For the last couple of years the API scores have been dropping at Carmela. The district is finally stepping up and making changes at this school. Carmela has some of the finest teachers but without a good strong leader its hard to stay on task--especially with the class sizes being so overwhelming. Hopefully this year we will start seeing a change at Carmela.
