Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is a vibrant community of our parents, students, and staff communities. Parents are partners in education and demonstrate their commitment to the school by volunteering their time and participating in many school events throughout the year. Students are able to foster unique relationships across grade levels by being a part of a Pre-K through 8th grade school program with opportunities for leadership, mentorship, and friendship. An important part of our community are our highly qualified faculty and staff which includes 12 classroom teachers, instructional assistants in grades K-2, music teacher, physical education instructor, an art teacher, a resource coordinator, and specialist instructors for middle school elective classes.

Catholic values are woven into all that we do through prayer, religion class, attending mass, and serving the world around us. In this Christ-centered atmosphere, the unique qualities of each student are recognized, and children are taught to be active Christian leaders throughout their lives.
