Welcome to Marcos de Niza Academics
Thank you for making Marcos de Niza High School your school of choice. Below, you will find important information from the Academics Office.
Marcos de Niza has implemented a schedule that offers a teacher conference hour. This conference hour provides each student with the opportunity for academic support from 7:20 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. five days a week from any teacher on campus. You will find that Marcos provides a wide array of curricular opportunities on campus and through the TUHSD Extended Learning Office. This variety of course offerings and modalities meets the needs of all students. Some of these offerings include: Advanced Placement (AP) courses, dual enrollment courses through Arizona State University and the Maricopa County Community Colleges, honors courses, and Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses at MdN, as well as vocational courses offered through the East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT).
Our attendance policies and code of conduct (in accordance with policies of Tempe Union High School District) ensure an equitable and safe learning environment so that all students can meet the TUHSD graduation requirements.
Marcos de Niza's Site Council has mandated a closed campus during the lunch hour for freshmen and sophomores. Juniors and seniors must submit an application and meet an approved set of criteria in order to leave the campus during the lunch period.
We encourage that both students and parents/guardians get involved and be active on campus. You can visit our web pages for a calendar of activities and athletic events as well as how to get involved in the Padre Booster Club on campus. You may also wish to consult our page of frequently asked questions.
Lastly, please take a moment each week to look at your student's grades online. You can access online grades from the school website. This valuable tool will assist you in tracking how your child is making progress. Always feel free to contact our office regarding any questions, concerns, or news.
