Amazing school is all I can say! The staff is loving and dedicated while the students are courteous and try their best! Academics is a priority here and that's why this school thrives. Best principal in CUSD!

I work for the CTA/NEA. Both of my kids went to Marco and this is the worst school that I've ever dealt with. It was so bad that we moved to Missouri to get away from it after having raised our kids in SJC. They were continuously beaten by the incorrigible children and the staff could care less. After ...  Read more

It is an OK school. Our kids made lots of friends and like it in there. This school is very diverse and it has its pluses and minuses. It definitely takes a toll on education. Many kids end up in accelerated classes or are accelerated students, however they still can end up in class that consists of ...  Read more

Because I am a retired high school math teacher, I know what I am saying when I say that Marco provides an excellent education for its students.

Not a good experience ...  Read more

My 6th and 8th grade children got into the GATE program at Marco. Before at Irvine Unified, they tested well, but not well enough to place into GATE. The advanced programs make a big difference in the quality of their education, and so I'm for Marco. My son and daughter, esp., have a lot of friends; ...  Read more

After reading a few reviews I almost feel sorry for the parents who really do not know the true Marco Forster School... Yes it is a middle school and yes it has the best of the best teachers, staff and education that anyone could ever want for their child. There has never been a school that I visited ...  Read more

I would not recommend sending your student here if you want them worked academically. Too much emphasis on ESL and the campus is dirty and the behavior of some of the students is incorregible. This is your child's every day life at this school, really consider other alternatives if you want your child ...  Read more
