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