Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School Reviews

Gwynedd Mercy Academy has given me the best high school experience I could have asked for. Gwynedd Mercy offers a rigorous academic program as well as allows the sense of community to overpower each individual. Our school recognizes the athletes, musicians, artists, scholars, and so many more talented people. Fortunately, I am able to exceed in many different categories showing my well-rounded personality and demonstrating my ability to go beyond just one particular quality. I think this is what makes the Gwynedd community unique. At Gwynedd Mercy, each girl is given the chance to learn and develop strengths in many different aspects of life.

Gwynedd Mercy's mission to "serve others" is simply fake. They pretend like service is at their core when in reality it is all for image. The administration, Sr. Pat, the board of trustees are greedy and money hungry. When a student among their own community is struggling financially, they kick them to the curb, embarrass them in front of their peers, and are outright rude to the family of the student struggling to afford tuition. They are always asking for money to help the Gwynedd community. Yet where is this help? I met a bunch of great girls at gwynedd, I received an above average education, yet when I think of Gwynedd I only have distaste and disgust for the way the administration treated my family with outright disrespect and severe lack of compassion. DO NOT trust anyone with authority at this school. The second you lose some of your financial prestige, you mean NOTHING to the Gwynedd community. I will forever hold regret in my heart for attending.
Great school! Taught grammar for the first time in my 10th grade english class by a wonderful nun (previously came from public school where basic grammar is nonexistent). Wonderful school for English, social studies, math, and languages. Good departments in science, but not as strong as the others.
