This is truly a Brilliant school. We started our child off in public school, but were terribly dissatisfied and needed to find a school that would ensure that our child would get the best possible education. What a difference! Our teacher truly cares that the children not only receive the fundamentals,

The school environment is warm, creative, and modern, while remaining organized and well grounded in 'tried and true' traditional methods as well. The community of parents is also amazing, it's like an extended family where parents help each other and work together to help their school. Our only regret is that we didn't put our child in Our Lady of Mercy straight from the beginning, but at least our younger children will benefit from our older child's experience. Read less

I am the current parent of 4 students at OLM. We LOVE the school. The teaching staff is second to none. As a former educator, I couldn't be happier with our decision to attend OLM. The 'not-so flattering' review below is honestly the first negative thing I have heard from a student during our years

I will;however, admit that although my overall opinion of the Early Learning Center is tops, I will say that if you are looking for a structured educational based pk program, there are others out there for the same tuition. Our decision with our fourth child was to take advantage of other opportunities & return him for K-8. Read less

I am an alumna of OLMS, and my youngest child of four children is now enrolled at the school.

I still treasure the memories made at this wonderful school. Read less

I'm not a parent, I'm an alumni- but I just have to warn you, other than a small amount of teachers, this school is not good. With the exception of Mrs. Feeney and Mrs. Cerjanec, the teachers are actually pretty mean. One of them actually read my very low french grade aloud so people could laugh at

It has a very clichy atmosphere, and if you do send your kids there, which I suggest you don't, make sure you ask them if there okay alot, because my parents never knew I was severely depressed there. I don't even know one student who enjoyed their time there. I am speaking from direct experience, avoid this school. The 'music program' is one day a week, a person comes to the school, and you go to the school early, and other than athletics, there are no extracurriculars. Read less
