Mercer Island School District Reviews

Most classes at Mercer Island High School are great and engaging and you learn a lot. The science classes can be a little too easy sometimes if you really want to learn a lot. Students have to take two science classes at the same time if they want to take more advanced science courses. The teachers are very helpful and most of them are good at keeping you engaged and conveying concepts effectively. There are plenty of math courses, both more basic for people who struggle with math and more advanced for people who are passionate about it. The English and History teachers are great. Mercer Island also has an amazing band program.

It's a very academically challenging school with a very welcoming atmosphere for students of all identities. Teachers in this district care about their students so much. It can be cliquey, but that to be expected.
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!
