My child has been at Mount Carmel for more than two years. It is an excellent place for your child to receive a well rounded experience. In the short time we have been at Mount Carmel, we've seen tremendous growth in our child. In additon to the education, your child will be nurtured by a team of teachers and staff who truely love children and passionate about their jobs. The principal is committed to making sure the children receive a quality and challenging education. I have found her to be personally and professionally invested in the future of the kids and schools. She is available to parents and if you call, she will answer. I would personally recommend that you come to the school for a personal visit. There is no greater measure than when you see children happy and involved community of parents.

I have 3 children at Mount Carmel Christian School. My oldest son is currently in 3rd grade and has attended this school since pre-K. My twin boys are currently in 1st grade and also have attended since pre-K. I have had a child at this school for the last 4 years and I am very happy with the education they are receiving. The staff and principal are welcoming and professional. Anytime I've had an issue, the principal's door has been "open" and she listened. We worked to together to resolve any concerns (but they have been minor). The teachers are OUTSTANDING! They do not teach to any standardized test, but instead teach our children the material needed for a solid education. Even with full-time jobs, my husband and I volunteer a great deal at this school. A quality education must involve the parents, administration and teachers, actively working towards the same goal..educating my child(ren). Quality educators will produce quality learners and I believe I have that at MCCS!!! Very satisfied!

I have two children who attend Mt. Carmel Christian School. I have had nothing but great experiences with this school. The teachers are very approachable and work with you to make sure that issues are resolved. There is an active PTO that is very creative and comes up with great ideas for family nights, fundraising and resolving issues that come up from time to time. There are lots of afterschool activities that are offered at the school so you don't have to drive your child all over town to give them the experience of dance classes, chess club, robotics, tae kwon do, drama, etc. and the list goes on. Wonderful STEM program and classrooms with Smartboards. Weekly chapel, twice weekly Bible classes. Art, music and recess. I could go on and on.

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13:33-36 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 2 Corinthians 13:10-12 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:1-3

My child just completed their first year at Mount Carmel and I could not be more pleased. His teacher was very attentive and the ladies in the office are a blessing. He continues to be excited about about learning and loving God.

Look elsewhere - several years of experience with this school taught me a valuable lesson. I suspect that the person who wrote the Poor Student = Poor Parent review must be a teacher since they are so defensive and seem to have trouble with punctuation. Seriously, everyone that I know that left has found a better education and that includes leaving for a public school. This school and teachers are far from being is very sad. It used to be a good school but about 6 years ago it went downhill...mostly attibuted to the principal. This school concentrates almost solely on getting good grades on the ITBS. This means that things like writing suffer tremendously. The teachers/staff are very unprofessional, especially at the front office. If you want your child to be bullied by other kids and some teachers, then go to Mt. Carmel. Otherwise, go to a different Christian school or a public school where more programs to help/teach are available.

Poor Student = Poor Parent Poor Parent = Need to blame someone else Need to blame someone else = blame the teacher The school is fine; take a look at the students / parents who complain and leave. There are some parents who want to lay blame on others. Good luck to those schools who get those that have left Mt Carmel!!

The reviews containing 5 starts are written by school staff. Don't believe the hype!!! This school needs a lot of work. The 5th grade teacher is a KNOWN bully. I would go so far as to say that she's in need of treatment for some sort of mental illness. Children are not emotional safe around her.

As a parent of a child that used to attend this school I can honestly say this school has a lot of issues with teachers. Both of the Johnson teachers are of them bullies the kids and the other is simply inept. The feeling you get there is that the teachers and principal simply don't's all about them. My child was way behind in writing skills after leaving the school. Take my advice and look elsewhere for a Christian school....this one lacks Christian values.

Which Engineering classes are you refering to? I have a a 6th grade child in this school, and have never seen any Engineering program. Our son have attended Mount Carmel for 4 years. My husband and I are looking for a new school for our child because of our concerns of numerious acamedic concerns.

I have never regreted sending my children to Mount Carmel. They do well on the ITBS testing and they have really loved the engineering classes. I have graduated 1 child so far and have 2 more at the school. When 1st child graduated, they were ahead of most of the kids in their new school (9th grade Freshman). The teachers have always worked with my children to see the individual needs of each. My husband and I couldn't be happier with Mount Carmel.

Declining enrollment year after year says it all. Children rarely complete more than 75% of each textbook in classes. Those children that go on to public schools are actually BEHIND in their ability to write compositions....this problem has been going on for several years at Mount Carmel. Also, it is a stretch to consider this school Christian based on the value system of many of the teachers and principal.

My children have been at Mount Carmel for more than 5 years. The teachers show a true concern for each individual student. There is a high expectation within the classroom for the students in academics, behavior, and spiritual growth. I appreciate that my children are held accountable and taught to be independent. The principal is approachable if there are concerns. I often see him in the hall with parents and students. Overall I believe Mount Carmel's focus on the "whole child" makes it a great place for my children.

As a parent of a Mount Carmel Christian School graduate, I can personally testify to the quality of preparation for both high school and beyond from the staff there. Students are given personal, small group attention that they cannot receive in some of the larger schools/classrooms.

We have been at Mount Carmel fro two years now and have been really pleased with the quality of the education my son has received, the wonderful facilities, the love and attention the teachers have shown, and the extracurricular activites that are offered. I wish it were closer to where we live, but the drive has been worth it. My son is involved in the gifted program (VOYAGE) and has thoroughly enjoyd it. I'd recommend this school to anyone.
