Above all the school is kind, great academics, children love their school and the community. The parents are superb. If you want your children to feel safe and loved this is the school. The school is small but that is a plus because everyone gets to know each other and you quickly become part of a family.
I have had children at this school for 13 years and have seen many changes. (My sixth child is now in 3rd grade) You cannot find a more caring supportive group of teachers. They truly want all their children to thrive. I am blessed with very bright children and have been amazed at the ways the teachers have been able to challenge them individually. In addition there are many "extras" that are offered to the children. Over the years my children have participated in chess, writers circle, band, choir, robotics, art appreciation, newspaper, yearbook and drama. One final note, one of my daughters was extremely shy and HATED speaking in front of the class, by the time she graduated in 8th grade she had held two major roles in the school musical and has continued drama in high school. I truly believe she would not have made such a dramatic transformation anywhere else.
Mercy is a great school and has been a perfect fit for both of my children - each of whom has different academic needs. Love the individual groups and individual attention each child receives. Staff, faculty, and parents extremely welcoming and friendly.
