    "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. However the teaching quality is low. There are some outstanding teachers but the sad truth is that most teachers are hired for their ability to coach a sport first and teach second. If you have a son that thrives on playing sport and needs to play competitive sports to wake up and go to school everyday then Mt. Carmel is the perfect school. If you have a son who has varied interests and may want to get involved in more academic pursuits such as robotics,math club etc. look elsewhere."

    "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, in order to compete in this world. We turned to Catholic schools. Sure, it was a major financial investment to send four kids to catholic schools but we could not sacrifice our kids education nor livelihood. We chose St. Columbanus School on the south side because it provided a solid academic program. Our oldest son graduated from St. C in the 95% percentile. He was accepted to Jones & Mount Carmel. We chose Mt. Carmel so that he could continue a faith based, academically sound school. He is enrolled in all honor classes at Mt. Carmel & have met kids from all over Illinois. He participate in sports and community service. I know that Mt.Carmel is helping to shape him into a responsible, well educated young man. I have no regrets when we chose Mt. Carmel. We have another son and he will attend Mount Carmel also. Catholic schools are worth every penny."

    "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 look into starting more clubs."

    "Mount Carmel HS offers a superior scholastic experience, dedicated to the development of young men in a safe, challenging and requiring environment. My Grandfather liked the biblical phrase, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another". Mount Carmel HS provides the 'iron' necessary to sharpen the 'iron' that is the 'young men of Mount Carmel HS', and these are the 'young men' who wish to one day graduate as 'Men of Carmel'. The discipline and dedication required to attend Mount Carmel High School is not for everyone, but for those who stay the course and graduate, I believe most will be made better by the experience."

    "I am a parent of a current student and believe this school is wonderful. The academics are challenging, sports are amazing, diversity is excellent! It's truly a place where you see your son come in as a boy and leave as a man. I have seen great improvements in my son since his freshman year. As a parent who believes it takes a village to raise a child MC is definitley the place you would want to send your son. I know most of the reviews tried to focus on athletics, however this is coming from a parent whose son is a brain not an athlete!"
