All of my teachers have been wonderful and very willing to help me. They are personal with every student, they want to help us. They can even tell if we are having a bad day and try to help as much as possible! Here recently, we have had a tragic thing happen to us in our high school. Everyone in the community including teachers, parents, and administrators, have really stepped up to show us support. Our principle let support dogs come and visit us! Our teachers were very patient with us students, and gave us what we needed to thrive in this difficult time.

Our son started Marshall County his Freshman year. His four years at MCHS were great. He was always kind of shy and didn't make friends easily. When he graduated he was a different kid. He excelled in academics, made friends with his peers and teachers alike and was more outgoing! He was ready for his college adventure and is excelling at Western Kentucky University. Marshall County is a school that treats you like family.
Marshall County High School is a pretty good school. For the most part teachers and staff are nice, however there are a few teachers that discriminate. Our classes are ok, but we have not been academically focused since the school shooting. I want to score well on my ACT so I wish we focused more on that. I am hoping next year will be better for our school.

We have several after school activities for students to be involved in. There is something for everyone. I would recommend my school to others.
