The Mercer Island School District is a public U.S. school district in Washington. Located in an affluent bedroom community of Seattle, Mercer Island, it has a strong academic reputation. The five schools on Mercer Island provide approximately 4,000 students with primary and secondary education.

In 2015 the school district banned the game of tag. The district said it was for safety reasons, while parents said that they had not been consulted and were unaware of this until their children told them.[2]


The school district is made up of three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school (with an alternative branch).

  1. Elementary Schools:
    • Lakeridge Elementary
    • Island Park Elementary, K-5, around 530 students
    • West Mercer Elementary
