Best Seconadry School in Carlow?

    What do you think would qualify a school as 'best'?

    Happiest students?
    Happiest teachers?
    Wins lots of trophies?
    Doesn't take in 'foreign' people?
    Doesn't take in travellers?
    Doesn't take in children with special needs?
    Great equipment in the school?
    Good results in exams?
    Good transfer to college?
    Low rate of children self-harming?
    High attendance rate from students and teachers?

    It's impossible to answer as you are not comparing like with like.

    In general, a school with a lot of parental involvement will result in a school with a 'good reputation'.
