Absolutely amazing School! The communication between teacher staff and parents is by far the best I've ever seen. Their willingness and persistence to help my daughter improve is amazing, they truly care about my daughter's education and her future! My daughter is proud to be a lifelong Mercy girl!

Mount Mercy is a place to grow and flourish as a young girl. The teaching staff is incredible, especially in our history/global studies department. Teachers have fantastic methods and are focused on one thing: preparing you. The atmosphere is calm and supportive, with friends around every corner you're never alone. This school does nothing but prepare and support you on your future. Advice is always given whether from the teachers or the seniors. Girls are very friendly and there is a strong bond between the students. As a student I feel more then comfortable talking to my counselors and teachers wo offer a friendly and helpful approach.
I love it! There are so many great clubs and activities to be a part of. They also offer various Advanced Placement (AP) classes as well as dual credit classes, which can be a more affordable way to take Gen Ed courses for college. There are a couple of not so good things about Mount Mercy, but they don't outweigh the benefits of going there at all!
