Increasing class sizes has become an issue affecting public schools across the nation, and Carmel High is no exception this year.
The average class size at Carmel High, as of 2010, was 19.4, which if you ask members of the CHS faculty, can be misleading.
“The most striking thing for me is how unbalanced [class sizes] are,” AP Government and Politics teacher Bill Schrier says. “I have two classes in the mid-twenties and two in the mid-thirties.”

The Botvin LifeSkills program will be delivered in age-appropriate iterations to students grades three through eight throughout Carmel Unified School District, as well as to students in health class at CHS. Junior year will be the last year that LifeSkills will be delivered.
LifeSkills is designed to promote improved decision-making, time management and communication during and after high school, counselor Jennifer Goodbody says.
“These really are skills for life,” Goodbody stresses. “There’s a misconception that this is a class about drug and alcohol awareness, and it isn’t.”

After a year of debate about the design and location of the new CHS science department building, construction is set to start Nov. 1.
The essential design will include three state-of-the-art classrooms and a shared prep room, but the official blueprint is still being re-drawn.
Last year, $2.6 million was allocated for the new science wing, and the hired architects asked the Carmel High science teachers what they would like in their new classrooms.

When you think of a Sandpiper, what comes to mind? Perhaps the image of a hippie playing the pan flute on the beach appears, or maybe a playful shorebird comes to mind.
According to Danny Funt, former chief editor of The Sandpiper, the student newspaper is “an important voice” for Carmel.
The Sandpiper is the voice that reported on important issues like students stranded by a bridge collapse in Big Sur, the voice that illuminated controversial topics like racism at CHS and the voice that revealed campus supervisor Don Perry’s mysterious past.
