Everyone at Mercer is super nice. The classrooms look super cute which is impressive to many parents. As a former educator, I wasn't very impressed by the lack of innovative instructional techniques. Much of the reading "program" seems to be whole language focused which went out in the early 90s. The open school building which lacks walls, means there are no chalk boards, and limited white boards. This can cause difficulty for visual learners (over 80% of children are), and means there is a lot of noise.

The principal of this school is outstanding, and the energy and dedication of the staff is very visible. At the moment the class sizes are very large which is not ideal but will hopefully change.

The level of parent involvement is unlike anything I have ever experienced. There are always parents helping in the classroom and at extra curricular activities. The parents donate their time and money to make this school community strong. The teachers and parents are friendly and striving for the same goals...to make the childrens learning experience a success and form friendships (relationships) that will last a life time. The academic atmosphere is top quality. We have a 'gifted' child in our family and the school has done a great job of keeping him challenged. As you can tell our family is happy with Mercer. If you are undecided schedule a tour with the Principal, Mr. Gates.
