Mercer Area Senior High School Reviews
The teachers at Mercer Area Senior High are amazing. There are many opportunities to learn at Mercer. Mercer has classes that can be beneficial for life. From financial algebra (learning about taxes, insurance, stock, etc.) to Government classes. There are many academic choices as well. there are multiple bands, multiple sport, an amazing speech team, and many more! It is an outstanding school to attend
I've been going to Mercer Area High School for about 6 years and there is no other high school I would have rather gone to. The extracurricular activities and sports are so diverse and open to anyone. The academic system is also diverse, from physics to journalism to concert choir, there is something for everyone. The teachers and staff are so kind and approachable and willing to help anyone in need any time a student needs it. It is also a safe place to be; an off duty police officer will stay there throughout the school day. The environment is calming and relaxing, it is a great place for an education.
My favorite part of this school was the teachers. It was obvious to see in them a level of excitement and love for what they taught that made the experience more enjoyable and worthwhile. I would love to see the school receive more funding, for I know that it would be used well.
