I loved Marion High School! It is made up of a very tight-knit, intimate community with exceptional school spirit and amazing teachers and administrators who's primary mission is to see to it that all students succeed. Though I wish the population was more diverse, I was still satisfied with my time at MHS.

I have enjoyed several aspects of growing up in a small town, but it has its downsides. In a town as small as marion, people get complacent, and when I say people, I mean teachers and coaches. Favorites are picked early on and if you're not one of them, you're screwed. Teachers know that they can get away with the bare minimum, and so that's what they do.
Marion ISD is a small school and original to the roots. Most of the kids have bee there since kindergarten till the end of graduation and just like their parents they stay living there. It was an okay school but I went here for 6 years and never felt like I fit in because the people who lived their whole lives here weren't open-minded at all. A lot can be changed, they should take academics more serious and give kids with other talents besides sports a chance to flourish. I really wish they had more clubs and the clubs be interactive and actually do meaningful things.
