OLMC is very close minded from the teachers, administrators, parents, and kids. The bullying at this school is so extreme that I would not suggest anyone send their kids there. There education is good but their special education is lacking.


Posted June 8, 2012

To the parent who had a bad recommendation for OLMC-I cannot believe you were at the same school. The principal, teachers, administration, parents, and students are all very pleasant and wonderful. The students have gotten great comments regarding conduct from many coaaches and teachers. We love OLMC!

Overall, OLMC is a great school. Both the quality of their education and related activities are very high. My only, but significant, disappointment is the fact that they offer neither transportation (not a big deal) or after-school care (a very big deal). It is because of the latter that I am preparing to transfer my daughter to a public school offering after-school care.

I love my school. The Parish Bash is the only event teachers want to go to here. I cannot wait to see my students after summer break. Just remember to raise your hand in class or you will get an after school detention and 3 lunch detentions. Can't wait for school see you soon! :)

I thought they were very rude, arrogant and snobby. Very unwelcoming. I would not recommend.

Our family had the pleasure of attending Our Lady of Mount Carmel School. Our children all left academically prepared for their future. The greatest gift of all had to be the gift they received in their religious education. Each of our children graduated with high morals and values and we couldn't be more pleased. The staff cares about the children and the principal is a gem. The Parents are so involved and are welcomed into the school environment. Truley Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is a gift from God.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
