Excellent school with excellent teachers. If you have a choice, send your child to this school! They have high quality staff and respectable students. Also, if your child has a medical condition, there happens to be a hospital right next door! Fun Fact: The previous WA governor (Gary Locke) attended this school.
I actually love mercer. I'm going to 8th grade this year(2014-2015). Sometimes it's hard to find out who the real and fake ones are at mercer. Teachers are actually helpful and I love how they try to be like us teenagers these days. The homework isn't hard at all to be honest, just ask for help and they will help you right away.
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...
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.
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.
