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There are many parks and trails nearby, but the commercial areas are outdated.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.
I moved from Everett to Marysville in 2010 and since then I have really started to like the city. My school experience in Marysville didn't really start until Middle School and I went to Totem Middle School. My experience there was okay even though it was a pretty old school. For high school, I attended Marysville Getchell and my experience there was pretty great. I really enjoyed my time there, made lots of friends and had many great teachers. The school was also nice and architecturally beautiful since I had attended it in the years that it was just newly opened. I also live in a neighborhood that was near the school as well as near a 24 hour Walmart. So I live in an area of connivence. Overall, I think Marysville is a nice city to live in. I've also met the mayor once, he's a really great guy.
