Marine Science Magnet High School is like no other. The school prepares its students for college courses while engaging students in fun new ways. The school has changed my life and made me think of life in a bigger and brighter perspective. From the wide selection of college classes, nurturing and welcoming environment, this is an incredible school. There is not one aspect about MSMHS that I would change. I have been given many opportunities that wouldn't necessarily be given in a regular high school. Every teacher and other staff members encourage students to go above and beyond. I learned how "Effort Creates Ability" and how having a good growth mindset goes a long way.

Marine Science Magnet High School has prepared me tremendously for my college experience. Like any school, it has it's pros and cons, but the benefits outweigh any negative drawbacks. I've been at the school for four year, since Freshman year, and, like any high school, it took some time to adjust. But, the welcoming culture and community made me feel accepted and I could be anything I wanted to be. Now, as a Senior, I have accomplished so much from this school and would highly recommend any one interested to apply and really consider attending.
This is an amazing school. Both my kids go here and I cannot say enough good things! The teachers are incredibly dedicated and devoted. Everyone feels welcome. The principal could not be any more dedicated to the academic and social success of all of the students. They really prepare the kids for college and life.
