Teachers and staff are great. Given how the dynamics of the school has changed over the years, the teachers try hard to develop character in the children.

The school displays character definitions all around the school. They work hard to actually talk to the kids, helping them to not only learn the definitions of character but to walk it out as well.

I have been a parent of Mt Carmel ES for 10 years now and I must say that MCES is totally AWESOME!! The principal, DR. McGill, the faculty and the staff, as well and the PTA, are all dedicated to the academic growth and personal growth of the students. MCES has a mixture of all races and backgrounds, but everyone is one big family! The parent and community involvement is outstanding. I have enjoyed my years at MCES as a parent. My youngest child is currently in the 1st grade, so I still have a few more years before my family's time will be finished at MCES and I am going to enjoy every minute of it!

Our children have experienced great things over the last few years at MCES. This school offers a family friendly atmosphere while maintaining a great level of structure and academic rigor geared towards helping elementary aged students succeed. We are extremely pleased with the progress our children have made as their teachers continue to encourage them to do their best.

Great school teachers and staff. The motivation is outstanding. my daughter is excelling in almost every area and is acceptable in the couple of measuring areas. I think that is the top priority for schools, get the student motivated to learn and measure their progression to the next levels. Mount Carmel has gotten my girl to really enjoy school.

AWEFUL EXPERIENCE. Attempted to contact the school for a tour as a new kindergarten parent, no answer several times when calling the school. Then left 3messages without a return call. Stopped into school , unable to meet with administer, left message for him to call, NO CALL BACK. refused a school tour, contact with teachers, or ANY OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT KINDERGARTEN, with the exception of where I'd need to register my child. Was offered to return in June for a tour of the school but no teacher access until back to school night, all I had was some basic questions about kindergarten. Parents BEWARE, what are they hiding?

This school has had a great academic reputation for many years. The teachers are dedicated and encourage parent involvement. My child spent his entire elementary school career at this school and I had no complaints, until last year. Unfortunately, a member of the administration made a decision that exposed his lack of morale. This decision has affected the faculty. Where once there was unity, there is now a clear split due to immorality. I am glad my child is out of this school, as it seems to be that the beginning of this school year has shown signs of chaos.

The treaching staff are all awesome!! My daughter loved her teachers, Dr McGill and Miss Stewart!! They truly care about the students and teaching. If I had a problem it was taken care of the very day or next day I emailed or called the staff. I wish it was middle school too so my daughter could continue going there.

My youngest son is a Kindergardner at MCES and I am extremely unahppy with the school. The expectations that they have fro 5-6 year old children amazes me. They have the kids play tag outside but then send home letters when a child is playing a little too aggressive. After speaking with other parents with kidnergardners there they have the same issues. The notes that are sent home for issues are rediculiuos. My son in high school does not have as strict administrators and staff as this school. I believe they need to step back and realize these are young children and need to be treated as such. They are more focused on there 'School of Excellence' title than the children themselves.

MCES is a wonderful school that offers many levels of academics in the upper grades to satisfy any childs learning capabilities. The teachers have always been very dedicated. Once the kids move on to the feeder middle school, they often stand out as high achievers. This school offers advanced classes in the 4th and 5th grades to those who score well on state testing, perform at consistantly high levels and need to be challenged. The Principal does a terrific job in keeping dicipline in check and keeps strict standards for behavior. I have been very pleased and feel that MCES prepares the kids for middle school and well beyond. The physical education teacher has been at the school for over 20 years and has a wonderful program for all ages and abilities. Music and art don't seem to get enough time due to the state budget. MCES offers academic clubs.

This school has gone through some changes in the last five years. The children have a restricted amount of time to socilize and they also have very decitated teachers. The children have to walk quietly in halls close to the rock wall. They have the Georgia Teacher of the Year in the Media Center, Mrs. Golden has made a wonderful addition to the school starting an in house morning tv station. The fifth grade students adution for positions of weather, sound, tech, and morning personalities. They change people every nine weeks witch gives the kids great experence. The Music and Art teachers move from middle and elementary every nine weeks, so they change what they are doing and do not get alot of time for exploration due to the budget from the state. Over all the school is good but there are some things that need changing.
