At Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School, student achievement is measured by evaluation of daily work, curriculum tests, regular quizzes, and standardized testing. Progress reports are sent home midway through each quarter and report cards are issued at the end of the quarter. Parent-teacher conferences are encouraged and can be scheduled with the teacher before or after school hours.
We are dedicated to helping each student reach their fullest potential. Our experience is that when students are challenged, they rise to the occasion. The Diocese of Phoenix uses a uniform grading system for all students.
