Laurens-Marathon Community School District Reviews

3 reviews
Laurens Marathon is a close-knit school full of dedicated students. Unfortunately because of lack of community involvement and a shrinking community all together the school district is forced to merge with a neighbouring school. However, this lead to a sense of pride among the remaining graduating classes in the school. Through the hard work and determination of our school we have allowed ourselves to keep non-sport related activities at our school for the time being and have shown what can really come out of doing what is right to give other students the opportunity to participate in something greater.

I enter my time here. Made many life long friends. Everyday was a new adventure. It was easy to find your place in the school whether it was in music, sports, or art, there was something for everyone. The teachers truly cared about us students as well.
The teachers are great and are always willing to go the extra mile to help out their students! A school that truly feels like a family.
