I lived in Marysville for about 18 years now. I have enjoyed most of my time here except with dealing with the public school system. The teachers cannot teach, when you want to ask a question to a school official, they'll direct you to someone else and then they will do the same thing! Marysville is always building new housing, there are always new businesses opening so job opportunity is everywhere. Marysville is a nice town, I just wish that they would be able to fix their school district.

There are many parks and trails nearby, but the commercial areas are outdated. There have been some issues with property theft and drug use, but overall many areas within the community seem relatively safe. Housing costs are affordable but the town is farther away from major economic hubs like Seattle or Bellevue. Bond funds were recently invested into a new high school which focuses on education in Engineering, Construction, BioMed, and Entrepreneurship; while a push has also been made to extent more trades internships to student who will not be pursuing post-secondary education. These investments in the future show a dedication to the success of the youth and longevity of the community.
Marysville is a growing city that is full of amiable and hardworking people. I have lived in Marysville for almost my whole life and I can confidently say that this is a safe community that gives off a family friendly environment. I volunteer daily at the Marysville food bank which allowed me to meet so many kind-hearted people that have put much love and effort in this community. One thing that I would love to see a great change in Marysville is to provide more support in school funding. Since this diverse city is increasing in population, the need for educational tools such as textbooks and computers grow along side it. It is crucial that we must provide our children resources that will help improve their academic achievement. With more opportunities, these students will quickly develop dreams and aspirations that can not only leave a positive impact in Marysville, but to the world.
