TikTok can’t get over huge Indiana school with fashion room, auto shop and natatorium

The size and amenities of an Indiana public high school were shown off in viral TikTok videos, and the internet is amazed.

The Carmel High School DECA club took TikTok viewers on a tour of the school, which offers plenty more than a typical high school.

Their gyms and cafeterias — plural — only touch the surface of what the Indianapolis-area school provides students. If the gyms weren’t enough, they also have their own wrestling room and natatorium, an indoor swimming center.

Carmel High School features a spacious auditorium and modern library, along with a cafe, planetarium and its own TV studio and live radio room.

The tour continued, as viewers got a peek into the school’s auto shop, wood shop and one of their many cooking rooms.

“I’m 25 and I wanna go here,” one person said.

“Can I attend Carmel High School as a 20-year-old,” one commenter asked.

Shop Real Essentials on Amazon for the softest loungewear

These days, we’re on the hunt for anything that’s (1) ultra-comfy and (2) ultra-affordable. After months of researching the best Amazon brands and rounding up a laundry list of retailer best-sellers, we’ve come to one conclusion:

Real Essentials is one of our favorite Amazon private brands for loungewear that we’ve essentially been shouting from the rooftops to everyone we know IRL (seriously, we are the definition of the 📣 emoji).

OK, word of advice — run to the Real Essentials’ Fleece Pullover Hoodie. When we say we work from home and sleep in them, we mean it, and you’ll appreciate its marshmallow-soft interior. Plus, while super cozy, they’re not options you’ll sweat in as they’re lightweight and airy.
