“ʔi, čəxʷ syaʔyaʔ” means “hello friend” in the Lushootseed language. Did you know that the Marysville School District serves more than 1,200 Native American/Alaskan Native students? Our Native American student population primarily consists of Tulalip Tribal citizens with other tribal students representing approximately 79 federally recognized Tribal Nations. Our Indigenous Education Program is designed to assist Native American/Alaskan Native students in grades K-12. Our role is to provide a safe place for Indigenous students to learn and grow while honoring their rich cultural heritage. We are proud partners with the Tulalip Tribes ensuring our Native students are honored and well supported.
