I met some of the most supportive teachers here! The Performing Arts department is excellent, as it taught me how to dance in my four years there! The Counseling department needs a lot of work. It only works on college, and they barely know students one-on-one. A lot of students struggling mentally at the school (including me)-and the counseling department needs to be more personalized for that! Otherwise amazing School (and amazing food) but counseling department should direct more energy on the wellbeing of students overall. Thank you Mercy!

Mercy high school is very strong in education. The school offers serious teachers that prepare you for college in terms of work load, essays, quizzes, and tests. The school takes pride in its trust in the responsibility for students to learn to use their free time productively by removing lunch hours from the schedule and instead offering designated days of no classes. Being an all girls school, Mercy offers empowerment to young women seeking leadership roles in their fields of interest. Mercy also offers a strong involvement in Catholicism to religious students interested in part taking.
The academics are great! Definitely helps students feel prepared for college/university. The teachers can be difficult at times, but you just need to keep communication with them. Overall, the teachers and administrators seem to look out for the students’ best interest. This school is incredibly high tech, and every student is required to have an iPad. It is useful and efficient for taking notes, doing tests, etc. The workload is definitely grueling and you will end up pulling many all-nighters. One other complaint would be about some of the students there. It is a private school, and many of the rich girls can be very snotty and cliques are big.
