Mt. Carmel had some good teachers but for the most part I recall many teachers being good people. Just that their classes were too easy most of what I learned in high school I already learned from middle school. Most of my learning took place outside the classroom or from talking to teachers who were willing to give me extra reading material. All in all though the other students tended to be pretty cool it was swing or miss pending on who you hung out with. MCA did bring me out of my shell and helped me build some good friendships. One thing I don't care for is how some people (alums faculty parents) carry the notion that this a Catholic school and while it is small and there is religious club. Those things do not make it a Catholic school if you are looking for a true Catholic school there are schools out there for that focus. In the way of improvement I think MCA needs to re-asses their academics in every field. Also they need to re-work their service hour requirement because that is a joke. I knew so many students who lied on their papers and made up hours.
