I personally felt that Carmel High offered some of the best educational experience I could have asked for. I felt overwhelming support from staff and students, and really felt that the school provided a high quality location to pursue education. Everyone seemed very encouraging and supportive in my academic ventures and overall self-improvement, which enabled me to push myself to succeed. The motivated and hard-working environment that I experienced at Carmel High School is something that I will carry with me throughout my whole life. In addition, the campus is beautifully kept and teachers and students are all treated with respect by one another, which created a positive and calm work environment.
If there is anything I've learned empirically from growing up, money can buy everything other than happiness. The perks of living in a wealthy school district were plenty: elaborate arts resources/trips, highly educated teachers, funding for a plethora of extracurriculars, etc. No one school is immune to the woes of high school (be it study-stress, bullies, or something else), but their resources make it forgivable. The investment of all the teachers is very apparent, with plenty and varied honors/AP classes. The campus is beautifully located & is by far the cleanest, most well kept public school I've ever attended. Unfortunately, the negative effects of financial accessibility, like addiction & desensitization, are prevalent in the student body--even the non-affluent students find themselves in an atmosphere catered to confused teens with cash to spare. The school could do more to address this issue before tragedy happens with an overdose death or (another) DUI death.
Carmel High School is a school with a lot of history behind. My experience at Carmel High School was pretty average. I not going to say it was the most amazing experience because it was not. I being a POC had to deal with the baggage that came with it; the racial slurs that were thrown at my brother and I while currently being enrolled there is appalling, and the academic inferiority I have experienced is truly derailing. However, I managed to make some really amazing friends at this school, and I think this school does an amazing job in preparing their students for their futures from the high academic classes and electives they have, to the clubs that mentally prepare students for their future. There sports program as well is very beneficial to the students that take sports seriously; the sports program has helped many students achieve their collegiate goals that they have aspired to have.
