Carmel Schools: Education for Every Kind of Student

It’s no secret that the excellent schools in Carmel, Indiana are a big reason why the community is growing by leaps and bounds. The award-winning Carmel education system attracts families like a magnet.

Carmel, Indiana is, in fact, one of the fastest-growing towns in the Midwest. Named the “best place to live in the United States,” Carmel is an upscale suburb of Indianapolis, the state capital of Indiana. The area has experienced an explosion of growth in population and construction lately. And the Carmel school system is determined to keep up.

Carmel schools offer a high-quality per capita educational system second to few in the country. Every year, students in the Carmel Clay region walk off with statistics that are in the upper ranges for achievement, such as the almost 90% of high school graduates from Carmel High School who matriculated in four-year colleges, and the 4% of the remaining 10% who chose two-year schools instead. Many students from these Indianapolis high schools go on to attend Indiana colleges and universities.

Or the consistently excellent SAT scores
that prove these kids are coming away with a superior education: 53 points higher than the state average and 39 points above the average for the nation in math, and 40 points higher than the rest of the state and 31 points above the nation in verbal skills.

More awards and achievements have come to the Carmel Clay educational arena in the form of state and regional prizes for theatrical arts, Carmel music (choir, band, and orchestra), speech and student publications. The Science Olympiad Team made it to the top levels in the state as well as the nation.

Since 1966, the Carmel High School Greyhounds have also been state championship runner-up some forty times. These honors span the gamut of some twenty different sports offered.
