The best part of my experience at Mercy High School has been spent with the admissions team and helping out with admissions and the students looking at the school. The worst part of my experience at Mercy is that sometimes the organization of the school in general is not the best. I would like to see change in the organization skills of the administration, the teachers, and the school overall.
I have had a very pleasurable time at Mercy. The academics have helped prepare me for my future and I believe I have many skills that will help me be successful.
My teachers really help me through my school work! Mercy is hard and I got so much homework freshman year, but I feel like I'm learning a lot and am really preparing for college. Also my friends are amazing!!!! I love mercy
My experience at mercy has been good and bad. I’ve made many friends that I love dearly and have been able to create genuine friendships with. On the bad side, I feel like some of the teachers do not really pay attention to the students and do what’s best for them and not for their students. With all that being said mercy has helped me grow and be a better student.
I really enjoy attending Mercy High School. Everyone is extremely welcoming and truly want to see you thrive academically and socially. I have grown immensely throughout my past 3 years at Mercy. As I approach my final year in high school, I can look back and see how Mercy has shaped me into the person I am today.
Mercy high school will take you on quite a journey but I have made life-long, friends, and experiences I would never regret. Somethings like in every high school are questionable but overall it’s been quite the ride.
I have really enjoyed my last 4 years at Mercy High School. I received a high-quality education and developed genuine friendships grown from the sisterhood I share with my fellow classmates. Mercy provides a top-notch curriculum, and a host of extracurricular activities ranging from fun clubs like arts and crafts, to more serious organizations, such as the Black Student Union in which I am currently President. Being a senior is somewhat bittersweet. I am excited to graduate and embark on the next challenge of my life, but I am saddened that my time at Mercy High School is coming to an end.
I like how Mercy High School is committed to service and justice, and that student life consists of many clubs and organizations, fun traditions, and academic opportunities.
One of the most bigoted schools I’ve ever been in. Most of the students are white, privileged and incredibly hateful to any minority groups. Like saying slurs at students, harassing gay students, and threatening to beat up black students on campus and have no repercussions. Drugs and social media bullying are also a pretty big problem here. Administration will do pretty much nothing to support students who’s parents don’t majorly fund and will most likely sweep instances under the rug. Sports are the main focus here and they don’t really fund academics or the arts. Coaches helps put girls through mercy (even though that’s not allowed with any academic scholarship). Teachers are unqualified and inappropriate at best. They don’t do very much background checks into staff. And if there is a problem with a teacher, don’t take action until very far after. I would recommend sending your daughters to other schools.
I loved the environment at Mercy. The students and faculty are really sweet and make the school welcoming.
Mercy High School pushes you to be your best. The coursework is a big load, and it might seem annoying, but it is not a waste of time. The seminars, from Freshman year to Senior year are always helping you with college. The IB program really pushed me to try hard and be my best.
Going to Mercy has given me so many valuable opportunities. I was able to become a leader and be involved in many different clubs. I have had an overall positive experience with teachers and they are always there to support students in many ways, not just academically. My college counselors and seminar classes have prepared me more than adequately for college. I have made life long friendships here and the overall energetic environment that I walk into everyday changed my mindset for the better.
Mercy High School is a school that enhances women's skills in the real world. During my time at Mercy, I have learned to speak publicly, time management, and how to organize. Through mercy, I have been able to become an independent woman who is ready for tasks and challenges the world has to throw at me.
What I enjoy about Mercy is the community setting. Community was a very important factor when I considered high schools and Mercy was able to provide. Mercy was able to provide me sufficient resources for SAT prep, mental health and college prep. They made me feel college ready and supported me in the college process.
Overall alright, I made a bunch of friends there, and I was able to maintain an A-B grade. However, in my senior year, we had a Language and Literature teacher for the first 2 months who I’m pretty sure didn’t even have an English degree… overall not horrible.
Mercy High School did an excellent job at preparing me for college. They taught me how to develop my leadership, professional and academic goals. This is a greatly involved service and community oriented campus.
I am a senior at mercy and I’ve spent all four of my years here. It has been a really great experience despite the lockdown. I am grateful for the family and connections I made through attending this school and believe I have made a mark on the school and will succeed in my future endeavors because if this school.
