Mercy Vocational High School Reviews

I really enjoyed the shops that Mercy has. What change I would like to see is the staffs active involvement. While my academic experience was very smooth, my experience with my classmates was horrible. They misbehaved and joked about racism. No staffs would bother to correct them. I brought it up to the administration and they even promised me they would handle it. Nothing happened.

I am currently a senior at Mercy Vocational High School. Throughout my four years at this school I must say that my experience was fun and life changing. Since my school is small you get the chance to talk to those you barely notice when you walk down the hallway. But since Mercy Vocational has a lot of diversity, I got to learn some new languages and got to make new friends who come from different country than me. My school has so many activities that students can become involved in like sports or being apart of a bake sale or becoming a student ambassador. One of the best things about my school is that we have career shops. Such as Cosmetology, Business, Building Trades, Nursing, and etc. My school prepares you for the work force but also for what to expect when we go to college. They give young students a chance to make a difference and try new experiences and that is why I love my school Mercy Vocational High School.
I like Mercy because of their shops and their curriculum. My passion is Pastry Arts and their Culinary program is preparing me for my next destination which is The Restaurant School. The skills I'm learning will set me apart from others because my teacher has years of experience and she makes sure each student is comfortable with the material before moving on to something else.
