Carman-Ainsworth High School Reviews

The best parts about Carman-Ainsworth are the diversity that all students are exposed to as well as the handful of teachers who do genuinely care about their students. With that being said, the teachers who do care are joined by teachers who obviously are counting down the days until retirement and do not attempt to help students beyond what they are required to do. I did not receive the opportunities that I would have had I went to another school in the area. The students who are gifted and are on track to achieve great things in life are not given adequate opportunities to succeed following high school. The school simply lacks the resources offered at other schools and the only reason I give Carman-Ainsworth an average score is because of the lessons that I have learned being exposed to other people who are different from myself.

I feel that overall my school was the best choice for me in terms of diversity and people. I was able to open myself to all different kinds of cultures, religions, ethnicity, and personalities. It's really helped shape me into the person that I am. Most of my teachers really believed and cared about the students academically and personally. We all felt that we had people who believed in us and guided us through our strengths and weaknesses. It's unfortunate that school ended the way that it did, but I know that heading towards college this fall that I have the guidance of those teachers pushing me forward.
Carman-Ainsworth High School is the most diverse I’ve ever seen. I love coming here because we have students of all different backgrounds, and the sense of love is always there. We are sometimes accused of living in our own bubble, but I think it’s a nice break from reality. Being an American Muslim teenager who wears hijab, I love knowing that I can come to school feeling comfortable and safe. Our teachers are amazing and very approachable. We have great science and computer labs; our campus has facilities for every sport team. The students are very kind, and the academics are beyond excellence. The opportunities at CAHS are endless. No matter what you want to become, there are classes designed specifically for that career, and you can earn college credit too! All in all, it’s a great school and I believe it’s the best high school in the area.
