I enjoyed it, I wish they took the education more serious though. They focus more on our dress code than our education. Our education is more important than anything!

My 4 years at Lake Marion were very learningful and achieving. I learned many things thanks to the wonderful teachers there preparing us for college. The atmosphere at Lake Marion was very astonishing. The kids are respectful and it's very diversed. There are so many clubs/organizations that can help you later in life. You develop friendships that'll last a lifetime. One thing I would change about this school is that they should have more career specialized classes for future students so they can have more opportunities. Overall, Lake Marion High School is a very great school and I recommend it as the best school in the state of South Carolina.
My experience with Lake Marion was good and bad. It’s a learning experience with teachers , students & administrators. The school sometimes is very poor with our learning environment because we are not getting as much knowledge as we should. They should change that before the younger kids of the world today reach high school. I would change a lot about the school starting with teachers. Teachers that have 1 on 1 & better learning pace for kids would be so much better. Also change the administration’s because they rather see kids out of school than inside of school. Everyone deserves a good change with school because the future starts with us !
