Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women Reviews

Mercy has been an experience that has shown me education goes beyond the walls of a building. As an all girls, Catholic school, I have learned to feel confident in so many aspects of my education. Public speaking, performance in the gymnasium or auditorium, conversations with administration and volunteering with those less fortunate exceed the textbook education I could have received elsewhere for a lot less money! With amazing, accredited public schools around me, choosing Our Lady of Mercy allowed me the religious principals and traditions to engage in while pursuing my academics and flourish. I am looking forward to continuing my academics in college to find my path and career moving forward in the future.

Our Lady Of Mercy is a great school with a huge focus on academics, drama, and sports. The teachers are all, for the most part, very welcoming and genuinely care for the students and their successes in their futures. Sports are also a major part of the school's image, especially soccer, due to the fact that the famous soccer player, Abby Wambach, attended our school and has made an everlasting impact on the sports program with sizable donations to the program. Mercy prepares all students for college with a rigorous learning schedule and the ability to push students to work their hardest and never settle for mediocrity. It does, however, lack in diversity due to the steep tuition costs and added expenses with attending the school and I would like to see that change in the future.
The teachers at Mercy truly care about students both in and out of the classroom and the academics there are phenomenal. Students are pushed to their highest potential and are given the resources they need in order to be fully prepared for collage. The workload is admittedly, very heavy, but is manageable and teachers are always available before, during, and after school for help. The all girls environment is unique and helps us reach our full potential as young women, as does the Catholic environment which is the very fabric of our school. Overall, Our Lady of Mercy is a wonderful place to be.
