I went to Marine View and was class of 1988 when it was K-8. This is an amazing school. I also did my internship teaching with some of my teachers that taught at Marine View. Now I am currently a 1st grade teacher. I also have friends that teach here and they are top notch teachers. Now my daughter goes here and is in 6th grade. The 6th grade staff is amazing. I would definitely recommend this middle school to anyone.

This school is great! My 8th grade year and I'm having a blast. Although with any school, it has its problems. Teachers and Staff are hard at work trying their hardest to resolve these minor problems, and I would say they are doing quite an excellent job. Our new principle Mrs. Morris, now on her second year, is doing a great job in taking charge. She is very positive and encouraging to us students. At this school, there are the amazing teachers. Some of these many teachers are very passionate about teaching. They all are truly inspiring to me and many other students. I can feel the excitement every time I walk into the classroom. In my experience, I have not got one class with a dull or boring teacher. From 7th to 8th grade, I'm starting to see how big of a jump it is. Classes are getting tougher and require a lot of attention to keep up. Since this school has such great teachers, us students can find ourselves easily able to ask and get help when we need it. If a student does not understand a problem in Algebra, for example, our teacher goes out of their way to help us as much as possible. I would highly recommend any parents to send their children to this fantastic school.

Wow - I was so nervous about this school reading all the negative reviews. However, my daughter started this year and I'm really pleased. Marine View did a great job orientating her to middle school and has many programs for the kids. They also do lots of fun activities like class dodgeball competitions, spirit days - crazy hair, neon day, etc and the food is great - they offer traditional fare as well as Pick Up Stix, Pizza and Togo's. Friday is dollar doughnut day. My daughter is on the track team and they have ASB and many opportunities to get involved. Marine View is in a very nice area and the school is kept up well. From what I read on this site - I was seriously considering private school or Mesa View. I am glad I gave Marine View a chance - it has turned out to be a very nice school.

My daughter is getting ready to enter the 7th grade. She had a wonderful 6th grade year. Roni Ellis transformed this school into an amazing place. Now her successors are continuing the high expectations of students and the fun learning environment. I love the strict dress code and the reward system based on community involvement and academic excellence. I heard many stories of what the school was like before, and can't believe how much it has changed for the better. The sports, music and dance programs are excellent and give kids a way to be involved with their school while learning.

A horrible transition for an 8th grader! The kids are disrespectful, unkind bullies with no manners! Children are held accountable for their actions always without full review, but the adult teaching staff are not held accountable to behave as adults. There is much bullying even from the teachers who say berating comments to students. Middle school years are tough, but if you are new, don't spend these formative years here.

marine view is a really good school that provides excellent education and fun for all the students. even though this school has really great teachers and a pretty good principal, it lacks school spirit and fun activities such as fun assemblies, field trips, and clubs to join. with all the budget cuts from the economy, marine view and other schools in the district will have to cut many programs like outdoor ed for the 6th graders, yosemite for the 8th, & more. nonetheless, its a wonderful school (:

This school has great teachers and the principal and vice principal are great too. Although, being a student at this school the kids can be very stuck up and mean. If you are not part of a group it is hard to feel part of the school.

Fantastic teachers, great academic school! social bullying is out of control. Cliques, social segregation & bratS are commonplace. Administration needs to open eyes to the severity of this this situation.

This school is full of children who cannot keep their hands to themselves. My son has endured 1 1/2 years of bullying and nothing has been done about it. We are going to transfer him to a Private school. Many of his friends have had the same issues and left this school for a better place.

So far, not impressed. Went to back to school night to get an idea of the school but it was very disorganized with information given to the parents in a haphazard fashion. Some teachers, and one in particular, seem to be going through the motions. Our child has been docked for missing assignments that were in fact turned in or were never discussed. Disorganized! I realize that with almost 1k kids it's tough in these times and I wish the new principal good luck.

