Mercer Island High School district is a friendly environment and place to learn. During my very first day of freshman year, people were very welcoming. This school is not only friendly but also spirited!
Review Mercer Island School District
Mercer island has many great options for students to help them stand out to colleges, though the pressure that is placed on the students is immense. Everyone on the island is expected to succeeded and anyone who doesn't have straight A's is extremely embarrassed to admit it. This pressure comes from the extreme sense of competition throughout the student body to get into a top college. However the school district offers many advanced courses and access to technology.
Besides the fact their are limited AP courses for sophomores and lacking diversity, the teachers care about students and are a guiding us to succeed. Councliers are friendly and extremly nice and considerate. The food is great, easy access to the online library. Overall it is a great school district and full of friendly people.
