Our Lady of Mercy School Reviews
Our extracurricular opportunities were topnotch as well. We had OLMOTM, which stands for Our Lady of Mercy On The Move. It was a drama/theatre club for the students attending OLM. We held productions created by the students with the help of our teachers. Another extracurricular activity was Choir. Students who joined Choir would sing during Sunday Masses or Student-body masses held every first friday of every month. We also had book club, crochet club, NJHS, math club, science club, and MANY MORE. We also had great sports teams ranging from basketball to baseball. All our extracurricular activities allowed us to get involved with our school, which helped us do the same for high school and beyond. Being involved in something was taught as important.
The school administration is very friendly and helpful. They are understanding and are very welcoming. The faculty, staff, and principle was always part of the student-body's lives. They helped us grow and be the best we could be. They prepared us for high school so well that when we went into our freshmen year with sharp minds. The principal was always welcoming and worked hard to keep our facilities running. The guidance counselor was very understanding, helpful, and reliable. You could step into her office for anything. The office staff was always running as well. They worked hard to keep things align in school and they has a great system communicating with the teachers. The schools policies on bullying was topnotch. Our Lady of Mercy always had workshops on bullying, the teaching touching safety program, and many more. There was barely any bullying involved in our school, which gave a safe environment for all students. The dress code was not too bad either. I actually enjoyed wearing our uniform. It was comfortable and nice. There was nothing really to complain about our dress code. In terms of nail polish, makeup, and jewelry, students were not allowed to wear anything distracting oneself or other people. The rules at Our Lady of Mercy were simple yet effective. The entire school literally felt like a whole family in one three-story building. If I were to tell a parent who is about to send their child to a school from Pre-K to 8th Grade, I would tell them to go to Our Lady of Mercy Academy because it has many great educational departments and keeps our morals align for growth, which are both needed for our future. Unfortunately, Our Lady of Mercy closed down last year. The fact that it shut down, shut many of the alums hearts too. It was by far the BEST school for the BEST education for children. All the amazing memories shared in that building from generation to generation will last in our hearts for a lifetime.
This was by far the best school I've ever attended. If Our Lady of Mercy was an elementary school, a high school, and a college, I would MOST DEFINITELY have stayed. Here, I learned so much about myself and grew to be the little teen I was supposed to be. I was challenged academically, which in turn, helped me to do well in High School. I was morally aligned and I found my faith in God here. This school helped me to become humble and happy. It was a family of all ages. Even though our school closed down because our student-body started decreasing, our memories and school spirits will go on forever.
