Marianas High School is a public high school located on Saipan in the United States Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). It is one of five high schools operated by the CNMI Public School System, and the largest of three public high schools serving the island of Saipan. Built in 1969, the school is the oldest of the five high schools on Saipan.

In June 2011, as a result of years of effort, Marianas High School proudly announced it achieved above average scores on 5 of the 8 Stanford Achievement Test Series (SAT 10). The overall average score puts MHS in the 51st percentile. This was the first time a CNMI high school has outperformed the national average. [1] In 2013, five MHS students were named AP Scholars and two were named Scholars with Honors by the CollegeBoard. In addition, three MHS students were named Gates Scholars in recognition of their outstanding academic performance. Finally, in 2013, the MHS STEM team won a National Championship for its unmanned search and rescue plane, the first national championship ever won by a US territory. Then again in late 2015, the MHS STEM team won another National Championship led by fellow instructor Mr. Raulerson.
