Grades, Online Access

STAY ON TOP of STUDENT PROGRESS with Illuminate!  Get online access to grades, homework and attendance information.


To check your student’s progress you will need an access code.We are providing an access code to each contact listed in our information system. You have the same access code for all students enrolled at Malibu High. The system generates an access code for each contact, which means that in most cases each parent has his or her own access code. There are some exceptions. 

Access codes were sent home with students. If you do not get the letter or there is an issue with the access code, please contact Nedra Gray, Cynthia Slawter, the student's counselor, Laurie Morgan or Yvonne Mesterhazy.
