    My children have been attending Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Boonton since 2008. I love the small classroom sizes you find at OLMC it allows for a ton of extra attention and the teachers are able to really get to know each student and the students really get to know one another. I feel very strongly this environment has helped my children succeed. The middle school at OLMC starts in 5th grade and it's awesome! The teachers spend tons of time and energy on each of the kids they are so supportive and truly want to see each one of the kids succeed. The specials at OLMC like art music gym religion and life skills are taught in two grade groups so there is plenty of time each day when the students are in a larger classroom setting. Kindergarden to second grade teachers do a great job of getting the students reading and ready with math skills laying a strong foundation for the next 8 years. Besides the excellent academic education my children receive they are really learning how to be good kind people-to really think about how you treat others and yourself. If you are looking for small classroom sizes an intimate family like environment that is nurturing and solid OLMC is for you!

    I am so happy with my experience these past 5 years at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School (OLMC) in Boonton NJ. My biggest concern when it was time for my son to start preschool was finding a place that would not only educate him but help him to grow emotionally and spiritually in a safe and caring environment. OLMC has totally exceeded my expectations. My son has thrived in this environment. The teachers are dedicated innovative and caring. Character building is a huge part of the culture of the school. The students do very well on standardized testing and the teachers do not spend the entire year teaching to the test! The learning environment is dynamic and creative and the class size allows for a tremendous amount of individual attention. Students are encouraged and supported as they step out of their comfort zones to do presentations perform and lead masses at OLMC Church. Additionally there is so much interaction between grades sometimes peer collaboration other times older kids buddy up with the younger students. I start each school year filled with anticipation of all the good things to come and I ve never been disappointed.

They are not only advancing academically but learning how to be good and responsible people. I love the small classroom sizes of grades 1 through 8 it guarantees that my children a priceless amount of attention during their studies. You would be surprised at the qualifications of many of the teachers at OLMC. A small school with a dedicated staff many extra curricular opportunities and a truly loving learning environment.

    We love love love this school. We are a military family and it is important for our kids to not only attend a school that has a challenging academic program; but to attend one where the kids are welcomed and not treated as outsiders. OLMC has excellent teachers who truly care about their students' success many opportunities for parents to volunteer small class size extra-curricular activities (drama gymnastics yearbook bowling student council aftercare program etc.) and a strong religious education. OLMC is like a family and we LOVE it.

    My children have been attending OLMC school for the last 11 years. Our faculty is extremely dedicated to the academic and spiritual development of our students. Music art and Spanish are offered as our Humanities courses with instrumental band offered as an optional class. We have many extra-curricular offerings including Student Council Yearbook Peer Mediation Bowling and gymnastics. Parents are welcomed to volunteer in many areas. My children have truly thrived and benefited from their experiences at OLMC. There is almost a family atmosphere at the school that cannot be matched anywhere else.

    From the moment our children entered OLMC School we knew that we found the right place for them. They have grown spiritually in their Catholic faith emotionally academically and socially far beyond our expectations. The OLMC staff and families make our school a wonderful and safe learning environment. Our children treasure OLMC school as a very happy place and we cherish the time that we can be involved as volunteers there. We love having such open lines of communication and mutual understanding with the staff. We are very fortunate to have such an excellent school nearby serving students from preschool through eighth grade with children from many faiths and towns. Our children have made such wonderful friends at OLMC and they will be able to grow through their years at OLMC School.

    Our family loves OLMC School because it is a wonderful learning environment centered on the family and community through teamwork and caring. By combining lessons in moral values with education and involving the entire family our children learn to be good citizens as well as loving members of an extended Christian family. Our children have teachers who keep them intrigued so they re eager to learn and enthusiastically return to school each day. Most importantly our children both very young already have a knowledge of God (not an easy concept to teach to youngsters) since His Word is integrated throughout the school day. As members of the parish and school our children are receiving the most well-rounded comprehensive education possible. A Catholic education in 2007 offers much more than before including music art drama sports and special interest groups like chess. We love OLMC!
