Marion High School has been good to me. I haven't had any troubles with anyone in the school, such as bullying or related issues. I have become friends with many, younger and older. I have done cross country for three years and track for four, both were good to me. The teachers are very helpful and are willing to help especially if you have a low grade. You can always go to one of the teachers for advice. They are all friendly. There are many clubs you can attend and they are all fun. There isn't much diversity since it is a very small town school. The safety is above standards. The school food is decent enough to eat it but we have this awesome system where upperclassmen can go home for lunch with good grades and on Friday's it is extended. Our seminar is before lunch so for Fridays we use up that time for an extended lunch period. We all kind of get along, yes there is that high school drama but nothing extremely serious.

I enjoyed the small town feel of the school. All the teachers know your name and a lot about you. The teachers and counselors are always willing to help especially with the transition to college. The school is connected to Butler Community College and offers an amazing scholarship that allows high school students to take college courses for dual credit without having to take night classes. There are many sports offered and being such a small town, no one is cut from a sport. There is a good music program both vocal and instrumental with a lot of talent. I like that the school is comfortable and offers a good range of classes. I would change the times certain classes were offered allowing advanced kids to not feel behind in other areas of academics.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Marion High School. The teachers are phenomenal and all have great relationships with all of their students. Not only are the academics great, the extra-curricular activities are always a lot of fun. Anything from playing football to being on math team to being a part of Board Game Club, we have it all.
