46 Parent Reviews for Carmel High School

Carmel High School has a large variety of programs that cater to a student's interest. If a kid is willing to put work into it he can be very successful. I don't think any of the programs are overrated, kids can challenge themselves with AP courses if they wish. There is a college prep division in the ...  Read more

As the parent of 5 children who have attended Carmel Clay Schools, we moved to Carmel primarily because of the school system and we have not been disappointed. Three of our kids have graduated and gone on to college and we still have 2 students in the system. While the academics are rigorous, our ...  Read more

Wow! The previous folks posting must have large axes to grind. As a parent of a Carmel High School graduate, I can say that the academic instruction my son received at CHS fully prepared him for success at his select private college. He is now a college sophomore, and has often commented on how prepared ...  Read more

We moved out of the district BECAUSE of the schools. This district has to be the most overrated I've ever seen because the quality is extremely low in every respect. Carmel High school is too big but it does reflect the size of the egos of those affiliated. Most teachers are lazy and unconcerned about ...  Read more

The high school is way too big and the quality is poor. People are extremely proud of their sports programs, of course. It's the reason why they won't split their school to a manageable size. It is more important to dominate in sports than provide a quality education. It's humorous to watch the parents ...  Read more

There are many excellent teachers and programs at Carmel High School. However, when there IS a problem, it is difficult to get action to get it solved, and one may be met with incredulity should one dare to challenge the school's perfection. Even when many parents or students have tried to get a situation ...  Read more

We moved to Carmel 8 years ago and it was the best thing ever happened to my children. My oldest daughter (now in college) had to adjust to the rigorous academics, but she said this school really prepared her for college. She discovered her passion for broadcast journalism here (they have a student ...  Read more

My daughter is a Junior this year. She is NOT one of those super-students who takes 5 AP classes each year and has a 4.0+ GPA. She works hard at her non-weighted classes (has a GPA of 3.2) and sings in a choir and participates in a couple of clubs. We have been very happy with her education/experience ...  Read more

Teachers at this school always have the excuse "it's harder because you are at Carmel" In my junior year I was taking 5 AP classes and 2 honors classes so I went to see teachers outside of class for help because I would always have so much on my mind in class. Teachers started to think I was struggling ...  Read more

I love carmel high school so much! It's such a great environment to learn in. The school has high standards, but it is a great preparation for college. There are so many extra curricular activities to get involved in. The performing arts, sports, student government, and all of the clubs they offer ...  Read more
