referrals. The substitute teachers throw things around the room. One of the science teachers puts kids down in every way. CARBONDALE IS ONE OF THE WORST SCHOOLS THERE IS.
