    "I have just finished my freshman year at Mercy and I enjoyed it very much. Coming from public school, Mercy was a huge change for me. I came knowing no one that was going to the school. I quickly met great friends. Although an all girls school isn't for everyone, it is very beneficial.There is no worrying about your bedhead or your tired looking face. There is no stress to impress any boys. Also, you aren't deprived from males. There are dances and social events with the Chaminade Boys. As for academics, Mercy is good so far. The teachers are very kind and good at there jobs. They are always available when the students need help. I feel that the homework load is manageable and not actually difficult at all. All the girls in the school, no matter what age or grade, all talk and are all friendly. The graduating class of 2013 expressed that they feel extremely prepared for the college life ahead of them. The best part of Mercy is the family feeling. All the people involved in mercy, whether student or faculty, are friendly and work together. God and our faith is involved in all events and prayers are said daily. Mercy is a great school, but like anything, has room for improvement."

    "After going to a public school for eight years and going into Mercy for high school, I did not know what to expect. I did not get what I wished I had out of it. As for teachers: some were better than others, and some were not good teachers at all. I enjoyed having God in my daily life and loved the spiritual aspect of my education. Being an athlete, there were costs for everything: uniforms, a fee for actually playing the sport, transportation fees, etc. My parents spent a lot of money on my high school between all the fees, whatever fee you can think of, Mercy charges you for it! The school is limited on course offerings: my senior year was the first year they offered a psychology and sociology course. I would have liked to see more diverse offerings to give the girls a chance to figure out what they would like to do with their lives. Mercy never gave me the sense of reassuring what my career could potentially be. I went to Nassau my first two years of college and got much more out of it then I did from Mercy. I wish I had stayed in public school for high school because I would have gotten a much more promising education than what Mercy gave me."

    "I have been going to various (ivy) college informational sessions and so far Mercy is right on the money with curriculum. As with any school, it must be the right fit for your child."

    "As a parent I feel as though I have failed. OLMA is not the school I had hoped for. Academically, it's OK....lots of work...but is the work beneficial?? Religious Education: none. Her freshman and sophomore relgion was just wasted time. Other classes were fine. I expected more from the school. I thought my sending my daughter to a all girls school run by women she would witness strong leadership from woman, she did not. The administration just leaves everything 'status quo'. Leaders Club is supposed to be an 'elite' club: nonsense, it is totally arbitrary. The Athlectic Department: embarrassing. It is embarrassing for the girls to wear the Mercy uniforms. I feel I sent my daughter down the wrong path and feel very bad about it. These are years she can't do over....fortunately, she has met wonderful friends. I am grateful for that."

    "The cost is expensive,especially if you are not loaded. During open house administration gives the tuition cost, not including the $100 athletic fee + uniform costs+athletic wear +additional fee + fee...=10,000.it all adds up fast! i see girls leave because they can't afford the cost. The girls aren't given many volunteer opportunities and everything revolves around the white sweater club ('leaders' club) and student council; if a girl dosen't get into these clubs they are rejected from most opportunities. Although the course load can be quite overbearing i find that the girls do well on the regents (above national average), the teachers are extremely dedicated and they are all always available for help. mercy is a great school and I've made some great memories and been on some awesome trips-broadway show, albany-visit state senators, etc. Advice: when choosing a highschool look at three you can picture yourself at, shadow, then choose"
