Northwood Elementary (School # 4)  


In the Feb. 11, 2014 special election, Mercer Island voters overwhelmingly approved three targeted facilities projects to address overcrowding in Mercer Island schools.

After months of public discussions, meetings and work by the Mercer Island community, school board and district, a bond proposal was approved by the board in Sept. 2013. It was then approved by more than 74 percent of Mercer Island voters in Feb. 2014. The targeted facilities projects include:

  • building a fourth elementary school on the district-owned North Mercer campus;
  • expanding Islander Middle School, including 14 new classrooms and lab spaces, commons and cafeteria, gymnasiums, music rooms and administrative space; and
  • building 10 additional classrooms at Mercer Island High School, including four lab spaces and six general education classrooms. 
Estimated completion dates for each project are:
  • Mercer Island High School addition | 2015-16 school year
  • Islander Middle School expansion | 2016-17 school year
  • Elementary #4 | 2016-17 school year
