At Marion, you immediately feel at home. The teachers are kind and amazing at what they do. Now in my senior year looking back, I feel as though I REALLY got an education. At other schools around, teachers haven't put as much effort in and it reflects on the students. I will forever be a patriot at heart. There are so many ways to get involved at Marion as well. There are tons of clubs to enroll in as well as free CLC after school activities. Some things CLC offers include ACT Prep, cooking, tutoring, and so much more! All for free too! I have always felt safe at Marion and never scared when I walk through those doors. One Patriot, one community!

I like the fact that our school gets things done and helps the students, however I would have liked to see much more student involvement. The students were not included as much as we have been in the past. Many of the teachers are amazing though. The faculty at Marion High School genuinely cares about their students, and they help guide them to a bright future!
Marion High School is a small school located in Marion Arkansas. MHS has great academics for its students and they provide great partnership to all. My overall experience at MHS has been very good and fulfilling. I have met amazing friends and teachers who would do anything for their students! I have had th4 chance to be apart of amazing clubs and after school activities which had amazing leadership.
