14 Parent Reviews for Mount Carmel High School

Mt Carmel is designed for boys who love to play sports. There are 3 sports seasons and 3 academic trimesters. Sports are extremely competitive so don't be surprised if your son doesn't make the basketball, football or baseball team. The curricular options are solid with a good mix of AP classes. ...  Read more

Mount Carmel truly is an AMAZING! We live in Pullman area in Chicago and my son travels an hour just to attend Mount Carmel each day. When we started looking for schools for our four kids, we realized that there weren't that many good CPS schools in our area. Knowing that our kids had to get a good education, ...  Read more

I am currently a junior at the school and I enjoy it. I wouldn't consider myself an athlete. I am in the honors/AP curriculum and it is challenging. The only problem I have with this school is they should try to expand their science department, especially with the new seven period day. Also, they should ...  Read more

Mount Carmel HS offers a superior scholastic experience, dedicated to the development of young men in a safe, challenging and requiring environment.

Mount Carmel was an excellent time (Academically, Spiritually as well as Athletically) . Can't wait to send my son there.

I feel for the fee that is charged monthly, I believe that the acadamics of the school lag behind the preimere magnet schools located in Chicago. If you want your child to be a football star this is the place to be but if you want your child to be prepared for a college experience than I do not feel ...  Read more

I am currently a Freshman at Mt. Carmel, and I think that it is great. I run cross country, and am trying out for the baseball team. I will admit that I am not one of the best athletes on the team. I think that the person that said that if you are a great athlete the teachers will treat you great, is ...  Read more

If your son plays football or is some other kind of athletic star, he'll enjoy the treatment. But if not....two of my son's junior teachers did not know his name in October. There are some good teachers and some who simply do not teach. My son feels valued for who he is at his new school.

I wish to briefly express how it is more than simply a school/place that a student attends . . . Go there !? As a mt. Carmel alum it is important to touch on this concept of: 'go there'. Mt. Carmel is not a school (or place) to '. . .Go there', or to have 'went to'! but, it is a choice that becomes ...  Read more
