Carlton Comprehensive High School

Carlton Comprehensive High School (CCHC) is not only the largest school in the province, but also the best in Prince Albert. At least that is what readers appeared to agree upon when they placed their votes for Best School.

Carlton averages around 320-370 graduating students each year.

Recent graduates: Nicole Matheis, Lucas McComechy and Sara Grassick are excited to move on and begin the next chapter of their lives, but all three agree and are happy they chose to become a Crusader and attend Carlton Comprehensive High School in Grade 9.

Matheis who was very involved with the Mad Hatter Theatre Company was pleased when she heard of the school’s win for Best of the Best. She admitted when she first started at Carlton four years ago she was a bit nervous, but that feeling didn’t’ last long—especially once she signed up with drama club.

“I was terrified,” she said “But I love it now and I am definitely going to miss it. The Mad Hatter Theatre Company definitely had a huge impact on my life and it changed who I am, I am more confident because of it.”

McComechy said the best thing about Carlton, for him, was the teacher’s and the coaches.  He said they have helped him get to where he is today.

“I have had a lot of great coaches they have always tried to make me better and keep me in the sport,” he added.

McComechy will be attending the University of Regina in the fall to play football.

Another proud Crusader, Grassick, said the thing that has impacted her high school career the most at Carlton includes sports and the various academic programs she has taken part in. She said she is happy about Carlton’s Best of the Best win.

“I think the reason that Carlton won is because we have so many different programs,” Grassick said. “No matter what career path you decide to take whether you are going to go into university; whether you are going to get into the skilled trades, there are a variety of classes provided.”

She mentioned how Carlton now offers a university-level English class and that next year the school will also offer a university-level math class for their senior students.

“So, Grade 12 students are getting a start into to university before they even graduate and I think that’s great,” she said.

Carlton’s slogan is building our future one student at a time and students at CCHC are encouraged to become responsible community members.
