The traditions of Marietta High School make it different than any other. The motto of “Be Somebody” is a tradition that guides students, teachers, and the community. Northcutt Stadium houses a bell that can be heard ringing at the conclusion of every winning game. We received national attention for our unique senior class tradition of ‘rolling of the school’ approved by our leadership. And just this week, USA Today recognized our superintendent for his humanitarian gesture of donating his $10,000 bonus to my senior class to use for college application fees. I am proud to be a Marietta Blue Devil!

The traditions of Marietta High School make it different than any other. The motto of “Be Somebody” is a tradition that guides students, teachers, and the community. Northcutt Stadium has a bell that rings after every winning game. We received national attention for our unique senior class tradition of ‘rolling of the school’ approved by our leadership. And just a couple weeks ago, USA Today recognized our superintendent for his humanitarian gesture of donating his $10,000 bonus to my senior class to use for college application fees. Senior week was a blast. Our football team is #1 in the state of GA. Last Night ESPNU broadcasted our winning game of 21-17! I am proud to be a Marietta Blue Devil!
I love Marietta High School's tradition and family origin. The campus is stunning and they always make sure kids have a place to hangout after school hours and access academic resources outside of the classroom. One thing they need to work on is hiring good quality teachers, most of our history teachers are AWESOME everyone else is pretty standard and most of the math teachers are sub-par. The math teacher I received this year for IB Calc didn't really teach us she is more focused on self learning like handing out tasks and assigning homework rather than going in front of the class and working through problems and answering questions, this has been extremely frustrating with such challenging content. Another thing I love about MHS is that they offer work based learning courses which allows me to work or intern somewhere during the school day and earn elective course credit, they also have very good career pathways for instance I'm in the healthcare science pathway and LOVE IT!
