Marksville High School is a safe , fun-friendly , and spirited school . At times students, may struggle trying to keep up grades or maintain a level of excellence but we always willingly to help another one . My experience with Marksville High has been great even though times got tough I still managed to keep up my grades . The only thing I wish would change is the environment inside the building the janitors really don’t clean as much but overall Marksville High is pretty great!

Hello, my name is Alashia Reed and I attend Marksville High School. My experience at Marksville High is excellent everyone is very helpful and well-mannered. Every student at Marksville High have set goals and everyone wants to make a living.
My experience at MHS wasn't pleasant but it was bearable. It's a school that would much rather fund athletics than academics, honestly. A change I would like to see is with bullying. Do not let bullying get so bad that you only realize that it's an issue after something happnes to a student.
