With many great STEM and early learning programs Marietta City Schools has great promise as a system if only they could get out from under the thumb of local politics and system greed. With all of their technical training being available, one would think they have every student's best at heart, however the lust for funding inside the High School's IB program has led many astray and has actually cut 90 percent of the AP classes out that would have better benefited the students.

The teachers are caring and the expectation to succeed is high. The classes are not easy, but that is good because those challenges help us grow as students. My favorite part of MHS is the breakfast cart because it provides snacks even after breakfast so kids don't go hungry throughout the day as often. If I could change anything it would be the students' enthusiasm to learn, because it is a little low, and with such great opportunities we should have no excuse.
My experience at Marietta High school was excellent in terms of academics and extracurricular opportunities. The IB program at this school provides a rigorous curriculum for students who plan to pursue undergraduate and/or doctoral degrees. Students who display the qualities of Marietta High School P.R.I.D.E. (Prepared, Respectful, Intentional, Diligent, and Engaged) are most definitely prepared for college and life after high school. In fact, several students from our school have matriculated into Yale University, GeorgiaTech, Duke University, MIT, and other prestigious institutions. Marietta High School's "Student Success Center" offers to tutor in core classes, advisory in college applications, scholarship opportunities, help on essays, printing, and much more. The teachers are extremely passionate about their students and invest a lot of time and effort into making sure students receive a high-quality education and develop essential skills that will benefit them later in life.
