Well organized, strong teachers, technology used in the classrooms, lots of lunch-time clubs, student council, sports teams and afterschool program run by the YMCA. The school counselors are nice and their are lots of adults walking around the school. My son is in 6th Grade and I feel he is going to be well prepared for high school.

Ms Ujiie is doing an excellent job running the counseling office. I heard from a mom at a much bigger (and supposedly more desirable middle school) that she had given up trying to reach her counselor since they never, ever return calls. That is not the case at Marina. The counselors know every single student and they are quick to deal with parent concerns and handle kid issues. This is a five star review for the Ms Ujiie and the counseling office.

Teacher effectiveness: Effective

The school has many new teachers and they are young, enthusiastic and super smart. The teachers are really making a difference.

Marina Middle School
Amount of homework: Just right

Most students have afternoon activities (music, dance, sports, etc) and the school gives the correct amount of homework to allow kids to still participate in after-school activities.

Develops grit: Agree

Posted September 29, 2015

Yes. Students are encouraged to work hard and keep at it to find their success.


Marina Middle School
Develops respect: Agree

Posted September 29, 2015

Yes. Respect is very much part of the school program taught in the weekly Advisory Class.

Marina Middle School
Develops empathy: Agree

Posted September 29, 2015
- a parent
Yes. The weekly Advisory Class promotes the emotional well being of each student. Counselors work hard to help kids understand how their behavior might have hurt another person and how they can fix the problem.

School has a weekly Advisory Class that helps develop students' social and emotion responses. This weekly class (with only 22 kids per teacher) really tries to help middle school student understand how to be kind and how to prepare for high school.

I don't recommend this school for your child. This school hire a teacher with no experience at teaching and Do not know how to control the students in class. The students just takes over and the teacher is not able to teach. My daughter had a very disappointing 7th grade 2014-2015. As a parent I asked to have my daughter to be remove from that class but they did not allow it. The principal doesn't care also when a student has a problem and she just ignores it. My daughter always mark late if she just walked in just on time after the bell rings which is not very fair. Some teachers do care.

Marina Middle School
Amount of homework: Not enough

Posted July 14, 2015

My daughter comes home with no homework. Teachers don't even check homework that's why students don't bothered to do it.
