Here are most of the schools which were attended by Jack Marvin.


  • California State University Long Beach

    California State University

    I was somewhat surprised when I was accepted into the same film program as Steven Spielberg. He's always been a tremendous inspiration to me. The campus of California State University Long Beach is absolutely amazing as is the weather.
  • Academy of Art University

    Academy of Art University

    Over the summer I was invited to San Francisco to attend courses in film and media production at the Academy of Art University. It was an amazing experience that I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in.
  • Orange Coast College

    Orange Coast College

    After many years and several careers, my Sister convinced me to go back to school with her. It seemed like it was worth doing, so off we went. We met some great people, several I've been friends with for years.
  • Orange County Regional Occupational Center

    Orange County Regional Occupational Center

    I returned to California yet again. This time I was armed with a small computer workstation and some pirated CAD software that I wanted to learn how to use.
  • Saddleback College

    Saddleback College

    First person in my family to attend a college. Saddleback was very nice and rated as one of the best schools in the country. I was glad to be back in California once again. I took all of the business classes and graphic design classes they had to offer.
  • United Airlines Apollo Training Center

    United Airlines Apollo Training Center

    I was already a hot-shot travel agent when I was sent to a two week course at the United Airlines Apollo Training Center. The agency I was to work at required agents to be registered so they paid for the class and the time off from work. I became an official travel agent (IATA).
  • Washington High School

    Washington High School

    I only went to Washington High School for one class at night. I needed the missing class to graduate. Interestingly, when they were calling attendance on the first night, I heard a name that sounded familiar. We didn't immediately recognize each other but it was Pogo, my best friend from third grade.
  • Cortez High School

    Cortez High School

    This is the school I would have gone to from the start. It was a half-mile from my childhood home. I left my graduating class at the semester break two classes short of graduating. The rest of that year I worked a job and lived with a girl.
  • Alhambra High School

    Alhambra High School (again)

    When I came back to Alhambra High School, I was the returning hero. I had a bit of legend status as the guy who moved off to faraway dreamland and got to attend school there with all the rich kids and Hollywood models.
  • El Toro High School

    El Toro High School

    It seemed like a good opportunity to move to California and live in wonderland for awhile. My older brother had just been there and said it was a good experience. So, I moved to California to live with Uncle and Grandmother.
  • Alhambra High School

    Alhambra High School

    I switched schools when I went to live with my Dad and Stepmom. I was instantly accepted into the drama program and given my choice of positions since I was one of the few thespians and had experience running large crews. It was a lot of fun.
  • Arizona State University

    Arizona State University

    Because of my experience as the lighting director for several large productions, I was invited to attend a special summer program at ASU. We stayed in the dorms, ate at the student U, and attended classes.
  • Moon Valley High School

    Moon Valley High School

    All of my friends from jr. high were going to attend nearby Moon Valley High School. For me to get a "variance" to go there instead of the school whose district I was in, there were only two options: Take Latin or join ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps).
  • Cholla Elementary School

    Cholla Junior High School

    My parents couldn't afford our new house so we moved back to the old neighborhood and old school. There were some new kids and some of the old kids were gone, but mostly it was the old gang back together again.
  • Northern Arizona University

    Northern Arizona University

    As part of a special program, I was selected to attend a two-week summer leadership camp at NAU. It was up in the forest where it was cool. We stayed in the dormitories with a roommate.
