Carmel High School has so many strengths, especially through the 9-12 grades curricula, beautiful campus, and many dedicated teachers and faculty. Coordination amongst teachers regarding class projects and test schedules needs to be strengthened. However, the greatest weakness from my viewpoint is the school climate being one that neither acknowledges or celebrates diversity. If the Carmel School District would commit to the education that is needed in this area, then model that for students and parents, we might (in years to come) find the CHS community to be a more "endearing" one, filled with wonderful academic and social experiences. Perhaps then, more families representing a diversity of backgrounds would remain in the Carmel community.

I beleive that Carmel High discriminates against students with mental and physical diabilities on the 504 Plan in order to maintain high test scores.

My son attended CHS for 2 years and as a family who moves a lot, we found the culture of the Carmel schools to be closed to outsiders. People are nice, but are less willing to include outsiders. The teachers are mostly fantastic, the education and the extras the schools offer like "Rachel's Challenge" are amazing. The campus is beautiful, technology forward and open. It is an awesome school, but the social aspect can be challenging for newcomers.

Some of the staff and teachers here are wonderful, and I have nothing but praise for them, but Carmel High is severely lacking in intelligent leadership, and it is plagued by racism and a class based system in which all but the wealthiest students are treated poorly. I do not blame the students, because they are only following the example their snobbish parent's set. However, anyone who is perceived as different will be an outsider and will be targeted for harassment and bullying. They also do not listen to the majority of parents. They only listen to board members and the wealthiest parents. Each year there is a parent survey. Each year parents make their feelings known. Though most of us are concerned with bad leadership, poor communication with that leadership, and a horrible counseling department, the admin and board instead say their primary goal is to beautify the school.

I find many kids are doing some for of illegal activities including under aged drinking and use of marijuana. The rate at which these kids do this seems to be 50% or higher, which is awful. The classes offered there are nice, but limiting, as most schools are these days. There is a general lack of discipline and the 'bullies' go either unpunished, or not punished severely enough. Over all, I found the school to be a terrible learning environment.

Five stars! Incredible academic counselors that go above and beyond the call of duty, engaged active student leaders, friendly warm environment and a welcoming of diversity in all ways. Anyone paying for a private school tuition is wasting their money when they have CHS as an option. My son just graduated and was accepted into a program at a private University in Southern California with a 5% acceptance rate, obviously he was more than prepared. The creative arts, music and video production programs are impressive. There is also a great ROP program so obviously CHS gets that kids want viable options. They also have impressive programs for addressing alcohol, drugs and teen depression issues. They are realists! Still have two more there and I could not be happier!

I think this High School does a good job of including a more diverse population than you would think for Carmel. It is all there. Something for everyone. A lot of AP courses and ROP courses for those wanting to work. THe expectations for this school are unrealistic. People are looking for a private school in a public school. The principal keeps it together. You can go anywhere from here. Why go to a private school?

Carmel has wonderful academics and extracurriculars. Staff and students couldn't be better.

I read the reviews, something that has changed in the last 2 years is adding Mary Bull to CSUD in charge of curriculum. She initiated changes, backed by PADRE Parents that support the academic accomplishments over the teacher comfort zone. Also PADRE Parents provides a system to award teachers that are innovative and interested in teaching. I think the foundation is there to improve the results in this school. As far as parent involvement, we have an average of 30 parents at the PADRE Parents meetings, all are welcome. We have a smaller group at the business meetings. Currently there is no one from the school board who is running the meetings. They attend, but, are not in charge.

I am actually a current freshman student attending Carmel High School and i have read all of the other Parent comments and i find them to be completely unrealistic. Some of them said that CHS has poor parent involvement from Padre Parents. But this is completely untrue. Just this year(2007) Padre Parents have provided thousands of $'s to our brand new pool(just Finished this year). they always help us out. CHS is a great school.

Posted February 26, 2007

Carmel High would be a great school if the Padre Parents were relpaced with more open minded parents. The parents that head these meetings also tend to head the school board so it's always their way and no one else has any real input no matter whether or not they attend the meetings. Padre Parents is treated more as a social event than something to help the students. And when they do try to help the students, they invest in websites like naviance that are completely useless to students. A fear that their child is doing drugs has now enstated drug testing at this school, which is also ridiculous. Though it's voluntary, if the parents want their child tested, the kid really has no choice. Parents at this school are so set on preparing their child ready for college, yet they baby them through every step of high school.

Academic programs obviously were fine because my son did well on several of the AP exams and will be going to a UC college. Music program was wonderful. Kudos for Mr. Handley who is inclusive rather than being exclusive. U rating on sports. Parent involvement was minimal.

I'm new to this area, I've been here about 1 1/2 years and my daughter came from a catholic school into Carmel High. She has done wonderfully. Her grades are A's and she has made friends there and doesn't seem to have any problems. I'm sure there are many kids that she thinks are too upitty or think they are all that, but she just works on her studies and hangs out with her type of friends. I have noticed there are a great deal of bratty kids or spoiled rich kids, but you know what they are the ones with the bad grades and getting into trouble..now thats sad. I think its what you make it. good luck and consider this school it's really not bad.

If your child is into sports more than academics, this school may be for you.

You would think that a rich town like Carmel would have a better high school. So sad.

Posted April 20, 2005

Quality of academic programs is marginal. The math program in particular is severely lacking. Classes are either taught at a pace above Honors level in Calc. and Alg II, or at a remedial level where all topics are not covered. AP test pass rates are misleading as not all students in AP classes are required or encouraged to take the exams. Very local school with large percentage of parent/teacher/principal alumni. Great if your student's ambition is to attend the local Community College, or if he/she is self-driven/motivated independently, otherwise be prepared to supplement the counseling section as they are not particularly helpful individually and take a very general approach of providing paperwork/dates; offering little encouragement to the average student's ambitions for UC or Cal State Admissions.

Carmel High is a great school. Like any public school, it is what you make it. Kids that have problems with drugs have problems with drugs at home and out in the community too. We see a school that is well run and an administration that really likes the students. All the students. It is easy to complain about a school. We as parents should be asking, what are we doing to make it better? And don't fool yourself. The local private schools have the same problems. You just don't hear about them. My son had a great time there and is now completing his college. Some of these comments don't describe the place we know.

As a graduate from CHS and having my two sons and a daughter-in-law graduate, yes, I have fond memories of CHS. It's sad to see the negative comments about the school. All the students my sons were associated with, as well as, my sons, went onto college, good careers and have good lives. Isn't that what high school is about? No school is perfect and Carmel has had it's hits with lack of funding to support this school. Yet, the parents are very supportive and fill in where ever they can and do so! Yes, sports are a big thing, but they are also good for school unity and activities. The students are all great, contibuting to the community in many ways! I vote for positive comments to CHS!

I have had three diverse students attend this school in the past eight [years] and I must have been out of my mind! I have been shocked to find that blatant racism exists in what is touted as being 'educated administration and faculty'. It is not a reality based education nor an environment for students of the real world. This is a school where learning comes secondary to social expections.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
