Carmel High School is a Midwestern school that lacks culture, sophistication, and humility. Like many that suffer from hubris the school is unaware that they posses these characteristics. The school is preoccupied with reminding everyone how many State championships they have won and have created a school that fits nicely into their bubble that Carmel is the best place to live in the World. Similar to Washington D.C. this illusion may be beneficial for the very few connected families and the small percentage of kids that will have the opportunity to play sports. The school is so massive that the well connected rise quickly to the top and look down their nose at the rest of the school. Great place to live if you are not concerned with your kid being exposed to culture, diversity, and reality.

I hate this school the students are snobby and teachers are not involved in the class they never explain anything. The school has a very sink or swim mentality. This school is only good if you are rich and from carmel.

Your typical high school, except I'm unbearably large. Yes, they offer a wide variety of classes including a multitude of AP classes, but when the work offered in said classes is at a level so low they students hardly learn anything- not impressed. The only challenges my son faced was getting to class on time and without being bullied. If the average grade in the high school is high, it's because the work is so easy my three year old daughter could do it. Teach my students something.

I am a student at Carmel High School and it's truthfully much worse than people hype it up to be. I have a reasonable GPA, 3.3-3.5 in mostly AP classes. To start off, there are some teachers who are absolutely amazing in every aspect but they're overshadowed by the teachers who have zero talent teaching, I have both types and my grades in those classes reflect that. Carmel does have extremely difficult courses in every department, take that as you will. If your thinking of moving into the area I seriously recommend putting kids in elementary schools first. Carmel tends to get very cliquie and becomes harder to make friends the old you get. If I could, I would move schools instantly. Even thought I get good grades I don't feel like I'm learning anything and fear that I'll be unprepared for higher education.

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 administrative department which works with every single student during their junior and senior year. Their performing arts program is one of the best in the state. Many of the kids are pretentious, but that is the parent's fault and it's not something to blame on the school. They have a model principal that cares very much for the students. The discipline system is bureaucratic and careless at times, admittedly. If your child is willing to work hard this is one of the best schools in the country to send them to.

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 kids found college to be a breeze because they were so well prepared by the Carmel School system. The size of the school was intimidating to me but the kids have all found clubs, organizations and activities that they have participated in which has helped them connect and form great friendships. Our kids aren't all star athletes which has limited their ability to participate on the school athletic teams. Carmel has an incredible level of talent given the large student count. However, we 've found the Carmel Dads Club is a great way for kids to participate in sports. The teachers are highly engaged and committed to the success of their students. Ultimately there are pros and cons in every school system. If parents want their kids prepared for a higher education and a highly competitive job market in the future, you won't find a school system that will do a better job than Carmel.

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 he was compared to students coming from high schools elsewhere in the country. Yes, it is a large school, however, I found the staff and administrators to be extremely helpful when approached one-on-one. It is not - nor does it claim to be - anything but a large public school. Those expecting to be treated with 'kid gloves' should move their children to private schools. That said, I can tell you of many families who paid the big bucks for private high school and had no better luck gaining acceptance to select colleges than CHS grads. I firmly believe that the large, competitive environment at CHS more adequately prepares teens for success at the university level. Challenged: yes. Pampered: no.

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 delivering watered down academic material. Administration is even worse.It is a very mediocre system which offers very little student development. It's sink or swim which is fine for students who are over acheivers. But even then, they have a false sense of superiority. They may NOT be as smart as they think they are. They may be missing out on so many intangibles that are not included in a Carmel education. Carmel is very superficial and unsophisticated. Students tend to lack character, a moral compass and adequate balance. The large sports program enables this belief in their superiority coupled with poor sportsmanship. If other districts cared more for their wins, they too would stuff students in one huge building...but they won't. Carmel is VERY good at promoting themselves as much as the parents are promoting their kids. It's a political battlefield.

