Mercyhurst Preparatory School Reviews
Review Mercyhurst Preparatory School
I took challenging courses and had alot of choices.. arts, sciences, music, theatre, math, computer, design, history, english, peer leadership, world religions and ethics! A lot of clubs and varsity sports and classes at local universities with a lot of community and charity work.. pushed me to constantly challenge myself with lots of school spirit and pride..
I love this school for many reasons. Firstly, the academics are great, and I know this is a cliche, but teachers truly want you to succeed. Mercyhurst Prep offers classes in the IB program, but Honors and College-Prep classes are also available. Another thing I love about Mercyhurst is the fact that there is something for everyone, and you don't have to choose. We have a great theatre department, but we also have awesome athletic programs, art programs, music programs, you name it! I truly believe that the administration gives their 100% and cares about the outcome of every student.
I found Mercyhurst a compelling academic experience, with teachers ready to help their students. The greatest disappointment was the social aspect of it- I was constantly rejected by most of the student and for the most of the year felt extremely lonely. I also found them alienating, as they were not acting according to the school's mission statement and were bullying me because of my special interest that felt foreign to them and so they abused the greatest stereotype related to that special interest. From the social standpoint I would only recommend MPS to the ones who waste their entire days on the Snapchat or whatever thing they are using on the phones they are always staring at. I felt sad most of the year and was very depressed and I failed to appreciate any other activities it had to offer. International students felt alienating and divided by national groups, I was the only person who came from my country was on my own the whole time.
