It was small enough and everyone is pretty down to earth. But the bullying, vaping, smoking, chewing, swearing, and drinking needs to stop!

Mercer is very hospitable in the way that it tends to be accepting even though it is a small school. There is a lot of one on one interaction between the staff and students, making it a friendly environment to come to every day. Even though it is a decent school, Mercer tends to sometimes get wrapped up in the smaller issues as opposed to the bigger ones. We are a lot more concerned about our senior projects and our class projects than we are concerned about teaching the students how to apply to school or how to become financially secure.
Teachers are definetly fair, and willing to work with students that are willing to work with them. There is more diversity than some other schools of the area, and academics are excellent. Never had a problem with safety or any people. Bullying isnt much worse than other schools. Facilities and Resources are satisfactory. Lunch is satisfactory, and has great variety. There is a great range of services for students in need of them as well.
