Notes from the Principal

Dear CHS Community,

Our families are our greatest supporters of our teachers and staff when it comes to the academic, social and emotional development of our students. Your support is what makes CHS a special place in which to learn and grow. We appreciate your partnership, and we thank you, especially during the holiday season for your support of our students.

We will continue to cherish our strong home-school partnership that exists within our community as we embark on a new year full of hope, promise and optimism.

I wish you and your family health and happiness during the holiday season and a happy new year!


Anthony DiCarlo
Interim Principal, Carmel High School

  • High School Students Benefit from Story Sessions

    Gather around the (faux) fire for story time at Carmel High School.

    Recently, Carmel High School’s library offered campfire story sessions for students during free periods or lunch periods and to say it was a hit is an understatement. During the recent spooky season, students were invited to head to the library during their free periods or lunch periods for several storytelling events. With plenty of comfortable seating, and optional stuffed animals for support, students settled in around a faux campfire in the library’s lab for the readings.

    Read more about the story time sessions at Carmel High School.
