I want to share the experience that my Great Granddaughter has enjoyed by attending Our Lady of Mercy School in East Greenwich. She entered OLM this year in the third grade. Previously, she had attended a local Warwick public School. She is receiving a well-rounded education. She is, of course, taught the Basics ie, Reading, Writing, English, and Math but she is also reaching hands-on Technology, Language, Art, Music and she is learning at a rapid pace. This school offers personal development along with community activities that encourage and develop teamwork. My Great Granddaughter is challenged and having fun at the same time. A win-win for all. Her Teachers are proactive and personally take the initiative to identify issues that need attention and encourage growth in her education. She is challenged and supported. These Teachers simply put the child's education first. I am delighted that she is now being prepared for a happy, healthy, and productive future. Thank you Our Lady of Mercy and all the wonderful and caring Teachers and Faculty. Barbara Rossi.

I love OLM! We transferred our son from public school to OLM for grades 7/8. It was the best decision we made. From the moment we had our initial visit, we noticed a big difference in the kids. All the kids we saw in the hallway, even the little ones, had their heads up, gave eye contact, said hello to the principle and us. It's clear they instill these values in the kids. In the Covid Pandemic, the school has done an exceptional job handing things. Every person in that school is on the same page. They are all pitching in, going above and beyond, doing their part to make things run smoothly so the kids can attend school live each day. Every day I pull up to the school, I know I made the right choice and say a small prayer: "thank you for allowing me to send my son here. I'm grateful for the opportunity." While our previous school wasn't bad and they did what they could, I never felt this way. There is a difference. Thank you everyone at OLM for all you do!

OLM is the embodiment of academics, enrichment, and family. The teachers and administration are dedicated to ensuring the success of each student. The school is a great balance of academic and religious education. We like the fact that the school is not too large nor too small. The environment provides an opportunity for student growth. We love knowing our kids can attend this school through eighth grade. We wouldn't consider sending our children anywhere else!

Best regional school! OLM is a true community of families and faculty. We have sent all of our kids here for 8 years and look forward to many more. Teachers are caring, go above and beyond and keep structure for excelling in academics. Sports, robotics, mock trial, Science Olympiad and many more ways to be engaged!
