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!

Mercy High school is a great, Catholic, all-girls college preparatory high school. I loved that there are so many traditions, like Walk-a-thon and Cake Auction. You get a real sense of community there. Some things I would change about the school would be less strict on the little things--like exactly how our uniforms should fit us, and where we can sit after school. But besides this, Mercy is a great place to go to become a more confident, independent young women in today's society.
Mercy isn't just the typical daycare that it's known for. When we aren't having fun assemblies or prayer services, students are buckled down learning and taking tests and quizzes daily. I love Mercy and the community. My only complaint is that I am always swamped with 4-5 tests/quizzes in one day, sometimes multiple times a week. Most of the teachers are well versed in what they teach and are great explainers, but sometimes it's hard to comprehend material when a teacher isn't doing a great job teaching.
