The city's original school system was the Marysville School District, which hosts the second-largest high school in the state. The other school systems are Lake Stevens School District with 11 schools, Lakewood School District with 2,500 students in five schools, and Arlington School District, which enrolls nearly 6,000 students in 10 schools. Within 40 miles of Marysville, 20 colleges, universities and trade schools can be found, including Everett Community College in Snohomish County. Other institutions nearby include the well-known Seattle Pacific University, Northwest University and University of Washington at Bothell.
