I have been going to Marion Independent School District since I was in Preschool. I have made many friends and have known everybody since. The teachers at Marion High School have all been great and strive to be fun and amazing. My third grade teacher had seen that i was interested in aviation and asked her friend that is a pilot if he could take me on a discovery flight. I did the discovery flight and knew exactly what career I wanted to pursue in the future. I have always thanked her every time I see her, she is also going to hand me my diploma on graduation day. Marion High school is such an amazing school that learns and grows every single day.

Very small school, everyone knows everyone therefore creating an easy and comfortable environment to grow up in. Good education that allows students to be involved in many activities such as sports and FFA while still getting an excellent education. Not to mention, very competitive in sports and though the FFA, also offers a variety of clubs and organizations.
Marion is a small school in a small town with strong roots of community and support. Being a small school you develop friendships with a diverse group of people, everyone knows everyone. Teachers know the students more personally since it's a small school and we have strong bonds with them and can trust them not only as a educators but also as confidants. Love my small town school!
