Carmel High School Reviews
Review Carmel High School
Teachers really help students and my school is one of the top 100, so it's a good educational experience. We have a wide range of classes, from those that are designed to help the students who are really struggling to many AP classes that really help you prepare for college life. Most teachers really challenge the students, and give consistent information about expectations, which really helps to understand what you need to do to succeed and get good grades. They all know their subjects really well and can communicate information effectively to students. Most of the teaching departments coordinate their grading, so, for example, all English teachers have the same scores for tests and quizzes, and have similar assignments. This way if you have scheduling changes, it's easy to switch from one teacher to another for the same class. I like my school since it's the best in our area.
Carmel high school is unique in the sense that when students graduate from there they leave with more than just a diploma; they with an education worth having. The teachers here go above and beyond to not jut ensure you pass their classes, but to make you care about your learning experience. Being part of the AVID program made me especially prepared for applying to colleges and knowing I will succeed with the tools to success I learned. I am truly lucky to have attended Carmel High School, and I one day hope to go back there to make the next generation care about there education as a teacher myself.
This school is unique because it offers a lot of variety. The classes are really interesting and challenging, and include fun activities. One of my favorite classes was AP Chem, where we did many experiments- the most fun was 'genie in a bottle' where you put soap, water and chemicals in a beaker and watched it bubble and froth. I also love being in robotics. I've been in robotics all four years, and each year we build a robot for competitions in UC Davis and San Jose...my team has made the nationals twice. They have a strong STEM program and I'm able to take Honors and AP classes in math and science, which will really help when I study in college to be an electrical engineer. My friends and I have a time to hang out at lunch and it's a good environment, not like some schools where there are problems with violence or gangs. I would come here again- I'm going to be a senior in a couple of weeks and look forward to all the senior activities and graduation.
