Half of these teachers have no idea how to teach, and the level of stress put on the students is ridiculous. Students get homework without being taught the subject, and then are expected to know how to do it. Yes, a few of the teachers are great, but the majority are less than satisfactory. Many students go home and have breakdowns over how stressed out they are, and a lot are talking about transferring. After all of the rules put in place this year, GMA feels more like a prison than a school.

I'm currently a senior at Gwynedd and the past four years here bring on much nostalgia. GMA has not only developed my academics, but has also allowed me to grow in ways I cannot fathom. Socially my experience has been phenomenal, as it has allowed me to branch out and become the confident girl I am today rather than the introverted one I was when I entered. Gwynedd's faculty is very nuturing and willing to help students out but at the same time they push each girl to do her best and are able to know this because of the small size. I couldn't reccomend this school enough and I am proud to say that I would go back and relive each and every day of my high school career and love every moment of it.

I am a parent and an alumna of GMA. Even though there were several other high schools that were less expensive and a good deal closer to our home, we chose GMA because it is that good. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, academics are very good college prep, and after school activities are numerous. My daughter and I both feel a real sisterhood environment there, a place where a young woman not only gets an great education but more importantly is truly encourged and free to be her true self while moving towards adulthood.

I am a 1974 graduate of the academy and I cannot express how much my Mercy education had meant to me. I went on to graduate from college (magna cum laude) and had a very successful career. I am now 'working for' another '74 alum and couldn't feel more blessed. Mercy is soooo much more than an education. The Mercy spirit is truly a lifetime gift.

Most of the teachers have been there too long, are too old, and have fogotten how to teach let alone interact with the students. Terrible math department.
