The course selection that is offered here is good for students that plan to go into the medical field, and the teachers care. However, everything else about this school is disappointing. I question the rigor of the courses, as I feel that they are not as challenging as AP courses at a normal public school. You also really miss out on the normal high school experience and social scene because the school is so small. Each grade has about 20-30 students, and I don't think most high school students could survive in this setting because it is very isolated from normal public schools. I have made a few good friends, but, your options are extremely limited which makes some friendships feel forced. Our school has no sports teams and only a handful of clubs. Administration can be disorganized and ineffective. The only bathroom in our main academic building has 1 stall with a curtain as a door, and there are only 2 stalls! The wifi also hasn’t been working since the start of this school year.

Teachers work without a contract and don’t get paid enough considering they teach almost all grades of both the HSA and STEM program. School nurse not qualified for job. Bathrooms lack attention (i.e.: ripped shower curtain as bathroom stall door for 5 years straight). Small cafeteria=crowded=fire hazard. School has purchased a few flat screen TVs and doesn’t use them for anything.
Mercer County Tech is an amazing school with great teachers and students. Unlike most high schools, the grades are mixed and interact a lot. The atmosphere is really nice and usually not stressful at all.
