US News released their ranking of public school across the nation today. Carmel High School ranked fairly high in the standings based on test scores, availability of Advance Placement classes, student teacher ratios and other metrics.
The high quality of the Carmel School district schools (three elementary, one middle school and the high school) has a material impact on home values within the district as families rent or buy to send their children to the schools. I am a father of two Carmel school district students (one in elementary and the other at the middle school) and like many parents am involved in the school and the ancillary services and activities the district provides to the students.
