Marathon Central School District Reviews

What I like about Marathon Central School District is the amount of opportunities it gives students to express themselves. There are over fifty clubs and sports groups that students can join that will allow them to enjoy what they love. From track, to drama club, to game club, there truly is a club for every student.
What I would like to see changed is how our the administration goes about certain things. There is a very well written student code of conduct that all students are expected to follow, with specific disciplinary actions that would follow as a result of those expectations not being followed. However; those actions are never taken. Ever.

Marathon Central School is a small town school that definitely has it’s rough spots but the good outshine the bad. The school employees some of the most caring and dedicated teachers I’ve ever seen In my life and the school is always looking to help the community in a way possible. The average class size in Marathon is about 55 and having such a small class creates a world of opportunities for the students. Marathon Central School is a great school to send your children to and I highly recommend this small town school.
Marathon is, without a doubt, a small school district but I am so proud to call myself an alum of Marathon! Because of our small size, Marathon has such a strong sense of community and I never felt like I was just an other face in the crowd. The teachers practically became family and I always knew that they cared not only about my education, but also about who I was and am as a person. I received a wonderful education at Marathon and I am very thankful and blessed for my experience as a Marathon student.
