    "Mercy is a tight knit community, with small classes which benefits the students giving us a better opportunity for our questions being answered and our understanding of the topics in class. The teachers and administration are really nice and kind and the overall atmosphere of Mercy High School is like a big family."

    "?If you're a parent thinking about sending your child to McGann Mercy, take your money elsewhere. I'm junior this year. People say that the smaller the school, the closer the students are. Here, you couldn't be more incorrect. The school is highly cliquey & nasty rumors spread fast. People legit get bullied here & most teachers & staff turn a blind eye. Only a select few really care about their students. The food is SO overpriced, like, "$3 for four skinny mozzarella sticks" overpriced. Healthy options are $4.25 and up, like, the salad, but by the time you get the salad, it's dry, tasteless, & just pitiful. If you want to send your kid here for religion, don't. Many kids have turned to Atheism/Agnosticism because of these crazy religious teachers... I know I have. One of them said "It's okay to curse at God!"... what? Last time I checked you're supposed to talk to God with respect, but seems like that teacher forgot. Sports, as everyone knows, is awful. Don't send your kid here."

    "I am sad that people trash a great place. People who have never set foot inside a public school complain about rules and bullying. They are clueless. The complainers are the ones who think of themselves as victims and make everyone miserable. They have a choice to leave if it's so bad and we all wish that they would."

    "Nothing makes this dumpster a good school. The dean is a horrible man that picks and chooses who he wants to discipline along with the terrible social worker that won't life a finger to help students with bulling or mental health issues. The teachers would rather see their students fail then succeed. I was absolutely disgusted to see how my science teacher constantly addressed a student with an IEP embarrassing him in class. 98% of the students are all white trash bullies that go as far as threatening students by making reference to them being in gangs or they go as far as physical fighting. For a catholic school the amount of physical fighting that goes on is absolutely insane . Some of the rules in that school are just absolutely ridiculous like not being allowed to have a water bottle during the day unless you have a doctors note. Parents take my advise and don't put your child in mercy especially if they have an IEP because I guarantee you they will hate like I did."

    "I believe that Mercy is a school that once was less than stellar, but has now increased it's value in terms of academics and other social aspects. I had long-lasting friendships here, and the clubs and activities were fun to take part in. The teachers worked tirelessly even though many high school students falsely believe that their educators' only goal is to keep them from succeeding."
