We're a military family, so we've had many experiences w/a variety of schools. My three children (Pre-K through 5) attended St. Nicholas for the last three years & love it. The teachers, principal, staff and other families are wonderful. We are very happy we chose to send our children here.

I am not a parent but i am a student and this school lets me know that you can learn and have fun at the same time. There is a lot of people and the teachers give you help when you ask for it. Our Principle, Mrs. Nord Has a lot of experience and our art teacher Mr.T (Thuita) is a real artist! Please let your child go here! Sincerely, Kourtney Pardue

Our Lady Of Mount Carmel is an outstanding school. Our children have been attending school at OLMC since the fall of 2002. We previously had been at another Private School in the same area and there is no comparison of the rate of education our children are getting at OLMC. The Priest at our Parish is very much involved in the activities of this school and all parishioners (of all ages). They are very considerate of each families needs. Every student is treated the same and we have the 'no tolerance rule' that we believe should be implemented in every school system. All parents take an active role in success of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Our PTO is one of the best organizations that I have ever been involved in, the President serves a -2- year term. I believe that gives her/him a great sense of involvement that contributes to the success of the Organization. The parents of the children that attend OLMC make up committees on just about every extra-cirricular activity that goes on at the school or as a parish. Everyone from the School office to the Parish office does an excellent job maintaining a wonderful atmosphere at OLMC. I could go on and on about the wonderful attributes of OLMC. Anyone who might be considering enrolling your child into a school that is within the Archdioces of Louisville, I encourage you to take a look at OLMC. The only regret you will have is, why did I wait so long. Don't be afraid to change, your children's life is in your hands. As a parent that comptemplated for years to make a change, I know that my children are finally getting what they derserve in an education.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
