Mariner is full of opportunities! Great teachers, good resources for counseling and college/career readiness, students from many walks of life, and lots of clubs you can get into. The administration (and some teachers) can be rude and inconsiderate and the academics lack preparation for AP tests. Overall, it is a pretty good school and my experience here was just okay. Not the best, but not the worst.

Over the past four years, I have had a great experience at Mariner High School. I have enjoyed all my classes and I really appreciate the staff working there. All the teachers are really helpful and they care about their students. They stay after after school and offer help to those who are struggling. They talk to their students and do their best to help them through hard times. The counselors and office staff are great resources. They look out for the students and try their best to create a warm, welcoming environment. We have an awesome student body at Mariner. Our police officer makes sure that we're always safe. We are a family and I can't imagine spending high school anywhere else. The one thing I do wish we had was more money for the music department and a proper concert hall that isn't the cafeteria. The amount of people joining band and the quality of musicians is getting better. We need more instruments in order to compete against other schools.
At Mariner High School, I have seen support like no other school I've been to. At Mariner I have been a cheerleader for four years, managed to get 21 college credits through Dual Enrollment, and have had nothing but a positive experience. The school has many different programs including vet, medical, biomedical, engineering, T.V production, and so many more. Most of these programs end with a certification in that field such as our medical program where students graduate as a CNA. Students here are taught respect with positive repercussions. As an outside school, it's important to keep trash contained. Our outstanding principal, Dr. Michel, has implemented that as long as trash stays inside the cafeteria and not around our school, he would keep activities for us in our courtyard. Student life has improved greatly and I am very pleased that I did not have to switch schools a thousand times and that on the first try, Mariner got it right.
