Carmel Clay Schools Reviews

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.
Review Carmel Clay Schools
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.
Carmel Clay Schools is one of the most premier schooling districts in the state of Indiana. They have maintained a tradition of excellence in their academics and athletics. They have produced many hardworking citizens who are currently studying or are employed in a vast spectrum of professional fields. Their athletics program is one of the best in the country. The culture is very friendly and diverse, it's almost impossible not to make a friend or two at Carmel and their is a culture of acceptance at the school that you may not find at other schools.The facilities are still very well taken care of despite how long Carmel High School has been around and the custodians take great care of the school. High school is a critical time in everyone's life and going to a school like Carmel High School will give you an endless door of opportunities and new ideas to access.
