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!

Mercer Island School District has a very good public school system. Academics and Sports are valued by much of the community. There are four public elementry schools, one middle school, and one high school. The High School provides lots of opportunities for students to get involved.
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.
