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.

Since freshman year in high school some of my teachers taught efficiently to my liking and others taught way to fast for my brain. Math was my weakest point, but other than that everything else was fine. My favorite thing about Carman-Ainsworth High School is the choir class. Every year as each person came and went we were like family. Choir was like my second home and I felt safe there. The director was like a second mom to me even though she did have her moments when she did explode, but I know it was because she just wanted us to succeed in singing. Some things I would like to see change at Carman is the fact that we had to sign out of lunch to use the bathroom and sign back in when we were done. Also, I would like to see Carman have the opportunity to be an open campus during lunch time because they fully deserve that opportunity. Other than that Carman was the best school I've ever been to and would highly recommend it to others in the future.
I've been attending Carman - Ainsworth since I was in second grade and for 11 years I have been satisfied. Starting with their easy curriculum as far as the English and science classes but also the after school programs and activities they have for kids that help achieve their future goals and how they want to make an impact on future generations to make sure their career pathway is the smart choice for them. One thing that impacted me while attending Carman-Ainsworth was being chosen to be a director of an after school program called the Natural Hair Club where I teach young black girls and -boys about self- confidence in natural hair, and not live of to society's beauty standards and not be brainwashed by hair discrimination in the public eye.
