Greetings Mariners,


We are looking forward to an exciting 2018-2019 school year at Marina High School. Entering our second year of implementation of our Early College and Career model we are elated to proclaim we are off to a great start. Construction of the new gymnasium is underway, with completion expected to be before the end of the school year. Additionally, we will be debuting 1:1 devices for every Marina High School scholar.


In continuing with our Early College and Career model, we will be exploring how we are all Efficacious, Adaptable, Worldly Wise, and Influential, further developing ourselves, our community, and our impact on the world. Our hope is that all Mariners, staff and scholars understand their purpose and have the agency to achieve it.  At Marina High School we view agency as: “The capacity and propensity to take purposeful initiative-the opposite of helplessness. Young people with high levels of agency do not respond passively to their circumstances; they tend to seek meaning and act with purpose to achieve the conditions they desire in their own and others’ lives.”

 -Tom Vander Ark, 2015


Marina High’s dedicated staff have many events and moments planned that will help us realize this vision as a community. Please join us at our Back to School Night to learn more about our exciting programs and how you can contribute to the Marina High School vision on Thursday, September 20th, 6:30 p.m.- 8:00 p.m.