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 brag about how great the school is when the academics are typical of any public school. After giving the district six months, we pulled our three children out and enrolled them in private school. We sold our house and moved to a more tax friendly area. Carmel is not special and it certainly isn't hard. I was unimpressed with the teachers and thought many were lazy and unprofessional. I felt the administration was arrogant and not really interested in the students. Carmel is overrated in every way.

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 fixed, it can be hard to know if anything is being done because the school and principal will not acknowledge that it has any flaws whatsoever. They need to be more aggressive when addressing poor teaching. Kids and parents with high work ethic tend to mask teaching deficiencies and I daresay the administration isn't out there looking for problems to solve, let alone responding to parents who draw them to their attention.

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 run radio station and cable TV station, CHTV). My youngest, a junior, is involved in theatre and choir. Carmel high has 11 choirs, IB drama and film, a comedy sportz team, drama club, student directed one acts. Applied Music, a course for singers, goes to NYC every year, so does Drama. A highlight for me each year is Holiday Spectacular! Every child in choir participates and it blows me away every year! Carmel High has sports and clubs for everyone. My kids have always felt safe here. I have never had a problem reaching a teacher or a counselor. John Williams is a personable and charismatic principal. I see him at every event! I was impressed when he stopped by summer football practice to tell the players how proud he was of them (he did the same thing for the show choir). No school is perfect, but Carmel has come pretty close for our family.

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 at Carmel High School. Yes, the teachers expect more from the students at CHS than at her previous school, but that's ok. She's getting a fantastic education and will do well at college because of it. No, she won't be going to Harvard or Notre Dame, but she will be successful wherever she does go. The course selection at CHS is fantastic (the reason we chose Carmel over other school districts), and for the most part, the teachers are caring and competent. We did have a problem last year with a teacher (new teacher, very bright, but couldn't effectively pass on the knowledge), but after an email to the department chair, a meeting was quickly set up between the department chair, the counselor, the teacher, our daughter and us. The problem was resolved to our satisfaction.

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 with my grades and they woould say "at Carmel we have a more rigorous curriculum..." They always have that excuse to back their poor teaching. Teachers also barely get to know you. The administration is more concerned with students that do activities and their students as a whole to get higher AP and SAT scores.

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 are just fantastic. This school provides so many great opportunities for kids to get involved.

carmel is better than most schools but still has some problems. the reason that the school test scores are so high is not because of the teaching quality but because of the demographics. there are many successful families in carmel who teach their kids how to succeed as well. the main cause of success of standardized tests is not teaching quality. also, it is hard to go to a good school from carmel because the standards in carmel classes are so high. it makes the student look worse than he/she actually is.

Excellent school, but considering the socio-economic demographics of Carmel, IN, the students would do well no matter where they went to school. My daughter started at Carmel and we transferred her to North Central High School because of her high interest in Performing Arts. Carmel has a lot of cliques and is not very welcoming. We have met several parents who moved their kids because of social problems. Carmel is a great school, but very wealthy and very white.

Carmel HS exceeds expectaions and triumphs all other public schools in the INdianapolis area. My oldest went to Park Tudor (an expensive private school in the area) and my youngest goes to Carmel, and she recieves as great of an education as my son did. There is a wide variety of academics and an abundance of activities.

Carmel HS is excellent in almost every regard -- from the outstanding academics to an endless array of extracurricular activities. Their teachers take an interest in each and every student -- whether academically gifted or struggling. The only way a student would not succeed would be by the student's own intentional failure. Ambitious students will find almost every resource available to them to further their studies.

Carmel High School is the best school ever!!! I just finished my first year at college and I thought my classes were easier than high school where kids from other schools were struggling. I developed great relationships with many of my teachers at CHS and they are almost all really involved and excited to teach. The opportunities are endless from any number of over 100 clubs, to amazing sports teams, top rated performing arts programs, intermural sports, and an amazing student government. It is really easy to get involved the school does not seem too big after your first semester there. It is super easy to make friends and get involved. I would recommend everyone to go here.

