I attend this school now and i am very unhappy with the small learning commuites. They do nothing for me. They do nothing for anyone besides seperate them from their social groups. I often dont get enough challenging work and i get bored with some classes. Very displeased.

Small Learning Communities do nothing for the academic environment and seem to make the level learning worse than usual. My daughter has been in 2 of the SLC's, hates both of them, doesn't get the help she needs, feels overwhelmed on a daily basis and is stressed beyond belief. It is NOT a good environment for learning. I am so sad about this as she's such a smart kid. They teach down to the kids and kids like my daughter who are easily bored get no real challenging work - they are left to flounder. Especially those students are who are shy and don't speak up quickly. It's also sad because I graduated from MPHS (late 80's) and it's frustrating to see so many kids failing and falling behind with no thought to even help them. Totally displeased with this school and the district in general.

Out of the three schools I have children in, I think the high school is the best so far. My sone seems to be doing great after doing 10 yrs of homeschooling. Teachers have been fantastic, very helpful iin the transition and quick to respond to concerns

When looking through the posted reviews, I would ask everyone to take note of the dates. Marysville School District has worked hard to ensure every student receives a well rounded education while giving them the option to study courses that interest them. The creation of SLCs (Small Learning Communities) in the district, has both postitive and negative aspects. There are currently 8 options for students to attend here in district. Arts and Technology High School Bio Med Academy International School of Communications Marysville Mountain View High School Pathways of Choice School for the Entrepreneur Teaching and Tech Academy Tulalip Heritage High School Each school is geared towards an area of interest. The only real difference is the electives they offer. Every school provides the courses needed to graduate. With how the schools are arranged, you may not be able to take Marine Biology and Auto Tech, you'll have to make a choice. Life is choices... Please remember that!

My son attends MPHS and he has no complaints. He works very hard for his grades and is doing well. He has made several new friends and seems to be adjusting to high school life very well.

My oldest daughter goes to MPHS school and she loves it. There is a huge variety of classes, sports and clubs that give everyone a chance to get involved. At every school there are going to be teachers that don't meet your expectations, but so far I have not had any major problems. From my experiences, I would recomend this school.

This school is over crowded and has some very poor quality teachers. Anybody with knowledge can teach a kid who is eager to learn, but a good teacher can find ways to reach the majority of kids who are 'less then eager'. Good teachers seem to be in short supply at MPHS. The school is now looking to break into small learning communities because they have found that smaller schools have a better record than larger schools overall. I'm not sure if larger schools which pretend to be smaller schools will be successful, at the end of the day the school still has the same number of students and teachers and a whole new set of problems. All I can say is good luck to any student unfortunate enough to attend MPHS. The schools need to get back to the basics and teach our kids.

I believe it is crowded but they do do the best for my child as they possibly can... and I think that's terrific!

There are way too many kids at this school to even get some real personal attention from the teachers. They bailed out on over 2,000 kids who needed education and some who even had their college plans messed up. It forced many kids to move to Arlington High School, Stanwood High School, and Lakewood. This school is doing a very poor job of it's learning and education ability and fail to help every student meet their needs. Marysville School District overall, is completely unorganized and overcrowded. There's no need for this.

BIG! My kids both got lost in the 10th grade. Individual teachers are good but most are just going through the motions.

I think that eventually little Marysville will need another highschool for their own good. Pilchuck will do for now. Teachers are focusing on sophomores passing the WASL, rather than teaching the traditional curriculum. Music, sports, art and other extracurricular activities seem to be accesible very easily. Parents aren't involved too much though.
