Being a teacher for over 18 years in the public sector I wouldn't trust my wonderful triplets to just any private school. At Our Lady of Mount Carmel they are challanged (because one entered school reading), cared about by knowing each and every child by name and nature, and most of all they are molded in a well-rounded way to include academics, social, spiritual, and emotional growth. I feel great knowing that they are safe and are being disciplined to follow the way that Jesus tells us to. The teachers make contact with us daily via paper and the internet. Thank you.

We have been very happy at this school. I had two sons who graduated two years ago and a daughter who will graduate this year. Because of the size and the school philosophy, my children had opportunities to do things they wouldn't get to do at other schools. They played sports, did cheerleading and drill team, participated in Mass and assumed leadership positions. It is small but a wonderful supportive community. The faculty are some of the most creative and dedicated that I have come across.

This year has been difficult at our school, losing the Carmelites and the resignation of the principal who had been here only 2-3 months only. Today, we are in a better position to move forward. We have a committed and dedicated principal who has established her leadership and is guiding our teachers with great desire and energy. We have a new pastor who is supportive and works closely with our principal. The parish is now led by the Companions of the Cross, only the second parish in the US to be blessed by this Canadian order. I recommend this school. My daughter has been attending since PK-3, she is now in fourth grade. My sons, in PK-3 and 2nd grade, have also grown in this supportive and loving environment. Parents can communicate with the teachers and/or principal easily and are expected to be involved with their child's education.

My child has been attending this school and I am somewhat unhappy with the results. The teachers can't seem to control the class and they attempt to teach two subjects during one period.

Great school, small classes and lots of extra attention. When your children go to this school it is important to be involved in their education, and stay on top of what is changing at all times.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
