Island Park is one of three elementary schools in the Mercer Island School District. It is located in the middle of the island, at 5437 Island Crest Way. Principal David Hoffman leads a staff of 65 who serve approximately 560 students. We are host of the district's English Language Learners (ELL) program, and offer an Extended Resource Room (ERR) for students with special learning needs. Other special programs include Special Education Resource Room, Counseling, LAP (remedial reading), a tuition-based foreign language program, technology integrated classrooms, student council, after school clubs, and before school choir, band and orchestra programs. Island Park is also a designated King County "Green School," an honor given in the spring of 2009 in recognition of our school's lunchroom composting program and newly installed Learning Garden. Island Park uses district adopted curriculum as the foundation for its instructional program. Individual teachers and/or grade level teams assess students' needs and adapt instruction as necessary for learning to occur. Teachers frequently integrate material from several disciplines to make learning more meaningful for students.
