We love the Marion School District. They offer everything our child needs for a quality education, with the teachers and resources to assist with that achievement. We would highly recommend them to others in our area, or to those who are considering a move to our district. The Marion School District really does care about our community and our children.

I had a great 13 years with the Marion School District! I loved how nice, helpful, and encouraging the school is. I always felt safe there and I learned so much. Although, there are some teachers that need to find a better way to connect with the kids.
There are some people who talk negatively about the Marion School District, but most of the time, your school experience is what you put into it. You know...some people see the glass as half full and others see it as half empty. I think I received a great education at Marion. My teachers seemed to love me and wanted to help me when I was struggling. I'm doing pretty well academically and socially in college, so they must have done something right. Were they perfect, absolutely not, but who is?
In addition to academics, I was able to join the golf team at Marion. We even won the state championship in 2014! I would have never been able to have that experience if it were not for my school.