I have two daughters who have attended Marine View School; one who has graduated and one who will be in the seventh grade. Miss Parish is an outstanding educator who has served as both vice-principal and principal of Marine View. She cares about the kids and the curriculum that is taught; she made regular rounds to interact with the students and to be accessible. I also appreciated her quick response to any questions I had. I will miss her at Marine View and wish her well at her new school.

Not that great of a school! All they care about is kids going well in school and they dont even have teachers to teachers to teach the kids! Mrs Parish and Mr Cross are horiable principals. They dont even care about the kids and are very mena about it. There are some teachers that dont even know what they are talking about and are very mean to kids. The lunch ladies are really mean and dont help the kids at all and the kids have to much hand on with the other students. There are boys and girls that are all over eachother and no one seems to care... I hope the new principal is alot better then our old Mrs Parish

SO, we have been at Marine View for 1 year. I'm not impressed. I think the school lacked leadership by the Principal. I guess I can only write about her. I dont think she had the skills to manage a Middle School or the staff that came with it. We just got a new Principal so maybe things will change. I do believe that there are teachers here that are not held accountable for the classes they teach and the grades the kids are getting. Maybe our new Principal will change that and make the teachers care a little more. Its not all the teachers. There are some INCREDIBLE teachers here who were definitely supposed to be teachers because they shine at it and the kids know it. (Mr Fotanakes and Ms Silver are both wonderful). Note to the new Principal, hold teachers accountable, especially the ones that have tenure.

I had some great years in Marine View. All my teachers were nice and made learning fun. I would like to thank Mrs. Ybarra for teaching wonderful lit/lang. It was a blast in her class. Mrs. Robinson was a great math teacher.

Marine View is a wonderful school. The standards are very high and the teachers keep in touch with the parents. As a parent I feel very involved and happy with my son's education. He is a spec ed student, and the staff have done everything they can to keep him included and keep me in the loop. I couldn't have wished for a better middle school experience for my son or myself.

Overall, my three years at Marine View was the most memorable time of my life so far. I made so many great friends and experienced so many important life lessons. The principal and staff are so wonderful and full of school spirit. Along with a champion sports team, Marine View offers a fabulous music program and show choir, of which I participated in. Of all the schools in the area, I definitely recommend Marine View Middle School.

From the first day I was here at the beginning of 7th grade, this school had me very impressed. The sports program was excellent (and fun to participate in), the teachers truly care about students, extracurricular and elctive activities could probably not be better, and the student body is full of school spirit and support. With many students outgoing and very nice, it is not hard to find a few (or more) great friends. Going to this middle school is truly an honor and an amazing experience.

The principal could give two cents about what happens to the children in this school everything you don't want for your children they will be exposed too and guess what she won't care.

As a California Distinguished School, I think that Marine View has paid strict attention to developing a multifaceted educational program for various types of students. Music, computers, woodshop, sports, and even student appointed 'conflict managers' are some of the highlights of extracurricular activities. The parent support organization, the PFA has fundraised quite well, and has allowed classrooms to be computer accessible. My only comment that I would like to see improved upon, is if they could incorporate a second language program in the curriculum starting in the sixth grade, so that by eighth grade the students could potentially 'test out' of first year language at high school level, and continue in high school at a more advanced level allowing for completion of a language requirement before senior year. All of the teachers are personable, well-qualified, and for the most part very fair.

I am a former employee of this school. Although Marine View is a Blue Ribbon school, and is known for high test scores, the leadership is weak. Teachers who need accountability are not held accountable. One positive I have seen: This school has an excellent music teacher.

As a Resource Parent it is a wonderful school to attend. The Principal, Liz Williams along with her staff work with you so your Resource child can achieve the goals you as a parent have set along with the Teachers. The Resource Staff director Melanie Kamae, is an excellent teacher who cares about her kids. If you are a resource parent, contact Melanie Kamae at Marine View. She is a wealth of knowledge.

They have a Jazz Ensemble group that perfoms at Disneyland and other special places. They also have an Honors program and a chance to sign up for both Algebra 1 and Spanish 1. Lastly they have after school sports such as cross country, basketball, volleyball, and track and field. Along with intermurals during lunch and enrichment.
