Marinette High School is the epicenter of mediocrity. It's not the best of the best, but there are ways it could be worse. We have no water bottle fill-ups, and the unsteady water pressure of the water fountains is a free ticket to a drenched sleeve up to your elbow. The teachers are amazing, though. They are down to earth, funny, and people you could probably actually be friends with. The academics blow, however, because standards are pretty low here. So do our sports. We lose pretty much every game because of the lack of support for our athletes. There's also no diversity- there are maybe 10 people of color throughout the 600+ people at school. This place shows you the harsh reality of a small town and gets you ready for community college, but if you're planning to make it big, prepare do have LOTS of supplementals on top of what you learn and do in class.

Some things that I enjoyed about my High School experience were the friends that I made and the classes that I got to take. It's really easy to make friends at our school because kids and teachers are always super involved with everyone so no one is left out. Also, I really enjoyed the different kinds of classes that were available to take, both online and in the classroom. Some classes that are available include Film Studies, Oral & Interpersonal Communication, Anthropology, etc. Some things that I would like to see changed would be the food that is offered during breakfast and lunch. The portions are way too small and doesn't really taste good either.
My experience at Marinette high school has been pretty good. Some of my favorite things about Marinette High school is how much we have to offer from sports to clubs and classes, Marinette has a system set up with some of our local colleges and they give us the opportunity to earn college credit before we even graduate high school. There is always something going on at the high school weather it's a club meeting or sporting event there's always a large crowd.
