      Keep Carmel Elementary Open

  • Carmel Elementary School is the neighborhood school for the Arts and Design District.
  • rated Carmel Elementary School the 5th best public elementary school in the state of Indiana for 2018.
  • But now the Carmel Clay School Board wants to close it, permanently. Children from the neighborhood, despite all that is being done to make the area more walk-able and family friendly, will not have the option of a school to walk to.
  • We will be left with no centralized elementary school.
  • This will affect: Parents, Business owners, all property owners in downtown Carmel and just the overall feel of our neighborhoods and the Arts and Design District.
  • Carmel Elementary is currently at 91% enrollment
  • There is no answer as to where the neighborhood children will go should the school close.
  • The school board wants to build a new school, west of Meridian, leaving no elementary schools in the central part of the city.
