    Mercy High School is very welcoming. It isn't your typical high school where the seniors bully the freshman, every grade wants to support the others. The academics are challenging and rigorous, but its all worth it when college decisions come around!

    My daughter is a freshman and absolutely loves the school. She's very active in sports and clubs and has enjoyed interacting with the upperclassmen. They are very welcoming and helpful. Staff and teachers are top notch and always on top of things. They keep you informed as a parent. Truly a great experience so far. Thank you to Sister Mary and all the wonderful staff!
    My daughter graduated from Mercy. Mercy not only prepared her for College, but for work beyond graduation. Wonderful education and environment. Helpful and caring faculty and staff. Well worth the investment!
