Hello Islander Parents,
Gender Neutral Student Bathroom: Last year we established a gender neutral bathroom that is available to all students; it is located in the 100 hallway. Last May we received guidance from the federal government instructing public schools to comply with Title IX by providing suitable facilities (i.e. bathrooms and locker rooms) for gender neutral students. We complied with the guidance and will continue with this practice moving forward. Students are welcome and have the right to use whichever bathroom or locker room they identify with (men, women, or gender neutral). Our school will continue to be a safe place for all students. If you like more information about understand children’s gender, below is a link to an informative website: https://www.genderspectrum.org/explore-topics/parenting-and-family/ Read More

More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

On February 27, our Mercer Island community was shaken and experienced a threat of violence, or in other words an act of domestic terrorism, against the Stroum Jewish Community Center. Our District condemns this threat of violence in the strongest terms possible, whether this reprehensible act was intended as an act of hate, anti-Semitism or otherwise intended as anti-immigrant.
