Marcus Whitman Central School District Reviews
Marcus Whitman is the perfect small school. It is tight knit, everyone knows almost everyone, but it also doesn't have the suffocating feeling that some small schools can have. During 6th grade I was fortunate enough to attend the ECO program. ECO is a "flipped" classroom. They focus more on hands on learning and taking children outside to the outdoors to learn and experience things rather than learn from books and lectures. 6th grade was my favorite year, I meet my long term friends here. 7th and 8th grade were just as good. The teachers are all very personable, catering to your needs for learning no matter what they may be. I was someone who didn't like learning, my middle school teachers taught me to love learning and even be excited for it every day! Marcus Whitman is really a great school if you want teachers who care and students who are kind and caring.
Marcus Whitman is a pretty average school. There are some great teachers that are always willing to help. There are a few AP and Gemini classes that are offered, although there aren't as many class choices available as I wished, granted that MW is a very small school so it's understandable. I also heard they have added a few more science classes which is nice. The clubs and activities are in my opinion, the best thing about Marcus Whitman. There are so many great programs such as field band, drama club, art club, track, just about every sport other than volleyball, and other clubs for whatever other interests a student could have. The heads of these programs are generally very passionate and enthusiastic about their club/activity and as a result the programs are pretty successful, from award winning musicals, a championship winning field band, and many successful sports teams. The cafeteria food is generally pretty eh, but isn't all high school cafeteria food?
The faculty of Marcus Whitman is extremely dedicated and personal. The district is known for its unusual academic success, despite its size. More and more families are choosing this district because of its success rate and the statistics supporting it. Personally, I found that I was well prepared for college and had a strong support system behind me.
