Caravel is a great school when it comes to academics and social involvement. It feels like one big family and you can always find a friendly face in any room you walk into. The teachers here are great and are always willing to help as long as you ask. The music program is my favorite part of this school. There are a lot of great opportunities and everyone is so supportive of each other, always encouraging you to do your best.

Overall, my experience at Caravel was very academically valuable. Attending this school since kindergarten and now being a senior in high school, I must confess that I am very well prepared for college; hence the fact that I have 12 credits prior to graduation. On the flip-side, social life here is only beneficial when you're apart of a certain clique. It is quite surprising that after 13 years of attending this school, I do not anticipate staying in contact with any of my peers for longer than a year after graduation. Other than that, being a student at Caravel for so long has been a splendid experience considering all of the knowledge that I have gained.
The education in the literature, art, and french departments is great. The other subjects are mediocre in their teaching. Caravel is exceptional with making sure the students understand the material if they are in need of help. The dress code is too strict. The kids are disciplined but there's a little bit of racism towards African Americans between the students. If there is a social problem, the faculty does their best in trying to fix it. The tuition is really high, and the fact that we have to pay for our own reading books is unreasonable. We also have laptops that we have to pay a lot of money for each year, and when we graduate we still have to pay a fee even though weve paid so much through high school
