Marist School Reviews

Marist teachers are the most supportive, well-educated, and devoted that I have ever come across. I have never had a teacher here who didn't constantly strive to support me in my interests and help me develop into a well-rounded adult.
The academics are very rigorous, and the atmosphere is definitely competitive, but students come out the other side more prepared for college. Where Marist really falls flat is in diversity. Racial tensions are high among students, and LGBT+ peers often face slurs and hurtful rhetoric. With that being said, the administration and faculty are passionate about encouraging honest and empathetic discussion about these issues and changing the environment for the better.

Marist prides itself in preparing your child for the future and creates well rounded, intelligent individuals throughout your time there. Although it's had issues in the recent past concerning diversity and inclusion, the administration is working to de-stigmatize topics such as race, sexuality, and gender in the classroom and during assemblies. At times, the Marist community can seem toxic and small minded, but with strong academic counselors and rigorous courses, Marist is a great place to prepare your child for success in the real world.
Marist is a very private, catholic, and rigorous college preparatory school. I attended all 6 years (7-12) and I do appreciate the great education I am getting, the teachers are truly the best in their field, and they care much about their students. However, the student body at Marist is deteriorating due to its ignorant, racist, and naive teenagers who do not want to accept differences and welcome change. Instead, disturbing actions from my peers led me to be ashamed to attend Marist, especially being a minority at that school. It saddens me to know people I surround myself can talk and view me in such a different light. I hope they can improve their student body's attitude to race and being the true, loving catholic schoolkids they claim to be.
