Mount Carmel High School Reviews

Mount Carmel is a school for athletes who want to attend a school known for athletic prowess. Each teacher is a sports coach and on a number of occasions (for example, parent/teacher night when 1/2 the teachers were absent due to sports commitments), it appears that the focus is on sports, not on academics.

Mt. Carmel's culture focuses on discipline through escalating punishments, detentions, fines, weekend detention. There is a Marine like approach to infractions, as opposed to teaching boys how to manage their emotions and interpersonal conflicts collaboratively.

A kid who is not aggressive, athletic and oriented towards old fashioned Catholicism will not thrive at Mt. Carmel.

I love that I've found lifelong friends at Mount Carmel. I transferred out of my previous high school after only one year there, and I was welcomed into the new school with open arms. I like how everyone had a place to connect and grow with all kinds of people. Students come from over 100 zip codes to attend Mount Carmel, so the network of peers I've come to know across Chicagoland has been extensive, and the connections run deep. I hope to find another place like my high school so that I might encounter the same level of community, friendship, education, and love.
My overall experience was the greatest choice that I made for my education path. It gave me the place where I could meet so many different students from over a hundred different zipcodes to attend class with. These students were on my sports teams that soon become my brothers, that even to this day I call upon them even in college.
