When I was in school there were a lot of leadership opportunities. A few examples include: FCCLA, United Service Day & Committee, NHS, ect. Also, the first year we were in the MOAC, the girls bowling team placed first. I am proud to say I was apart of that team. Go Prexies!

The Marion City School District is not what our neighboring school districts may believe. I am now a senior at Marion Harding, making this my 12th year with the school district. We've recently been honored to have Mr. Stephen Fujii as our new superintendent. Steve was the former Director of College and Career Success but has recently moved up. Mr. Fujii seems to be educated and highly qualified to help lead us. Another improvement to the school district, specifically the high school is the new administration team. Since I first began attending Harding in 2014, we have had a new set of principals. All four principals and our student resource officer are familiar with many of the students, creating a positive, family-like environment in our high school. For them, we are grateful.
Marion City Schools has an excellent academic program. They offer a wide variety of academic classes. There is not much diversity among the student body. Some Teachers go above and beyond to help their students. The safety education and training provided to students and staff has increased significantly over the past few years.
