I love Mariner high school becuase it provides bountiful opportunities for students to be involved academically and in extracurricular activities. For example, they provide academic programs such as the veterinary program, teaching program, dual enrollment, AP courses, and honors courses. In addition to academics, they offer a variety of extracurricular activities such as sports, about 100 different clubs, and even after school study hours. However, one thing that I would change would be to make school pep rallies last longer and to provide more school spirit opportunities in order to motivate students to be more involved and motivated in school.

Mariner is the type of place where you can call a second home. It is filled with joy and comfort when you get to know the people and the school itself. Diversity has to be something that is number one in that school which makes ethnically people 10 times more comfortable. The only thing that I wish could change is how the admin is preventing a lot of the fun assemblies which is usually what unites the students together. But overall, I love it here!
Mariner High School is a school with its problems, but is always a service to its students. Overall, my teachers have been joyous, helpful, and compassionate to their students, spending many hours a week after school to be available for a student in need and planning engaging lessons. The student body is also a joy. In school activities, such as sporting events, performing arts, and class games, many students come together to support their peers and to have fun. Additionally, Mariner is the only school I know of where there is such a wide range of ethnic representation and educational inclusivity. There are many programs that aim to help underrepresented/underprivileged students, include the disabled, and clubs/organizations that are truly equal opportunity, such as marching band. However, Mariner HS has its faults, namely the possibility of nearby gang/crime activity that resulted in a handful of school lockdowns. In all, Mariner is a great school to attend, despite its flaws.
