School Official Point of View

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.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Absolutely NOT! This school has lost several families due bullying issues not being resolved and several teachers have been accused of very ugly bullying tactics against students!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers quit in the middle of the year - with the latest quitting or being let go in February! Too many teacher complaints with no changes or different approaches administered.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Homework is used to teach the students lessons they did not have time to review in class, so parent end up teaching new information - very frustrating!



- a
This school has gone so far as to start begging families for good reviews online! Very disappointed in the academics of this school - their claims are very falsely portrayed. The teachers are terrible and a middle school teacher has suddenly quit - 3rd middle school teacher in less than 5 years! The students are consistently berated if any complaints are made of the teachers. Just a sad situation as to how quickly this school has deteriorated!

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
My children always come home with school work. They never complained when it comes to completing each homework. Each homework have specific deadlines so the children are learning how to manage their time as well.




- a
Our Lady Of Mercy School is a very good school. I have learned so much about my faith as well as my subjects. Athletics is also a very big part of the school, being in JV and Varsity basketball also in track made me a well rounded student. The teachers are so much fun but very strict when it comes to school and homework. I love our buddy program, we get the chance to guide our kindergartens throughout the school year at recess, Friday mass, school events and many more. I am now in 9th grade and doing very well in my new school. Our Lady of Mercy, the teachers in all its entirety has prepared me and molded me to who I am and who I can become in the future

After being lucky enough to experience some of the best public school districts in the country, a job move brought our family to Winston. In order to make a good decision, we visited every school in the area. After meeting the principal and teachers, we knew Our Lady of Mercy was the right fit for our children. Although our older children were coming from STEM schools we felt that they were missing a strong writing program and OLM filled that gap. Mrs. Read, Mrs. Farmer, Mrs. Z, Dr. J. and Ms. Degnan are Just a few of the very special teachers who have had major impacts on my children's lives. It is definitely worth a visit!

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Dr. J. is a wonderful resource there. She works with children in very small groups or one on one. She will also put plan in place with classroom teachers and the parents to ensure that children are successful learners. She truly advocates for children with any learning differences. She is incredible and a huge blessing!


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Sr Geri knows every student by name. She treats them with love and fairness.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Catholic values are very important and strongly encouraged.
