    Our Mission

    We are an international community of learners: opening a door to the world. At Mercer every student is a reader, writer, mathematician, scientist, and thinker. Our mission is to create and sustain the first high-performing, high poverty middle school in the state of Washington. We believe that all of our students will excel.


    Our Vision

    We expect that 90% of our 8th grade students will read, write and do math at standard as measured by our Washington State test, formerly MSP. Our theory of action is that the quality of instruction, coupled with the relationship between adults and students, is the key to student performance. We must support classroom instruction with excellent professional development, strong interventions, proactive support systems, and diagnostic assessments that lead to learning.
