Open Quote Mariner is a different school than it was years ago. The Admin staff have clearly made a difference. They have a wonderful active PTO. Teachers and staff are happy and it shows. The school looks great with positive saying posted all around the school. They encourage self respect by treating the students with self respect. The building itself feels comfortable and promotes a learning environment. My son in now in eighth grade. After spending all three years in Mariner Middle I can say I am completely happy with his whole experience. I am confident that he is ready for High School. I would recommend Mariner over Beacon anytime. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
