What I like about Maryvale High School is that they have very educated teachers who will help you, especially if you are a dedicated student-or looking to be one! There are teachers who go beyond their way to help you work on your essays, allow you to use their computers if you have online work, help you prepare for college admissions tests, help you achieve the grades you desire, and even help you apply to jobs and colleges! I personally have had amazing teachers who I am beyond grateful to. They motivate me and reassure me in my educational voyages. However, maybe the school could improve its facilities(restrooms!) and update their laptops to newer versions that work more adequately. Also we should hold our pep rallies indoors because the Phoenix heat can really give you a headache. Nevertheless, my overall experience at Maryvale has been grand and I can't wait to see what senior year brings me!

So far, my experience with attending Maryvale High School has been great. The teachers are very kind and welcoming. This is my first year at this school and it was so different from what I expected. All my teachers are so helpful which makes me feel so welcomed there as a new student. The whole staff has been working really hard to make sure we graduate by making sure we are getting prepared to begin our path in real life. Maryvale has been good to me and I thank everyone for their hard work!
Maryvale High School is in the midst of a Mexican community. Our school is proud of the mexican culture and very much incorporates it through clubs and activities enjoyed by students, staff, and parents. I have enrolled in Advanced Placement courses which were very rewarding, but I believe that we can expand the subjects in order for a student to challenge themselves in a subject of interest. The football games are exciting and the students do their very best to represent the school. The countless opportunities Maryvale provides is overwhelming and important for the success of their students.