My oldest child and I went to the same small private school and I was pleased, so when we moved to Carmel Schools, I was extremely worried. I could not be happier! I recalled one or two 'stand out' teachers from the previous school but when I attended the orientation at Carmel for both my younger children, I did not see a single teacher that was not a 'stand out' teacher. The small groups make it seem like a much smaller school and the course options are wonderful. My kids played freshman sports and had a great time. The football coaching staff is excellent. You honestly get a response within the hour most of the time whether you are e-mailing administration about spring break, teachers about grades or coaches with concerns and that includes the head football coach with a question about practices. I could not be happier with CHS.

I moved to Carmel a year ago and am now graduating. I've found that although numbers are large and you won't know people in your classes on the first day, by the end of the year you would have made a ton of friends. I loved my time here.

I was an '07 grad of carmel. i loved every minute of being a student there. yes its true you really can only participate in an activity or two and its hard to get on top. but its that way in the real world too. The classes are difficult and encourage you to work harder and actually become an active learner. I was extremely well prepared for college and find it much easier. I take a heavier course load than most students and get better grades. Carmel encourages you to go out and get what you want instead of handing it to you. All the opportunities are there you just have to take advantage.

As a parent of 2 students at Carmel High I can honestly say if I had it to do over again I would have never sent them to this school. It is too large and the teachers and coaches are only focused on top performers. If you have an average student don't expect a whole lot of attention either in the classroom or on the playing field. If you want your kid to be just a number then this is the school for you.

CHS is an amazing school. Like any other high school some teachers are better than others, but every one of them has a passion for teaching that makes the students want to learn. The admins are great people who really try to help the kids, and the principal is to die for. I have never met a man who has so much pride and love for his school and students. This school has an incredible amount of school pride. There are no words to describe the energy at pep rallies and football games.. I have seen nothing like it in any other high school around here. I am going to be a junior at CHS next year, and every Carmel student I know can't wait for school to start again. Carmel has it all to make it a top public school; The academics, extra circulars, and school pride.

If you have an A+ student and/or star athlete for a child I give Carmel a 10. However, if you have a C student or below it gets a 3 rating. Carmel is too large to offer the average athlete any opportunities to compete and they teach at the A-B student level. The average or below student quickly falls behind and/or fails. The classes are too large and the teachers have too many students to provide any individualized help. Which is why private schools and 'learning centers' just flourish in Carmel. If you have a special needs student even with a very slight LD, forget about it. They focus solely on college prep and offer no career center or trade classes for students who are not on the college track. Sorry, Carmel HS does not live up to the hype.

Carmel High is one of the premier secondary schools in the country. We had 2 children graduate from CHS (2003 and 2005), and currently have a sophomore here. These 3 very different children all had great experiences at this same large school. And 'large' is one reason they had so many opportunities to be involved and succeed in different areas. Music and performing arts at CHS cannot be beat; the visual arts department is wonderful; science course offerings and teachers are excellent. Currently, one child now studies science at a very selective private college, while the other attends a very selective music school. Both were extremely well prepared by teachers, courses and activities at CHS. Due to numerous moves, our children had previously attended small private schools, public schools in other states, and schools in Europe. None equaled the great education they got at Carmel. And, the Principal is fabulous.

This school is blue ribbon school, with a graduation rate over 98 percent. College is said to be a breeze by my children. If you look at the ISTEP results this school is often over 95 percent! That says alot, especially when other schools you look at are in the 50 or 60 percentiles. If anyone on this review forum says that this school is hard to get involved in...give me a break they have over 120 clubs ranging from harry potter club to buffet club. If other peoples children couldnt get involved it wasnt the schools fault. Yes there are a lot of people but thats easier to find people that are most like you. The Principle is to die for! The guy is the nicest man ive met in a while! Principle John Williams is fantastic and knows most of the kids! This school is amazing!

The size of the school makes it incredibly easy to get involved. I am a junior at CHS. I am currently in Science Club, Science Olympiad, Symphony Orchestra, Math Club, Piano Club, Webteam. I am also a football video manager. My only complaint is that there are too many clubs for me to do, but only 5 days a week. Making friends is incredibly easy as well. With this much diversity in a high school, it's easy to find people like you. Also, there are plenty of teachers in the school. The ratio of students:teachers is still the same as any other public school.

