Starting my sophomore year at OLMA, and not enjoying it. I thought after freshman year it could only get better, but seems like just the same;maybe worse. The rules of the school have gotten more stricter, not that strict is a bad thing. However, students have been getting detentions for ridiculous reasons
... Read more at some times and it hurts me when my friends cry because of something that may have not been their fault-like bringing in an absent note and administration says you never did...Some teachers are rude to some girls, or inconsiderate. This school, even though it is a catholic school, charges you for almost everything on too of the constantly growing tuition. No complaints about lunch food though.... Read less

*sigh* It really hurts me to give a bad review to a school. I have never made a review before but I feel this one is necessary. This school is much like the way the girls at the open house describe Sacred Heart Academy. Rude girls, cliques, rude teachers, too expensive, not fun, miserable girls. A lot

There was a girl in my math class who had problems and the teacher was so mean to her everyday. Well, I am transferring along with my friends at OLMA. Read less

As a parent, I feel that I have made a terrible decision for my daughter. I talk to parents who have just decided to put their child in the school and I hear many say that they are pulling out their child or are planning to. This school charges you for everything on top of their constantly growing tuition.
... Read more Worst part is, I hear after freshman year you cannot leave and many parents just want their child to go to Disney trip and then leave. My child doesn't like the teachers and the girls are always talking about parties, drinking, and their rich life. The grades academically for the school I see are not very high and I am probably better off sending my daughter to public school. I am disappointed in my decision for my daughter. Read less

Recently I went to a regatta with my school's crew team. When we started racing against OLMA, our boats collided which I thought was an honest mistake. No big deal, we started over but then it happened again. The girls in the boats attitude was rude and offensive. We let them ahead of us and obviously

People from the shore said that we were steering straight and they had cut us off..I understand that maybe the crashing was a mistake,but there IS NO NEED FOR THE ATTITUDE AND THE RUDENESS, the OLMA girls crew team REALLY needs to work on their attitude, PLEASE AND THANK YOU!!! Sincerely, the other boat that you cut off... Read less

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

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. Read less

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
... Read more 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. Read less

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.
... Read more 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. Read less
