    "My daughter went to Our Lady of Mercy School for 8 years, then went off to finish High School at Kellenberg Memorial Catholic School. If it weren't for the great teachers they have there, she wouldn't be where she is today. After Kellenberg, she went to NYU in Manhattan for 4 years of college and 4 years of medical school. Then became a doctor May 22, 2013 where she is now doing her residency in San Franscisco, California. She got her head start with Sister Mary Beth who was so nice and caring. Sister Joanne was the principal back then and she was absolutely great to deal with, I can't say enough about this school, as all my nieces and nephews went there and became lawyers, nurses and pilots. This Catholic School is the best way to start your kid off. I would high recommend this school to everyone. Mary Faderl/Niedfeld"

    "I am highly impressed with the changes that are taking place at Our Lady of Mercy. Mrs. Harrigan, the principal, holds teachers accountable for their performance and teaching. The teachers are motivated and dedicated to helping every child learn. The curriculum the younger students are using is incredible and appeals to the children. The teachers in the upper grades are vibrant and innovative. There are tons of new after school clubs and activities. As a parent with children in the school, I am confident that Our Lady of Mercy is the best education for my children."

    "Since sister Joanne left and this new principal took over, this school has gone from a loving nurturing school to a place that seems as warm as an operating room and just as sterile. Mrs Harrigan likes to talk a good game but when questioned on her new policies, she cannot give a straight answer. She shows favoritism to the families with multiple children in the school so she doesn't lose those precious tuition dollars and so her rate of retention doesn't slide as well as the children of board members and the children of the parents who volunteer constantly. Save your money. This school is no better than a bad public school."

    "Boy this August 31 review is either in denial or can't see the train coming. As a former OLM parent who volunteered ALL the time those reviews are spot on. It's true - at one time it was a great school - but those years are long gone. A change in administration, a change in pastor and some great teachers leaving while other who should be moved stay. I hope you do not currently have children in the school because you will realize what a deficit your children will have when it is too late. History with a teacher who falls asleep in class and nothing is done about it, teachers who are burnt out and constantly scream at the children and behind in math according to all high schools - unfortunately you will find out. This is a great venue - a book can have a great cover - but when you start reading the pages....... Flat out, currently, the school does not prepare the kids for later grades. It did at one time - with a different administration and better teachers - but that was another day. Be careful before you consider enrollment and even continuing."

    "The posts before this one dated June 28th and May 28th could not be more wrong. It is unfortunate that posts can be made by individuals who never contributed to the school their time other than the time it takes to complain. Mercy student have excelled in high school because of their preparation and the sense of community that is taught. The administration has an open door policy and monitors the behavior of all the children to ensure that respect of others is the key element. There was a recent change in parish pastors and the school received many new student from other schools that had closed. Because of this many of these parents do not contribute their time and talents to the parish as had been over the years. Long and short - this is one of the finest schools for your children. The teachers care, the parish cares and the community cares. This school comes highly recommended and the education is second to none."
