Mt. Carmel believes students have succeeded when they have developed an array of choices for their path after graduation. Mt. Carmel's responsibility to the community is to provide the core experiences for students which build passion and conviction, as well as qualify and prepare students for success on their chosen path. Core experiences for students include:
 
  1. Contributions to, and participation in a safe and supportive school culture
  2. Excelling in rigorous courses
  3. Positively engaged in extra-curricular activities
  4. Proudly providing service to our community


Success in the core experiences requires a partnership between educators, students and families; the fulfillment of this mission is the Sundevil Way

Crafting the Student Experience

ALL STUDENTS LEARNING
We are committed to ensuring that each student reaches his or her potential to master the knowledge and develop the skills and attitudes essential for success in school and society. We are dedicated to involving parents in encouraging students to fulfill their responsibilities in the learning process.

CULTURE OF SHARED LEADERSHIP 
Staff, students, parents and the community have input regarding the goals, policies and implementation of the academic program.

CULTURE OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
Our expectations, communications, programs, celebrations and support create a culture of achievement. 

TEACHING AND LEARNING
We are implementing research-based teaching and learning strategies that actively engage students and make them aware of the process of learning.

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND DATA
Our outcomes are limited only by the ability of our adults to build, refine and utilize a repertoire of effective learning strategies and the analysis of data. Data informs our policy and practice which helps us see what is not always apparent.

SAFE, ORDERLY AND ATTRACTIVE ENVIRONMENT
We are committed to providing and maintaining a safe, orderly and attractive environment, which promotes productivity and stimulates learning for the students and staff of Mt. Carmel High School.
