Carmen high school is a school with little diversity in the student body, but over the years we have had students of all races enroll. This school is a very challenging college prep school, but the challenges help the students grow. Not only do the teachers help a student during school hours, but they set "office hour" for the students who are struggling to attend and get extra help. Overall, the hard work one does all four years in this school helps a student tremendously!

I am currently I a senior at Carmen High School of Science and Technology and overall the school was pretty good. They allow their students to be involve in the community and are very dedicated for their students to succeed. They want their students to push themselves and try their best. However, they're are somethings that the school can change. For example, the school should not make students wear uniform. Students should feel and be able to express themselves in the way they dress. Also, the school should be more diverse, so that we can know more and celebrate other cultures. Lastly, the school should have better technology materials and other resources.
Carmen is an extremely unique school. It consists of teachers that push their students hard in a way that eventually pays off and students who really care about their future. It’s rigorous in the best way possible. The only thing that Carmen needs is more art programs that would allow the students to better express themselves whether that may be through art, acting, dancing, etc.
