Marana Unified School District Reviews

Some things I love is that we are a very close school, everybody knows everybody. We all go to school events and participate in school spirit weeks, we are a very academically successful school. Teachers are always willing to help anyway that they can. We have several opportunities for students to get caught up with work and have several programs to help with that. Also we are a very athletic school, we always have lots of people who play sports and we play to win. During the season we have fundraisers and always reach out goals. Recently this last school year our school had made several improvements to the campus, we got new desks and chairs for each class, we extended the campus and added some new buildings to the school, and finically we added some color to the gates around the school.

I have been in the Marana Unified School District most of my life, for grades 1 through 5 then grades 9 through 12. For grades 6 through 8 I was in a different district, and I wanted to come back to the MUSD because I missed the teachers that genuinely cared about students and wanted them to succeed. The MUSD also offered more classes that directly linked to career paths after high school, instead of simple college prep, such as Career and Technical Elective classes that gives students experience for technical jobs before graduation. Overall, the MUSD succeeds at the cores of what schools should be doing: fostering knowledge and experience for life-long careers.
This was an excellent environment to grow up in. Kindness is definitely a major priority on the campuses, and I am so glad to have grown up here (specifically to have been enrolled in Marana High School). Majority of teachers are engaged and determined in having you learn. Help is never a question, all teachers have help hours that most likely work with your schedule. As a student athlete with two jobs and in a JTED Dental Assisting program, my days were packed. But these teachers made it that much easier to achieve my GPA (4.025 weighted, 3.75 unweighted) with everything else I have going on. I couldn't have done it without their flexibility and help!