Having had one son graduate from Carmel High School and another attend one year, I can no longer recommend it to other parents. My youngest son is now attending a charter school and we are much happier with it. The principal and administrators of Carmel schools are into harsh, scare tactics type discipline regardless of underlying motivation or influences. They would not work with us or our son's therapist to help him deal with bullies and other problems. The amount of homework given nightly was also a nightmare. My oldest son is now in college and has less stress and homework than he did at Carmel High School. Carmel is so large that the administrators and teachers have little interest or time to deal with students as individuals. They are mainly concerned with getting high test scores and winning teams, rather than helping struggling teenagers succeed.

CHS is what I looked forward to in my teenage life. It is a safe and smart environment for everyone. Some say it is big, but that is for the good. A student can make more friends, and find other people that share their same interests. Clubs, sports, and classes are what bring the kids together. CHS has many clubs, high quality sports teams, and an amazing range of classes that prepare students for college. Even if someone isn't a top-notch athlete, this school has a great intramural program. Kids can get their friends together and play flag football, ping pong, basketball, and many other games just for the fun of it. A person only has one chance to experience high school. By being apart of CHS, those people can prepare for the future, and also enjoy every step of the way there.

We moved here from another state. My student is a freshman at CHS, and I have two other students in middle and elementary schools. We relocated to Carmel because of the academic reputation of the schools. If I were to make the decision again, I would move into the Fishers, Westfield or Zionsville schools. The ISTEP scores are great, but Carmel is too big, even with the new freshman center. It has very little diversity. Unless your child is a superstar athlete or cheerleader, participating in sports is not likely. The system promotes a strict path, and thinking outside the box is not promoted or encouraged. The pervasive attitude from the teachers and administration is one of condescension, and all feel they have too much to handle. I do not recommend moving here from anywhere else. But the scores are great.

We relocated from California to Carmel with two high school students new to Carmel High. The school is way too big for its own good, detached, and lacking teacher/parent communication. My kids would meet someone than never see them again because the school is so big. This is not college, but high school. I think Fishers has the right idea with the building of their new high school. We're back in California, and I'm glad my kids will not have to graduate from Carmel High.

I will be a senior at Carmel High School this coming year. I love Carmel. There are so many opportunities that only a large school could offer. All kids have the ability to do well because each teacher has a unique teaching style. Class sizes are not too large and all of the different options have something for everyone. Each teacher is very qualified to teach their subject. Most teachers teach with a passion that makes you want to learn. Carmel athletics are also great. Most of the sports teams at Carmel go into post season tournaments and several go on to win state titles. Clubs and groups at Carmel are a perfect example of the options at Carmel. There is a club or group for anything you could think of. If you don't see something you like, you can start your own club. Carmel is the land of opportunities.

I have a daughter that graduated from Carmel in 2004 and has found herself extremely prepared for her first year of college. Yes, it is a big school; however, if you ask her, she would tell you it did not seem too big. The kids find their own way. It is parents that are intimidated by the size, not the kids. I've known too many parents that have put so much fear into their kids about the size of the high school, the kids start school afraid. I have a daughter going into the new freshman center, we can't wait!

We've had two children graduate CHS (1999 and 2004). The opportunities for the children at CHS are unlimited. If any student, or parent says it's hard to get involved at CHS, they are just making excuses. They aren't trying to get involved. Children get out of it what they put into it. For a public school, there is none better. The school offers excellent academic's and seems to continually strive to provide more challenging classes and opportunities to those students who want it. CHS offers an array of classes not found in most schools as well as a great Performing Arts Department and Athletic Dept. CHS is truly like a university. Opportunity abounds at CHS and prepares them well for college. It was an experience my children will always cherish along with the lifelong friends they made there.

