Long Range Facilities Planning
Over the years, a broad-based Long Range Facilities Planning Committee made up of community and school leaders has met to develop recommendations for the District’s Long Range Facilities Plan (LRFP). The history from the 2019-20 LRFP may be viewed under the tab on the left.
The District is updating the LRFP in 2023 and current information on that process can be found under the 2023 Facility Updates tab on the left.
MISD facilities include:
Lakeridge, Island Park and West Mercer Elementary schools, built in 1953, 1956 and 1964, respectively, each received extensive overbuilds and renovations in 1995. Northwood Elementary was constructed in 2015-16.
Islander Middle School, originally constructed in 1958, received an overbuild and minor improvements in 1993, along with a small addition to the 300 building in 1999. In 2015-16, approximately half of the educational space was replaced with a new building that includes the Commons, gyms, music wing, library, 12 classrooms, and administration office.
Mercer Island High School, originally constructed in 1955, received extensive overbuilds, renovations, some demolition and additions in 1996-97. A new music addition was completed in 2012, and three small additions were added in 2014, to each of the classroom wings. The 2014 additions provided four STEM and six general purpose classrooms.
No significant improvements have been made to the Crest Learning Center, built in 1997, or the administration building, built in 1965. MISD also owns property on the south end of the island between Lakeridge Elementary and Islander Middle School, including the South Mercer Playfields. Additionally, MISD owns the Mary Wayte Pool, the PEAK, and other properties in the high school mega-block.
