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.

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.
One of the best things about Carman-Ainsworth High School was that I was able to do Dual enrollment at my high school where the college professors came to my school. I was able to earn 13 college credits while in high school and started college ahead of many other Freshman students. I also really enjoyed participating in the Genesee Career Institute where there were hands on medical programs that I participated in. The teachers at Carman-Ainsworth are some of the best teachers in the state. Many of them worked very hard and stayed after hours to help tutor students, etc.

Carman-Ainsworth was one of the most diverse in the state and it was nice to be able to spend time with others students from other races, etc. We had many students from not only other races but from many other countries. They were able to share stories of their lives and made us realize how fortunate we were. There is not another school that I would have wanted to go to.
