I agree with below. Best 3 years of my life. Although the school is harsh on its punishments. For example, in washington middle school, one fight = 3 day suspension. At mercer, one fight = expulsion
Mercer Middle School is the BEST school ever. I went their for 6th grade but moved ): This school has everything. I love their lunch choices, the teachers, play equipment, & diversity. If you live around the Beacon Hill area in Seattle I recommend that you go to Mercer. It will be the best 3 years of your life.
As a former student, I'd say being in this school was the best 3 years of my life. I loved the teachers(they really get to know students there), the music program wasn't the best compared to other middle schools but was still fun to be in(band/orchestra contests and concerts especially), and the honors/Spectrum taught by experienced teachers really gets hardworking students ahead. Of all the sports teams in mercer, the ultimate frisbee teams were the best(judging by all their trophies- I never joined, though). If only I could relive 7th and 8th grade...
Mercer is the Best School The students Are Nice and the teachers Are Nice Too
I am a current student at Mercer. I personally think it is a great school with a lot of diversity. I love the teachers and I really love this school. It has a lot of wonderful after- school programs such as volleyball and frisbee. The students here are really nice and awesome. I would recommend this school.
This is my daughters 2nd year at Mercer, and it has been great. She is in the honors program and blayed on the volleyball team. she has many great friends and is happy there. That say's alot!!
We are feeling great about Mercer. It has a very friendly and accepting culture--the kids have a great attitude and we don't see the social tiers or bullying that you hear about at some other middle schools. Almost all the teachers we've had contact with are fantastic--my kids' science, social studies and language arts courses have been impressive. We were disappointed that they don't have better options for advanced math for 6h graders, but the school has worked hard with parents to accomodate the advanced kids. The band seems to be doing very well and the Ultimate program is inspiring--dominating success fueled by goofy fun.
Mercer is a great school... Although the principal is not that great. I was there for three year it was fun and i played on the Ultimate team which was a great chance to get out there and play a sport! There a few great teachers in every Grade which is Great!
I hated my three years SO MUCH! I am a very good student, honestly, and this school challenged me NOT AT ALL! The whole administrative team was mean and unhelpful, and would never answer my questions. Yes, there are a handful of good teachers, but i would reccomend sending your kid to Denny or Washington. The only good thing is the ultimate team.
The school is great. The students have great spirit, the school has been remodeled, and they have a great ultimate team
Mercer is a wonderful school. In the past, when I went there, I noticed everyone was mutally involved. The teacher were deeply involved in student success and concerns of parents. The school offered opportunity to diverse student and student life. This school is/was really down to earth. Also, their music program has very widely expanded. Their orchestra has taken first place in 'The Music In the Parks' (competition) several times in a row.If it wasn't for that school I probably wouldn't be where I today. It is greatly appreciated, and just like every school, it has problems, but don't be too quick to judge. All Mercer needs is a chance and you will truly see how a seed has come to blossom into a beautiful rose.
My kids have done great at Mercer, and I'm really glad we chose to send them there. I think the principal has made some really important changes. The kids at Mercer are nice & the teachers really care about the students. My kids have been in honors classes at Mercer and my oldest is doing really well great in honors classes in high school now. I appreciated that Ms Bertucci's 8th grade Integrated I math was really a tough class - my older student learned a lot in that class and is really doing well in Integrated 2 in high school.
The school is small enough to know that your child is noticed yet big enough to have that middle school feel. This school keeps improving every year
The school is straight up horrible. Although there is a few bright spots in academics, the enviorment is horrible.
The building is kinda ugly, there is not that much homework to do, the school needs a paint job, and needs to be cleaner.
