Marysville Early College High School is a school of choice for high school students who attend the Marysville Exempted Village School District. Opening with a freshman class in 2014, the school is designed as a challenging, student centered, inquiry based environment that exposes the interdependence of curriculum and relevance to the real world.

Our STEM Early College High School is partnered with Honda of America, Columbus State Community College, Union County Chamber of Commerce, Ohio Hi-Point and EDworks. With our partners we have developed a curriculum that is intellectually challenging and academically rigorous, which is provided in a supportive, personalized environment. MECHS students will have the opportunity to earn college credit and industry credentials and certification while completing high school. Students choose one of four pathway options at the Marysville ECHS:

Advanced Manufacturing: This pathway is designed for students who are interested in careers in manufacturing including robotics, engineering, design, welding and pneumatics.

Information Technology: This pathway is designed for students who are interested in careers in technology including networking, security, support, and multi-media.

Health Science Pathway: This pathway is designed for students who are interested in careers in the medical profession including medical assisting, exercise science, EMT and medical coding.

Math Science Focus: This experience is designed for students with strong interests or abilities in Math and Science and who are looking for a problem and inquiry based instructional approach.

Throughout their coursework, students are pushed to higher levels of understanding through the lens of economic and entrepreneurial literacy and global awareness. What distinguishes our students is the preparation they receive for a complex, and changing world. Learning by doing develops skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration. We endeavor to graduate self-directed students with the initiative to be leaders in their fields with a sense of civic responsibility; prepared to contribute to their community.
