Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School Reviews

I've definitely learned a lot at OLM and I appreciate all the growing I've been able to do. There is a lot of great support; however, there is just as much difficulty. The enviroment is one filled with negativity. There isn't a lot of unity in the student body- something Catholic schools typically work hard to accomplish. There is an incredible amount of pressure put on students. It feels like everyone is stressed out all the time. We hardly eat lunch; when we do, we do homework at the same time. Your students will be academically challenged, prepared for college, and ready for all the blows the world will throw at them- but at the cost of their health. Of course, this is very similar in all schools and there is no way to control the attitudes of students. The academics, diversity, and the good teachers are a highlight at OLM and should not be forgotten!

Though a Catholic school, this school failed to create a sense of community among the student body, parents, and faculty during my 4 years. It lacked substantial extracurricular activities and study spaces, so a large number of students were left to sit outside after 4, which is a detriment to the student's academic and personal development that the school claims to nurture. The principal and teachers failed to see the rampant bullying and fights occurring during class period transitions, yet somehow could catch every girl with a shorts more than 2 inches above their knees during this time. Classes not challenging enough for gifted students, and critical/open-minded thinking not promoted. Not worth the money as my friends in public school seemed to receive higher-quality education. Principal used to hover in classes too often, which made teachers visibly nervous and hindered my education. I became very depressed at this school, but luckily got better soon after graduating.
Our Lady of Mercy is a great college preparatory high school. Counselors motivate students to take control in the college selection process. Teachers know how to present their subjects to students so that we do well in their classes. They are also very available to the student body and earn respect from the students. Mercy's student body is comprised of many ethnic backgrounds, which is celebrated. Parents are also very involved, even if the event they contribute to does not involve their own children. However, our facilities need to be clean at all times. The healthy food is expensive, and club life is limited on campus.
