Due to my husband's job, we had to move three times so I can compare Mt. Carmel to 3 different schools. My child's 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Malires, was so conscientious. My child had difficulty adjusting b/c of 3 moves and her grandmother recently died. Dr. Clanton, the counselor, saved my daughter's life! I don't know what we would have done without her. Dr. Clanton spend hours AFTER school working with my daughter and my whole family. Dr. Clanton and Mrs. Malires are nothing short of EXTRAORDINARY!!! Never met the principal.

My grandson goes to Mt. Carmel Elementary school. I have really enjoyed him going there. It has been a pleasure to see him grow right before my eyes. His teacher is very caring and works hard to make sure he is prepared for the first grade. He wanted to play all the time but, the teacher in her caring way explained that he had to work hard and be prepared for the next grade. I think he understood and has since stop play and become more serious about his work. I am a proud grandparent. Mt. Carmel is a great place to start your childs education.

I am a Grandmother picking up my granddaughter at her first day in Kindergarten and was extremely lost in the mechanics of getting her prior to her after school care. The staff at this school from the front desk to the Principle were so great in helping me get my granddaughter during the rush of "school out". I heard many wonderful things about this school but now I have experienced what I hope to be many more.

My daughter came from a private school to Mt Carmel last year. She could read when she went into the first grade there but with in six weeks she was reading like she was born to do it. I am very very pleased with this school, and this year is looking like it is going to be even a better one.

My son had Mrs. June Young for his First Grade Teacher. She is a wonderful teacher, he was very shy and withdrawn before joining her class. Over the course of the school year she brought out his confidence and he excelled both personally and academically. If only all schools had a Mrs. Young; she's a strong yet compassionate teacher.

I was very impressed with the K level program. The instruction my child received was amazing. Sadly the teacher my child has in the first grade is not keeping up the pace set and I am not impressed. Be attentive to which instructors your child receives.

The reading coach at Mt. Carmel excels above and beyond to make sure the teachers are prepared for reading instructions and trained to helped students. My son has always benchmarked, he does not enjoy reading as much as I would like for him to. However, the teachers have always given encouragement and kept me informed with his progress. The teachers at Mt. Carmel are caring and give students the most balanced academic and disciplined environment that allow the students to learn. I love the teachers and parent involvement is not lacking at this school. It is outstanding.

My child was moved there to a special ed class where he could receive the training he needed and deserved. From a passing by the skin of his teeth grade at his other school to A/B honor roll there. And the school staff is great. His self esteem has gone off the charts since he has been there.
