Cooperative Education

Readers who are not aware of the Marysville Cooperative Education Program will want to know what an exceptional opportunity this is for families in our community. MCEP is an independent and optional program through Marysville School District, housed at Quil Ceda Elementary School for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

MCEP has the highest WASL scores in the district.

Through parent participation, students receive an enriched learning experience that involves enhanced art, science, music and academic curriculum. As a parent with two children at MCEP, I am proud and happy that my kids' individual needs and interests are always addressed with great concern and care. Being housed at Quil Ceda is a great benefit, as the school has fabulous administrators, teachers and staff. Thanks is also due to the Tulalip Tribes for the amazing involvement, cultural education and support it gives our students and school community.

Involved families and community members are what I believe makes this program special. MCEP graduates continue onto middle school as talented, kind and respectful citizens. They also are diverse and creative thinkers who have developed strong bonds with and admiration for their peers, regardless of their differences.

MCEP accepts applicants now for the 2008-2009 school year. For more information, contact Quil Ceda at 360-653-0890.
