My son ad daugther attend Mount Carmel Academy and they are in the 2rd and 1rst grade. This is an outstanding school with a great principal and staff. The teachers are very supportive and professional. They are having a very productive year and the whole team do a great job. The atmosphere of the school is warm and friendly. The principal is always pleasant and professional. She always returns phone calls and meets with you in person whenever you have a concern. I love Mt Carmel and I believe it is one of the best schools in Springfield. They have not made our children feel stressed or pressured, but have allowed them to learn to their fullest abilities. We recommend this school completely, We couldn't be happier.

I sent my daughter to this school six years ago and it was a great school. She started in pre-k. Then when she was in 2nd grade there was a change of principals. I am very disappointed with what this principal did to this school. I feel it is more like a public school then a Catholic school. I feel the that the principal is trying to run this school like a public school. My daughter whom I had mentioned earlier is going to be attending Holy Cross this September and next year my son will follow. I would not sent my family or friends here in the future unless serious changes take place.

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.
