    "Our son and daughter attend West Mercer Elementary School. We use Kelso's Choice at home to talk about situations reported in the world of adults. I appreciate the curriculum giving parents language and tools to tackle tough problems."

    "Not sure why people rate the school down for days off and half days, most schools do this now days. I have two girls going through West Mercer and we have been very pleased with the quality of the teachers, the curriculum and the administrators. We make the effort to communicate with the teachers and they are always willing to take the time and communicate with us. We moved to Mercer Island because of the school system and have not been let down."

    "Our grandson now has his sister's favorite teacher and he is finally really getting involved with learning! I think the school's great -- just wish they were a little more open to volunteers, as Montlake, in Seattle is. I've been there twice to bring cupcakes for Will's birthday, but would love to meet his teacher."

    "The teachers are excellent. I've been pleased with the balance of academic rigor that also respects the pace of learning for each child. Even in 1st grade, there was quite a bit of homework and weekly spelling tests. From day 1, my child was taught to embrace Kelso's choices for conflict resolution. When he was bullied (1x), the teacher escalated the incident to the principal and the school counselor got involved. The issue was immediately resolved. Teachers are super responsive to any questions or issues when I reach out to them. They have an art docent program, music room, and small computer lab. Also, a certified King County Level 1 Green school. My child has benefitted from after school lego clubs and art clubs."

    "West Mercer is an average school at best. The principal is interested only in making sure that there are no ripples in the water. Bullying? Sweep it under the rug. Sub-optimal teachers? Ignore it! I would rate my child's experience at WME as mediocre at best. Parents run the show; they forced out two principals while my child was there for no other reason than "we didn't like them". Translated: they didn't bow to our every demand for our "perfect" children. I'll never understand parents who think they know what's "best" for every child."
