Dont know.  I have heard this over the past year or so.  HSE and Fishers are both at or near 3000 students, which is full capacity plus for both schools.  District continues to grow.  They will add a 3rd school.

Death, taxes and Carmel girls swimming winning state titles. Greyhounds dominate for 33rd straight title: https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2019/02/09/carmel-girls-swimming-extends-national-record-33rd-straight-title/2767378002/

On display at the finals of the 45th annual IHSAA swimming and diving state championship Saturday was everything that makes Carmel’s girls program the finest in the United States.

En route to capturing the 33rd-straight state title at the IUPUI Natatorium, the Greyhounds showed both individual brilliance and depth, completing a season that had more than a few twists and turns.

The Greyhounds ran up 413 points to claim the title. So dominant were the winners that the runner-up and third-place point-totals (167.5 and 165) combined wouldn’t have beaten Carmel.

Carmel did it by winning all three relays (the 200 medley and 400 freestyle for the 11th-straight year), by taking three individual event victories and by placing at least two swimmers in the top eight in each event, except for diving and the 100 breaststroke.

...

Perhaps this is one of the reasons the citizens of the Carmel Clay Government School District choose not to split up their mega school hegemony.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons the citizens of the Carmel Clay Government School District choose not to split up their mega school hegemony.

 

Based on the administrators and families I've talked with in Carmel, this is not even close to a factor in their decision. If they had 2 or even 3 high schools in the district, they would still likely be very competitive in most activities. They have a building with enough space, lower levels apparently show small class sizes coming up, and they have a great reputation with their current school district. Why should incur the cost of building an entirely new school and then be well under capacity for their current building?

People often think of LN as a weak MIC conference team because their football team has struggled. Their football team is still pretty good. It's just hard to overcome in the MIC. I believe they have around 17 sports and typically win sectional in 8-12 sports each year. Their athletic programs are doing just fine overall.

You could be one of the top 15 teams in the state and be 0-7 in the MIC. It's *that* tough. Coach Mallory has done a fantastic job at LN and his teams are competitive. And yes, LN is an athletic powerhouse in a lot of sports, most notably basketball.

Several years ago, HSE was considering a third high school that would be an early college-only-type school with no extracurriculars, similar to Ben Davis University.

However, the students would still be eligible to play sports for either Fishers or HSE based on where they lived in the district, and the enrollments of the students at the third school in each half of the district would count toward the original schools. It was a way of reducing capacity without having to build an entirely new HS campus - a building without a fieldhouse, baseball field, football stadium, et al, is a lot cheaper.
