Mount Carmel High School is an excellent school for certain kids who enjoy the Catholic, all male environment where schools atmosphere is like no other. The diversity throughout the entire school is tremendous and the integrity and characteristics the school teaches the students is what makes them great. After former dean, Padre, was fired the strictness has deceased and that might make things at Carmel change. The new President needs to be reevaluated as well to see if he is what is best for that institution.

Mount Carmel has done tremendous things for me. Mount Carmel has surrounded me with people that do not look like me, come from different backgrounds, have had different experiences than me, but all strive to be successful in everything they do. Through my four years at Mount Carmel, I have been pushed to the limit academically. Here at Mount Carmel, we do not settle for the average standard, because the average standard is not what successful people settle for. Successful people want to be great, and that is what we preach and what we strive for. Mount Carmel exploits your weaknesses but emphasizes your strengths to help you turn your weaknesses into strengths. I came into Carmel with a lack of understanding of how much work I have to put into the classroom, but with trial and error, along with perseverance, have learned how to prepare and be successful. As the saying goes...

"You come to Carmel as a boy, if you care to struggle, and to work at it, you will leave as a man".
When going into a school that has only males as the student body, you are able to get a certain comfortabliltiy with them and the teachers that you can't when the opposite sex is present. It is a more relaxed environment since you aren't trying to impress girls or not be embarrassed.
However, the actually academics seem to be overshadowed by sports almost constantly. It seems as though some students are being passed because of what they can do on the field and not in the class. The school could improve on that by having an even harsher selective enrollment as to prepare men for careers instead of just a sport that they will most likely not be able to turn profession in.
