Alum: The thing that stands out at Mercer Island High School is the standard set for students. There is an abundance of high achieving students who pride themselves on their success at school. The number of students who receive fives on their AP exams is abnormally high. Mercer Island High School tested in the top one percent of all schools in Washington for overall test scores in both math and reading. Many college students explained how they felt much more prepared for college than their peers because of the academic rigor at Mercer Island. However, because of the high achieving standard at Mercer Island, many students complain about the stress levels. Many students feel a lot of pressure to succeed because of the culture which the staff is attempting to address. Many clubs and organizations exist – I felt that every student had an opportunity to pursue a club or sport that they were interested in.
