Marietta City Schools (MCS) is a Charter System that serves more than 8,900 students at one PreK Early Learning Center, eight elementary choice schools, one sixth grade academy, one middle school, and one high school. MCS is the first International Baccalaureate (IB) World School District in Georgia. As an IB World School District, MCS offers the optional IB Primary Years Programme for grades K-5, IB Middle Years Programme for all students in grades 6-10, and the IB Diploma Programme as an option for high school students in grades 11-12. Additionally, Marietta High School offers multiple industry-certified IB Career-related Programmes (CP), a framework of international education that incorporates the vision and educational principles of IB into career-related learning.
The annual outreach event, Our First Steps, MCS staff welcome families and hand out important back to school information. Staff meet families where they are on Saturday mornings—such as the grocery store, laundromat, local parks, neighborhood pools, and the Marietta Square.
Students receive a welcome on the first day of school from Dr. Grant Rivera, Superintendent of Marietta City Schools.
