Mercy High School, Baltimore Reviews

Mercy provides rigorous, challenging academics with the personal attention needed to help all students achieve success. The Women in Medicine program provides my daughter with experiences she would not have on other high schools. The McAuley Honors program and the newly introduced IB program are also strong features of the school program. Additionally, our family loves the four-year advisor program, as we feel our daughter's advisor truly knows all facets of her personality and can provide her advice and support as necessary. The Alumnae commitment to the school is fantastic, with strong female role models routinely coming back to the school to provide mentoring, serve as guest speakers, etc. We could not ask for a better school than Mercy for our daughter!

Mercy High School is not only an educational institution but a community and a family. My experience at Mercy has been an exceptional essence of growth, compassion, leadership, loyalty, and love. The outstanding, compassionate faculty and staff have provided me with the tools necessary to succeed in college and in life. I have been so lucky to try numerous activities, take enriching classes, and discover who I am. I have developed relationships with faculty, staff, and students that will forever leave an impact on me. The relationships and experiences that I have made at Mercy have forever impacted me, leaving me with the fondest of memories and the strength to use those memories as motivation and success in my future. Mercy has helped me grow into the woman that I am today and will be. With my Mercy ring, I am connected with the thousands of Mercy sisters from the past and my Mercy sisters. I am so blessed to have been able to attend Mercy for the past 4 years; it is my forever home.
Mercy has been a wonderful place for our daughter to learn and grow. She is challenged in her classes, on the athletic field, and in extracurricular activities. The sisterhood between the Mercy Girls is unrivaled in our area. The traditions of the school truly help to support this bond of sisterhood.The faculty and administration all have the best interest of the girls at heart.Parent involvement is encouraged. We are impressed by the Women in Medicine program which our daughter participates in. This program has helped her discern a career path and given her real-life experience working with and being mentored by doctors and nurses at Mercy Medical Center. We do not feel our daughter would have been able to have access to opportunities that she has experienced in this program at any other school. From the athletic fields to the newly renovated classrooms to the garden, Mercy is an inviting space for all.
