Carmel Clay Schools Reviews

Carmel Clay Schools has been reputed as one of the best public school districts in the state of Indiana. For the most part, it does rightfully deserve this recognition; the sports and academic programs are some of the best. As a high-achieving student, there are numerous AP classes in order for me to learn at a higher level, alongside numerous dual credit opportunities. As for sports, the rankings speak for themselves. There is sizable population of Asian-Americans, African-Americans, and Hispanic people, which allows for a mix of cultures and beliefs culminating under a singular roof. In addition, there are more extracurricular options than one could imagine. Yet, I feel as though the school could improve the quality of teachers, specifically in the Science department. While they are qualified to teach, many teachers are unwilling to work with students who are unable to understand, and they continuously shrug off concerns of students.

I really like how our school district is so diverse. There are a bunch of people and they’re from all sorts of backgrounds. I also like how every school that I’ve gone to is very motivated at winning big achievements. Many of my teachers like winning, which makes us better skilled as students. However, there’s a lot of pressure to go over the top to the point that many of the students will overwork themselves. Many of the students are very stressed and they don’t get enough sleep and we’re all ver competitive.
Carmel Clay schools pretty much meet up to the stereotypes. Carmel schools are full of wealthy families and because of that carmel spares no expense. The schools are full of multipurpose facilities and multiple sports complexes. Teachers are hit or miss and same with the administrators. Overall, the students leave carmel schools more than prepared for college and beyond.
