My experience at John Marshall High School was decent at best. The academic side of John Marshall is alright if you stick to all honors and AP classes. They also have their "normal" classes which to be quite frank, are filled with teachers that hate their jobs and care little about their students. The classes have absolute bare minimum requirements to pass them and it makes the students so lazy they actually begin to not complete the little work they are given.

What makes John Marshall High School such a great school is the faculty and staff: the teachers prepare you for the next step of your life as best they can, the staff is always fun and energetic, and the administration works hard to keep the school running in an orderly and safe fashion. It is still a work in progress, but John Marshall provides students with many opportunities. If there was one thing I had to change, however, it would be the involvement of the counselors in preparation for college in terms of helping with scholarships and such.
John Marshall High School is truly a great school, with hardworking faculty and a large student body. JMHS, almost nearing 60 years since it was first built, looks brand new with renovations which finished last year. In my 3 years of being at John Marshall, we have had to go through construction in the entire school, and a new faculty. However, our student body was able to adapt to these changes, and I believe John Marshall is one of the best in West Virginia.
