I have attended Marion County High School for four consecutive years. As a senior looking back on all of my experiences, I find that Marion County High School is an okay place to attend compared to others around our area. While the mathematics teaching is lacking, the English classes truly make up for it and are the best part of this school. The English teachers try to make learning fun, especially to the students who don't like reading or writing at all. To add onto that statement, most of the teachers truly put in the effort to make learning at leas rbearable for students. This school is also working on our Arts & Humanities portion of the school. When I first attended, the chorus class they offered was only a half year course and didn't count as the credits needed to graduate. Now chorus is a full year course. Marion County High School still has a bit of a way to go before I can give this school a 4 out of 5 star rating, but it is definitely on it's way to being a great school.

I’ve always been a student with Marion county public schools. I love my school and they are always getting me college and career ready. They always provide me with the life skills I am going to need. The teachers are so very kind and they take our every day obstacles into consideration. I’m so thankful for my school!
I liked that the school was a close knit community. During hard times, we could usually be there for each other. I loved the support for sports, especially since I played volleyball freshman through senior year. I disliked the criteria taught in some classes because it was not beneficial at all. I think more life skills would be helpful. Many teachers did not seem to care, which is discouraging. I was considered "College and Career Ready" before graduating due to my GPA and ACT score, but I cannot say this school is the reason I am doing well here at EKU.
