Carmel Central School District Reviews

Teachers of Carmel Central School District are amazing. Kindergarten starts in Kent, at either Primary school or Elementary school, where teachers provide unparalleled education for every child. We learned math, social studies, English, music, science, and technology; we were enriched for 5 years.

Then, we moved on to middle school, at George Fischer. There, subjects advanced to algebra, global history, adolescent lit, music instruments, creative art, foreign language, earth science, and computer programs. We began to mature in our 4 years here.

Finally, education reached climax in High school. Carmel High offered calculus & statistics, human history, adult lit, music performance, free-form art, advanced linguistics, physics & chemistry & biology, and programming. 4 more years of joy!

Are there things I wish I did differently? Yes. But going to CSD was not one. For that, I thank every one of my teachers, my supportive family, and an excellent peer network.

Thanks, Carmel Central!

Carmel Central School District has great staff that care about the success of their students. There are many programs that help students who struggle with certain subjects. Their middle school, George Fischer Middle School, was recently voted for greatest school spirit and was recognized on the news. When it comes to sports, the whole community comes together to support their peers/students. Besides sports, Carmel Central School District has an amazing music program. There are different music instructors for orchestra, band, and chorus, which allow for the students to have a better education in each of those categories. However, there is only one auditorium in the district, which is located at the middle school. If I could make a single change to this district, it would be to add an auditorium to the high school. The academics and sports have ample resources, while music could use more attention.
I enjoyed my time at the Carmel Central School District. AP courses and the high school dual enrollment program that juniors/seniors can do with DCC allowed me to enter college with 34 credits earned already. With my university accepting these credits, I am able to graduate a year early from college. I never experienced awful teachers, obviously not everyone is going to be great but I had mostly exceptional teachers. The school gives you a lot of chances to improve your resume for college and want students to be successful. I went into college well prepped for what college professors expected.
