Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We have big plans in place to make this year an outstanding year for all of our scholars!


Communication with families is vitally important to us. Please make sure we have your current email address in our system. Email is our primary mode of communication with families and we typically send a weekly email with important information families need to know. If you do not have email and would like to receive these weekly updates, please call the office to let us know and we will mail yours to you!


Please call the Marvista Office at 206-631-4200 with any questions, and refer here for our Weekly Reflection letter. Melissa Pointer, Principal


We look forward to seeing you soon!  

Melissa Pointer, Principal

  • Supporting Immigrant Students

    We recognize that actions taken by the White House, including a new executive order restricting immigration and orders to increase immigration enforcement, are unsettling to many of our families. We want to reiterate our commitment to our students’ safety. We will do everything in our power to keep our students safe at school.
