My experience at Carlmont High Shool was fulfilling. The teachers are very nice. The campus is getting bigger everyday. I enjoyed playing lacrosse.

My only suggestion would be is to divide the school into 4’s. For example, the lower part of the school senor classes. Next level up sophomores then next level juniors top level freshman. making the school class closer together. Instead of a having a class on the other one end and having to travel across campus to bio and be late everyday. Just a suggestion! Thank you.

Everything about Carlmont High School is excellent. There are few things that can be improved such as the food quality but everything else is phenomenal so far. Their academic system is very good and there are many advanced courses I plan to take. The amount of homework that is given is just right. I have enough time to spend time in extracurriculars but enough that it is quite easy to do well on quizzes and tests. The teachers are all really nice and help me out if I need it. Overall, my experience has been great and I see great things in the future.
Carlmont is a California Distinguished School. It offers many opportunities for students that prepare them for life after high school, in college, and beyond!
