Mercy High School Reviews

I was a public school kid K-8. Around the end of my 8th grade year I decided I should try to get into Mercy High School. I believed it would be a better place for me to spend my four years in high school. I am unbelievably happy I chose to make that decision because going to Mercy is probably the best decision I have made. Mercy is an amazing school with a diverse group of students coming from all over metro-detroit, my class had girls from the Bahamas! The teachers are so amazing and are really there to make sure you understand material. The schools cafeteria food is delicious I miss it everyday. But the thing I miss the most, is going to school everyday and being welcomed by so many girls of all different races and cultures.Girls travel to go to this college preparatory school because it is a great school, with phenomenal teachers, and an amazing atmosphere. If I could go back to high school over, I would 100% choose to go to mercy again and be back with all my sisters.

Mercy High School is a stellar, Catholic, college preparatory school for young women. The teachers and administrative staff are highly qualified professionals. My daughter is beyond prepared for the rigors of college academics because of her experience at Mercy. There is no comparison to the diverse, faith driven, academically challenging environment that Mercy provides. Years of tradition and sisterhood are at the forefront of all that Mercy exemplifies. I would highly recommend Mercy High School for your daughter!
Using the star scale for the 13 categories, I rate Mercy 56 out of 65 possible stars. That is an 86%, which on a 4.0 scale that Mercy uses is a B. That sounds about right. I wonder what grade the Mercy administration and teaching staff would give themselves? I doubt it would be that low. The major issues that standout to me are the facilities and a few teachers. Obviously the building is old and lacking many modern amenities, plus the campus could benefit from some better strategic planning. I also believe that there are some teachers stuck in the past and not instructing at the level that the administration expects. I am extremely pleased with the administrations' effort of limiting parent involvement until after the student exhausts her effort of communication up through the teacher to the administration. However I believe this stifles some discussions and I do not think the administration is receiving adequate feedback about the teachers from the students or parents.
