    THE Cary High School

         I would like to welcome you to Cary High School, where we value Tradition, Honor, and Excellence.  We were the first public school in North Carolina and we take pride in celebrating our long history of graduating highly successful students and citizens.  Our school culture demands focus, curiosity, engagement, and hard work.  We believe that our school has a responsibility to support its community by serving others.  Cary High School provides many specialty programs that allow students to explore and hone their talents and interests, from performing on stage to excelling on the field.  We hope that you will find our website useful in learning about us and all of the wonderful opportunities awaiting you on our campus.

  • Holocaust Field Trip to DC


    Helen Jimenez-Rueda, Nikki Siu, Alison Ieno, and Mrs. Rabe pose for a picture with Holocaust survivor, Mr. Henry Greenbaum. (photo above)


    Students in Mrs. Nantz and Mrs. Rabe's classes took a field trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Students came away with a greater understanding of how hatred and intolerance can be amplified to manipulate ordinary citizens into committing heinous acts of violence towards others. They were also able to see that making different choices, based on compassion and understanding, promote the well being of all members of society. The highlight of their visit was speaking with Mr. Greenbaum, a Holocaust survivor who immigrated to the United States from Poland after the war. He shared with our students that "America is the greatest country in the world! I came here with nothing, a 7th grade education, and I was able to make a living for myself. All of my children have been to college and they are successful. In what other country would you be able to do that?"
    Some other highlights of the trip were visiting the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Wall, and visiting either the Archives Building which houses the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, or the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.
