Marist School Reviews

I appreciate Marist School's tough curriculum because I know it is preparing me for college, however, I feel as though the expectations and required work can sometimes get out of hand. Teachers sometimes plan tests all around the same day(s), making it nearly impossible to balance school, let alone adding in clubs and sports. In addition, I feel as though a lot that goes on at Marist concerning punishment, who gets on sports teams, etc. can be very political/based on the parents' legacy or influence. Lastly, a lot of the students at Marist I have found to be extremely entitled, out-of-control, and cliquey. My self-confidence was put at an all time low last year because of the students themselves who tend to be extremely cliquey and two-faced/fake. I do have a few best friends who I absolutely don't know where I would be without and I do love attending sports practice along with football games, but overall, Marist has a long way to go on their so-called "inclusiveness."

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.
