    Carmel High School has been chosen by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as a 2016 California Honor Roll recipient!


    The California Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Our school stood above other schools in the state because of our success in getting students to grade level achievement and beyond. School districts receiving this distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.  For school districts with high schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.


    We did not apply for this award (they found us!) and it is a great honor to have been chosen. Thanks to the hard work of the students and teachers here at Carmel High School, we are being recognized for our achievement. This is a testament to the relentless focus on results that our school has shown over the years and to the hard work of our entire school community.

  • CHS students deliver groceries in Big Sur

    Carmel High students and teachers deliver groceries to classmates' families south of the Pfeiffer Canyon in Big Sur.


    Carmel High teachers Leigh Cambra (Health), Bridget Randazzo (Spanish), and senior Caroline Mierzwa have created a program to deliver groceries to families in need. So far, they’ve collected over $1000 in donations.

    Carmel High School student Chantal Gonzalez took the initiative to seek out her neighbors who live south of the Pfeiffer Canyon—where the bridge has been out for months—to see what they needed. Then Leigh, Bridget, and ASB Secretary Tammy Waldman purchased all the items, organized and bagged them up and went on their way to Big Sur on Thursday, April 20. They were joined on the trip by students Caroline Mierzwa, Diego Cabrera, Diego Salinas, Katya Fredericksen, Hailey Rowe, Coral Barrett, Alex Myers, Julia Kurz, and Nick Haws, as well as staff members Diana Vita, Patricia Hunt, and Shannon Rains

    The group hiked the half-mile trail  that zig zags up the side of Pfeiffer Hill, elevating 500 feet, loaded down with gallons of milk, beans, rice, eggs, diapers, juice, and more. At the head of the trail, they met up with the families at the post office, who were very happy to have the fresh food. 

    The group has enough donations to do a few more deliveries and is tentatively scheduling the next delivery for Thursday, May 4. 

    Hats off to this community-service-minded team of CHS students and staff!

    A collaboration between students from Carmel High and River Elementary

    Students from Señora Bean's CHS Spanish for Heritage Speakers class have been working together with River’s 3rd grade students from Mrs. Fletcher's class and 5th grade students from Mrs. Tiffany's class to write a Bilingual Hispanic Cookbook. The first collaboration consisted of small groups, each dedicated to one of the 21 different Spanish speaking countries.  Students learned details about their assigned Spanish speaking country, completed map activities and discussed typical foods and recipes from their Spanish speaking country.
