I would like to see more administration care for the students and more welcoming. The school overall is a great and just small things can be tweaked to make the school nearly perfect. The school is so small so everyone is friends with everyone and rarely a fight occurs. The environment at the school is great, and is a great school overall!

Mardela is a very good small school. If you are looking for a sports-centric school, then this is not the place for you. The lack of a football team allows other activities to thrive, like the band. The Mardela middle and High band is superb, award-winning and frankly amazing under the direction of Mr. Cory Boltz. However, there are few opportunities to try non-traditional or higher-level classes, since the school cannot afford it. Also, some of the teachers are apathetic or just plain rude with their attitudes towards teaching and the students. Thankfully, they are in the minority. Since it is such a tiny school, there is very little diversity in race and sexuality, and some people in the school will not be accepting of difference; however, there are very few bullying cases. Overall it is a good small town school.
I like Mardela because it is a small school. Everybody knows one another, which allows the teachers to have more interaction with the students in a learning environment. This is a great way for students to feel excepted and comfortable at Mardela.
