Marysville Early College High School

The world no longer cares about what you know; the world cares about what you can do with what you know.—Tony Wagner

Marysville ECHS is a school of choice high school for MEVSD that opened in August 2014. It was created through a partnership with Marysville Schools, Columbus State Community College, Honda, Ohio Hi Point and Union County Chamber of Commerce. It is funded through Ohio’s Straight A Fund with the intention of providing students with a STEM focused, inquiry based curriculum based on real world experiences. 

What is STEM? 

The acronym is Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, but it is much more than that. STEM is a unique approach that fosters creativity and innovative thinking in all students. STEM schools are characterized by:

·         Personalized Learning

·         Rigorous Learning

·         Problem-Based Learning

·         Career Pathways

·         School and Community Belonging

What is Early College? 

Early college high school is a bold approach, based on the principle that academic rigor, combined with the opportunity to save time and money, is a powerful motivator for students to work hard and meet serious intellectual challenges. Early college high schools blend high school and college in a rigorous yet supportive program, compressing the time it takes to complete a high school diploma and the first two years of college. At Marysville ECHS students have the potential to earn between 19-60 credits from Columbus State Community College by the time they graduate. 60 credits is the equivalent of an Associate Degree.

 

What Makes Marysville ECHS Unique?

ü Instruction: We use inquiry-based instruction. Our students find answers instead of memorizing them and will develop life-long skills for problem solving and thinking critically.

ü Our habits of mind: In and out of our classrooms we emphasize and model flexibility,

outside the box thinking, resilience, collaboration, communication and self-sufficiency.

ü Design: We use an integrated design model at ECHS. Like engineers, artists, and scientists our students use a design process which is: Investigate, Plan, Create and Communicate.

ü Mastery Learning: Grades reflect mastery of skills and standards. Students have multiple opportunities to demonstrate mastery of required coursework and must have an 80% to earn a course credit.

ü Internships: Internships, mentorships and capstone projects are being planned so that upon graduation students will not only have earned college credits but have extended their learning beyond the school walls.

 

Who Should Attend?

Any 8th grade student from Marysville that is eligible for promotion to the ninth grade and is interested and excited about the opportunity to attend ECHS. Students should enjoy math and science courses, and want to be challenged by the inquiry-based rigorous coursework. Students who have proved to be most successful this year at ECHS are willing to work hard, manage their own responsibilities and time, and seek help when they need it.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Can students participate in sports? Yes. Our students participate in all extracurricular activities.

 Can students participate in band and choir?   Yes. Students are shuttled to MHS for those courses.

 Is there a cost to attend Marysville ECHS? No. As we are a public high school in the Marysville district there is no cost to attend. There are fees associated with some courses just like those found in other schools throughout the district. Under the new College Credit Plus legislation there is no cost for dual enrollment college courses.

 Can students take AP courses and receive the pre-requisites for an honors diploma? Yes.

 Are the college credits earned from Columbus State Community College transferable? Credits earned are transferable to any state university in Ohio.