I am currently a student at CHS and I think that it is an amazing school. If students take the time to get involved in the school the highschool experience is a lot of fun. There are a lot of students at the school, but that makes it an even better experience as you have so many people with the same interests as you. Having many students makes the high school seem like a big family. If any student doesnt like CHS it is probably because they havent joined any clubs, sports, or any other extra curricular activity. The teachers are very nice and are eager to help and student who needs it. There are also quite a few advanced courses which is a big plus.

I graduated from Carmel High School in '01. I am currently a senior at Indiana University and feel that college has been a breeze, thanks to Carmel High School. I was involved in multiple clubs and multiple Varsity sports at Carmel: Key Club, Volleyball, Lacrosse, Radio Broadcasting, and art shows. If any student tells you it is hard to get involved in Carmel, they are just making excuses. Most of the student body is involved in the school somehow. Plus, I couldn't have wished for a better education. My classes at Indiana University are a LOT easier than classes at Carmel. My classmates agree. Friends of mine from other schools in Indiana (even private schools) think college is a lot harder than high school. Does that say much?

The school is way too big. The teachers are overworked and detached. They aren't unsupervised and allowed to do whatever they want. Too much attention is put on activities. Because you can't participate in much. So kids have to spend way too much time on their activity to stay on top to participate. The parents allow the school system to do whatever they please. They have a block system. Who can concentrate for 90 minutes? The parents in this community need to stand up to the administrators and demand changes at this school. To many parents just assume the school is fine. Any education expert will tell you that a school should not have 3500 students. I pulled my child out and put him in a private school and it's wonderful. Wake up!

I graduated from Carmel High school in 2002. I can not understand why someone would say it is hard to find opportunity. There are so many ways to get involved. CHS offers a huge advantage in different departments. I am a business major in college and I am far ahead of my class mates now because of CHS. I also had the opportunity to take classes in construction and art. The art opportunities at CHS are unmatched at other high schools. I feel like graduating from CHS put me ahead of the others around me and gave me a chance to meet great people...including teachers that I still talk to today. Every time my parents needed something from a teacher they were more than happy to help them out. If you can't find opportunities its because you are lazy and unwilling to look for them.

The school system is in shambles. Knows nothing about collaboration with teachers and parents. A puppet for the school board. A great academic school because of the teachers and kids. Kids are from successful families and know what it takes to succeed. Too big and too many kids fall through the cracks (15-30) a year. School tries to justify this by using percentages (4,000 kids in hs) i though they were there for all students, not just the bright ones!

My child is a freshman at CHS and she went into CHS hoping for many great experiences but now after 6 months none of those experiences have come along. The school is just too big to accept and make the students in it feel like family. Above, someone stated how you get to meet so many people, but attending a school this big doesn't leave time to 'meet' these people you only 'see' alot of people. Yes, CHS is good academically but high school is a time for personal developement and growth and CHS students are missing out of many personable experiences by attending a school where you name is only a number.

I am appalled at the previous review of Carmel High School. Yes, it is a big school, but that's what makes it so exciting. You can meet so many new people Carmel. It has over 100 activities to get involved in-from the Harry Potter Club, to Science Olympiad, to the Guitar Club. There is something for everyone. On top of that, the teachers are outstanding. They really care about the students. I just got back from my 6th 'meet the teacher' night, and I continue to be extremely impressed with the quality of education. My daughter, who is a junior in college, tested out of 21 credit hours thanks to the excellent preparation at Carmel High School. The music department is one of the top rated in the country. My daughter is in one of six jazz bands, when most schools have none. We love it! Big is better for us.

The school is way to big for its own good. It is hard to find out what is going on. Students are being hurt by the inability to participate in different programs. Unless you have time to really dig into the school you can't find out what is going on. SRT's are required but don't seem to be used for what they were intended only to give teachers a break. There doesn't seem to be any standard for teachers. Overall, it is probably the worst school I have been involved with. In comparison to IL, MN, there is none. The ratings on the school I have seen are totally inaccurate. As a side, there are some really good teacher but they don't seem to be supported. You should give this to the students, after all they are the ones that matter.....
