Carson High School is one of the top ranked high schools in Nevada. From our excellent student body, to the state-of-the-art Technology Center, we strive to ensure academic, social, and life-time excellence for all of our students. All visitors must check in at the main office to receive a visitors badge. CHS does not allow non-students to attend classes. In order to be on campus during school hours you must have a visitor's badge.
Carson High School challenges students to achieve their greatest potential for future success.
It's that time of year when we ask all Carson High families to complete our Parent Survey. The information provided from the Parent Survey is used to inform School Performance Planning for the following year. The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. The parent survey will be open from March 20th through April 3rd. Thank you in advance for your participation!
