Marion Community Unit School District No. 2 Reviews

I love how the Marion school district has everything. First off, it has good teachers that truly care about the students and their well-being. They want to see these students go off to college and get a great education. The teachers do whatever it takes. The types of classes offered are also top of the line, and they truly get you ready for college. To get a good learning experience you need good facilities, and Marion High School goes above and beyond. They have some of the best facilities in the whole state of Illinois. If there was one thing I wish would have changed, it would be the school spirit. I felt that sometimes it lacked, but overall we have a great school where students get a wonderful experience.

Great classes and teachers, but its all about sports. Great school for athletes, or for someone wanting to join the military.
Marion is a great community with clean schools and caring teachers. Marion strives to give students everything they need to be successful.
