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.
Recent proof shows OLM church has been stealing money from the school's athletic fund for the church's own use. Which has led to numerous "accidents" in the schools's gym. Sad Sad Sad is the current state of this school!
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!!
Our children were formerly at one of the most expensive private school's in town and we quickly realized that they needed a higher quality of academics and a more structured and nurturing environment. We transferred them to OLM and have been absolutely thrilled with the results. OLM is the best kept secret in town! The teachers are amazing and the education they receive is outstanding. Beyond the academics, the school emphasizes the importance of having a social conscience and being kind and loving people. OLM is truly the best school in the Triad. It is not surprising that they were recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. I could not ask for a better school for my children.
Our Lady of Mercy's academics are second to none but to us, the true sense of family and the warmth which exudes from this school is unlike anything we had ever experienced. Once you walk through the doors of Mercy, you instantly feel as though you are home and the comfort this provides is amazing. This school is far more than just a great school.
