School Reviews

I just wanted to thank all the teachers that taught me the morals and great knowledge of life and religion. The quality and discipline of this schools lessons have proved to be enough for me to be able to truly say, "I can do anything that I am willing to work hard at." My special thanks to the Sisters of Mercy. May God bless all your students and faculty.
