Marist is a great school. I am thankful for all the opportunities I have had to grow as a student! The teachers are great and really want to see their students succeed. It is a competitive environment, but everybody is willing to support each other.

I admire the way Marist prepares their students for college. It gets them prepared for the next steps in their life. However, the atmosphere promotes a community of stress and competition. Everyone is in a continuous race to be the smartest or the most stressed out. I tend to have the most fun during football games or electives. AP Art History is one of my favorite classes because it is an elective as well as an AP class. I get a stellar curriculum and have a genuine time all in one class period. I appreciate Marist, but there are some items that need work.
I started Marist as a freshman (you can start in 7th grade), so my experience was different than most of the other students. Still, everyone was open and welcoming, the teachers are spectacular, and it's a great environment. The subjects constantly test you on your academic rigor and Marist makes you work very hard, but it's worth it
