Great school. Very large, which some people might fear the wont feel as welcome but just the opposite! Many different people ready to welcome you however you are. Hardworking school and student, all wanting to push you for success. Great school spirit as well, football games are always a hype.
Review Carmel High School
There are so many opportunities available for extracurricular activities. I am involved in 7 clubs at Carmel. There are just such a wide variety of clubs and activities it's hard to just choose one. There's Spanish club where we visit Spanish restaurants around Indiana (food and fun), friendship bracelet making club (self explanatory), and yoga club! If there's not a club at our school that you can dream of, you can create the club yourself. It's great.
Carmel High School is often rated among the top high schools in the United States, and after completing the three years plus the first semester of my senior year, I can attest to its truly fantastic qualities.
The teachers I have had the pleasure of meeting throughout regular, AP, and IB courses have been phenomenal overall. Each one has approached guiding education through creative, thought provoking, and inspiring methods. Our school principle, Mr. John Williams, also goes beyond what words can describe as does our entire administration. Myself and others feel that opportunities here are endless, from a list of over 100 clubs consisting of everything from Buffet Club to TechHounds to Interact/Key Club, endless athletic programs, and encouragement to be involved, I am constantly proud to be a part of this school, and I would encourage relocation to attend a high school at the caliber of Carmel.
