Marksville was one of the best school I attended I met some of my close friends and I met some of the most wonderful and excellent teacher If I had to start all over I would cause high school have taught me so much and how to survive college When I went to school it varied from one type of educational experience to the next. Yet, in the end it was still called high school in all its intent and purpose. The main thing at this time is that one is going from child to young adulthood. It is a time where one begins to see this in thyself and uses it with some wisdom amongst other things. This period is work and play for this group of older teens. A time where you mature in a way that tells of yourself changing to that of the real world and leaving that of home behind. This is a major change for all to go through.

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!
Marksville high school had a few amazing teachers but they were sadly over looked by the school board and administrators. Other teachers really did not care to see us succeed and I feel as though I was not prepared for college in any shape or form. As an alum I would like to see more college readiness programs and for the school board to stop breathing down the necks of teachers that are obviously doing an amazing job and begin to breath down the necks of the ones that don’t even care about the future of their students.
