Marion Community Schools Reviews
“Our diversity is our strength!” Marion is also very strong with giving opportunities for college credit, and I was able to enter college as a sophomore. Other than those things the school is not that great. The school revolves around male sports, whether that be basketball or football. They spend way too much money toward an okay boys basketball team, where that money could go toward other sports(specifically girl sports), the music programs, or even food. They allow students to get by with poor grade and bad behavior just to allow them to compete in these sports. The poverty rate in Marion is very high and the school seems to do nothing to help the students living in poverty. They are just allowed to be picked on and ignored.
I loved how culturally diverse Marion High School was. It made things so much more interesting because no one group of people was really above the rest because there were so many different backgrounds and flavors that came from both all of the students and the teachers. It was also very cool that none of these people felt bounded to the groups that they were already a part of and everyone was always open to meeting new people, and so almost every group tied in with one another somehow. The academics also offered many opportunities for our futures in college in all of the dual credit and advanced placement opportunities being offered.
My overall experience with Marion Community Schools has been nothing less than exemplary. I have been apart of Marion Community Schools for over 12 years and I cannot say one bad thing about this school district. The academics in this school district is incredible. No other school around the district allows its students to graduate with transferable college credits. Marion community schools are known for their outstanding athletics in almost every single sport they have to offer. The amount of clubs and extra curricular activities that Marion Community Schools has to offer is amazing. The teachers and administrators in this community are very involved with their students. This community takes pride in every single one of their students and wants nothing more than to see their bright students strive. Marion Community Schools definitely has a lot of options. I would not want to be apart of such an amazing community other than Marion Community Schools.
