Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts Reviews

I loved my experience at MCAA! It is such a warm and open environment, and the teaching staff were amazing. I learned a lot attending there, and I was given many different opportunities to explore my artistic talents and excel academically. The one complaint I have would be that there are not quite enough staff to fill the many needs of the school. On various occasions I did the work that a fully certified teacher should have done, including teaching and producing an Intro Drama production.

Attending Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts has been a fun and positive experience. This school is very open to everyone’s sexual orientations, as well as the rest of the lgbtq+ community. This school is very caring and accommodating to everyone’s needs. However, aside from the school environment, this school could improve on acknowledging other art departments. Since Marysville Charter doesn’t have any sports, this school mainly focuses on the dance and drama departments. So, the painting and drawing students are often not displayed or acknowledged.
There are many clubs and activities to chose from at Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts. We have art club, poetry club, athletic club, thespian club, Spanish club, excel club, SWAT (Students Who Are There) team, student government, and so much more! Some clubs are active all year long, and some clubs are only active in the beginning of the year. In my opinion, the fun and most popular options are athletic club, excel club, SWAT, and student government. I am a part of all those clubs and groups. The teachers are very supportive of the extracurriculars.
