Principal's Message

 Vicki Pucket

Hello Islander Parents:

In light of the recent executive order in our nation regarding immigration status you may be worried about our students and some of our families, friends, neighbors, and loved ones.

We would like to assure you that our school community at Mercer Island High School is about ALL students and we embrace and encourage diversity in our mission and values. We continue to be committed to educating our students and we value all students regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, socio-economic status, gender identification, country of origin, sexual orientation, native language, and citizenship status.

We will do everything within our power to make sure that all of our students are safe, honored, and respected while in our care. Read More
