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.
