I am currently a senior at Marshall County High School. I have been enrolled in the district since kindergarten and honestly, up until high school, school was an enjoyable atmosphere. They say these are supposed to be "the best four years of your life" but speaking for myself and classmates, it has been the complete opposite here. We are about to graduate and that's the biggest motivation to keep pushing through!

I loved the community feel of Marshall County School system. Everyone knows everyone in the school, so you feel like one big family. Recently, my high school has gone through a tragedy. My high school fell victim to an active shooter. We lost some of our family and others were severely injured. The community came together and showed how strong Marshall County is. There have been significant changes to the school and the atmosphere since I graduated, however, I still believe Marshall County High School is a very competitive academic institution.
Marshall County has a system that is not very helpful for those who aren't a somebody. For most teams and classes you have to have a certain last name or have parents that have something. Like if your dad is a farmer and your mom makes cakes you really can't get any where as far as sports. The system in Marshall is not based off of talent or potential. Its based on if you have money or popularity. Marshall County is one of those close minded school systems that does not any variety, many are frowned on for being different. You will not see very much ethnic diversity at Marshall County because they just get bullied and are not very well accepted.
