Carmel High School Reviews
I had an exceptional experience and Carmel High! The teachers, curriculum, and the environment promote fun, well-rounded learning. Through the opportunities offered at CHS, I was able to confidently pick a major and a field of study in college. I highly recommend involvement in sports and advanced placement classes.
Carmel High Has provided me with artistic resources beyond my belief. Without this school, I do not think I would have been able to be at the point of college readiness and career preparation I am right now. Unlike most schools I've been to, CHS has managed to make sure all the departments shine brightly in the school spotlight. Their art program is most invigorating and incredibly engaging. Students and teachers alike are taught in a space where it does not feel like it is restricting or where the teachers feel like they're just trying to go by their day for their paycheck. I've honed by multiple disciplines here at this school alone compared to the other outside programs, high schools, and middle schools. My relationship with them and my relationship with other students will be sorely missed when I leave this year, but I am glad to have been apart of something greater as an artist.
One of the best parts about Carmel High School was the teacher's ability to ready students for both AP tests and colleges. The classes were rigorous, but this readied the students for all following challenges. Also, the teachers did not treat students as bodies in a room; they were always ready to answer any inquiries students may have. One of the downsides to Carmel was the lack of diversity. Carmel is a rich area, so most of the students were extremely affluent and mostly Caucasian. After being invited to many students' homes, many of them obtained houses worth millions of dollars. Although this was great for the school's reputability, it did not bode well for diversity.
