Mercy was an amazing school for college preparation. Unfortunately, I only had a few teachers that I enjoyed learning from. They definitely push AP classes, and my college counselor was very helpful when it was time to make a decision. This school is fairly diverse, and almost everyone will find a friend group that they would fit in to. Overall, it was a great experience and I would have made the same decision if I could do high school over again.

My time at Mercy High School was definitely a continuous loop of ups and downs. Some things I liked about Mercy was that they offered many different advanced placement and honors courses. I'm glad I got to take quite a few of these challenging courses. Some things I didn't like about Mercy was the bathrooms because they were often incredibly dirty. Ever year my school was able to buy new, fancy technology, but they couldn't afford to fix up the bathrooms, which I thought was odd. Overall, my time at mercy was amazing, and I'm to have made some lifetime friends and to have had a good education.
Teachers are very dedicated to the success of students. If you are struggling and seek help they are more than happy to help you. They are also working on improving their athletics, which is appreciated. However a few people on the administrative staff are rude to students and parents, and overall unhelpful, so hopefully that will change.
