School Reviews

  • Recommended October 14, 2013 - Mercy is a wonderful place to learn. I love the sense of community that was missing in our neighborhood public school. The students have "prayer partners", which builds a strong bond between the older and younger students. The school has great opportunities for service to the community. The teachers are extremely kind and supportive. My older child is learning wonderful organizational skills as she is being prepped for middle school. While the educational style is more on the traditional side, there is an emphasis on the basics; handwriting, written composition and grammar that are lacking in the public school curriculum. Mercy is the full package, community and strong academics. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 31, 2013 - We could not be happier with Mercy. The faculty is amazingly dedicated. There is a top notch special education/"inclusion program". My kids are not in the program but it is actually a benefit for the entire school. Mercy has proven to be a nurturing, challenging and inclusive environment where all children are accepted and truly seem to thrive. We could not be happier. In this area it is also a bargain!! Love it!!! - Posted by Parent
