This is a great school. Teachers, Parents and Staff all work together to provide a fantastic learning environment. The school is on the leading edge of technology ( smartboards, wifi, internet filtering, video conferencing) OLMC has a strong Parents Guild which provides support to the school in many areas. Teachers incorporate technology and traditional learning to provide a well balanced learning experience. I recommend this school to anyone who wants the best education for their children.

Our Lady Of Mount Carmel School in Elmsford is a top-quality school with a surpurb education. The teachers go the extra mile for the children. They are challenged academically and suported by the entire staff. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a Catholic-based education,wonderful, supportive teachers with a lower tuition in comparison to other schools.

OLMC (Elmsford) is a great grammar school. The Principal has been there for years and she is one of the most caring individuals I know. The Parents are greatly involved and the students go on to excell in High School.

I highly recommend Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (Elmsford, NY). A Catholic, family oriented, community-based school which is substantial to a child's over-all well being. A high standard school with excellent, caring teachers.

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.
