Carmel Clay Schools Reviews

Personally I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the Carmel Clay Schooling system, from the time that I began publicly going to school until now. After being home-schooled for half a decade, I made a big switch in fifth grade from having mommy and daddy by my side at all times to only being able to see them about three hours a day. However, after this minor set back, with the schools support and a few new friends I ended up loving every second in my school, from the supporting teachers to the lovely clean floors.

I have been attending Carmel Clay Schools since 3rd grade. They also held me to a very high standard and continued to push me academically. For that reason I did very well and graduated high school with an impressive transcript. However I thought I was an idiot for most of school. They need to find a balance between pushing students to be better and giving positive reinforcement. The school system only recognizes students who are above and beyond, winning awards, breaking records, etc. They then neglect to recognize anyone else. I believe it would help students more if teachers would just take a moment to let students know how intelligent and capable they are on occasion. In a large school they often gets lost.
My experience at Carmel Clay Schools started when I was in 4th grade. To be honest, I was extremely nervous to attend Carmel Clay Schools coming from a private school. I came to find out that public schools were not much different from private. The only difference was the number of students in the classroom. Which in fact I really enjoyed. Now I am a senior still attending Carmel Clay Schools and I could not imagine not. The reason being I love getting out of my comfort zone every day and being forced to meet and talk to new people. With that, I also love the classes and opportunities that Carmel Clay Schools offer. The only thing I think I would change is starting school later. Therefore, more students would be more alert and awake. In result, there would be higher test scores and smarter students.
