ABOUT US

Here at Divine Mercy, we value and prioritize individual, holistic learning. Our school community is a place in which teachers, administration, and staff, along with parish leadership, support the whole learner: academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.

Teachers at our school collaborate to create an academic environment that prioritizes student growth. Students are challenged to achieve and excel through guided goal setting and individualized learning plans. Administration empowers teachers to teach above and beyond the Common Core and help students become well-rounded students, rather than just excellent test takers. Parents are partners in their children’s learning and are welcomed as volunteers, librarians, lunch helpers, and field trip chaperons.

Our parish staff teaches our students to live their faith through service projects, liturgical services, and in the classroom instruction.

Faith and education go hand-in-hand at Divine Mercy, as Jesus is at the center of everything we do. A newly built chapel gives students a unique opportunity to witness others practicing their faith at daily Mass — and adds a new dimension into their participation in Catholic services, like adoration and the rosary.

WHY DIVINE MERCY?

We’ve collected 10 reasons on what sets Divine Mercy apart!

Smaller class sizes mean more personalized instruction from the teachers.

REASON #2

We take PRIDE (perseverance, responsibility, integrity, diligence and empathy) in everything we do.

REASON #3

Learning is fun! Technology is integrated into the class work every day; projects are used to show learning and teachers make lessons interesting!

REASON #4

Field Trips are an important part of learning. We have been to Trees for Tomorrow in Eagle River, and to Washington, DC, First Stage Theater, St. John the Evangelist Cathedral, Betty Brinn Museum, Holiday Folk Fair, and The Milwaukee Art Museum this year alone. These trips help make learning meaningful.

Our student council leads to help others. We have helped the MACC fund, the Hunger Task Force, our sister parish in Guatemala, and senior citizens in our community.
