Having had three children attend OLMC School and having experienced many other schools due to our military life, I can happily and easily say that OLMC School is by far the very best experience my children and our family has had. OLMC is more than just a school, it is a family and a faith community in which each of us was able to thrive!

Of all the schools my children have attended as we moved during a military career, OLMC School is without hesitation the very best of them all!

Best school around! My children are learning so much and love going to school each day. They are happy, and their teachers really do care. They are growing up to be incredibly bright, loving, respectful children, and I owe much of it to Our Lady of Mount Carmel School! Highly recommend!
