Welcome to Learning Services

  • Our Purpose and Responsibility

    The Learning Services Department provides leadership in the areas of curriculum, instruction, and assessment across all six schools in the Mercer Island School District. In partnership with the schools, we serve students age three to twenty-one in a variety of academic programs. Learning Services supports teachers by developing curriculum and assessment resources as well as offering research-based professional development. Our goal is to ensure teachers and staff are equipped with the necessary tools to offer a comprehensive educational experience for each student.
