We help our students build foundations for purposeful lives. We work each day to build a community of faith, hope, and love so that each student can learn and grow to be the person God is calling him or her to be. Our rigorous curriculum instills a love of learning in our students, skillfully preparing them to move on to any high school they choose with self-confidence and poise. Our exceptional faculty inspire students to become passionate, well-rounded, and highly-principled individuals who know they are loved and have a purpose to serve in our world. Students learn not only in the classroom, but through important experiences that Mercy is able to provide. From our Buddy program that pairs middle schoolers with our youngest students, encouraging responsibility and creating role models, to the Helping Hands of Mercy group that cultivates a life-long commitment to service and social awareness, our students learn the foundations of leadership and personal responsibility. In addition, we have invested in technology enhancements throughout the school so that all our students have access to tablet devices and interactive whiteboards, which allows our teachers to take content a step further and bring innovation to our already-strong curriculum.

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
Awful school and terrible teachers .... Second grade teacher, Karlie Stewart, is a complete nightmare who managed to push two families out in the middle of the year, and despite being a part of the Mercy community for over 4 years, we have decided to leave due to the terrible experience we dealt with here. Very disappointed at how horrible this school has become!
This is our third year at OLM (Pre-K, K and 1) and we remain very pleased with the school. We toured several schools in the area and easily chose OLM. We find the school to be a very warm and unpretentious place, while also holding students to a high level of academic rigor and behavioral expectation. The Christian education is also very important to us. While the academics are strong, teaching the students how to be followers of Christ is equally important. Our family is Protestant (Episcopalian) and we feel very much part of the school fiber. Sr. Geri, along with every teacher and staff member we have encountered have been welcoming and gracious. I feel that any of them would do whatever it takes to ensure the children's safety and well being.
They need a new principal and secretary again! If the secretary and principal aren't "losing" money, they are making ridiculous decisions that put the children in danger - terrible school. Well priced though!!
This school has gone down hill fast! They lose monies turned in and do not make amends, their lunch offering is ridiculous (and God help you if you complain), the middle school has a nightmare of a teacher that is allowed to threaten children and parents (one set of parents is now pursuing legal action against the school), finances are a mess, and the principal is only good for brushing things aside and berating parents if they complain. The school has lost many many families due to their ineptitude. If you love you children do NOT send them to this school!!
