Parent Edge falls under the Mercer Island PTA Council within the Mercer Island School District.

Mission Statement

Parent Edge strives to facilitate conversations within and among families, schools and the greater community. To support that goal, we sponsor speakers and discussions across a variety of parenting and child development topics. We partner with a variety of organizations that share our mission. We strive to be timely, thought-provoking and practical. We believe that active and informed parenting cultivates healthy children, healthy families, and healthy communities.

What We Do

As a non-profit group and part of the Mercer Island School District PTA, we bring national speakers to the Mercer Island/Seattle/Eastside community on various topics directed at parents of kids in the K-12 age range. We are a team of engaged parents from the public schools on Mercer Island: Island Park Elementary, West Mercer Elementary, Lakeridge Elementary, Northwood Elementary, Islander Middle School, Mercer Island High School and the Mercer Island Preschool Association.

Parent Edge Policy Statement

Parent Edge believes that the latest scientific research and best practices in parenting, education, and learning should be available to our community. Parent Edge does not promote, endorse or offer our events as venues for any local or national political or religious group or collectively support any political or religious agenda.
