I enjoyed my experience at Marlboro County High School. The guidance counselors were very helpful and informative about different scholarships available for college. They also gave me the opportunity to be a dual enrollment student with Northeastern Technical College to help me get a headstart on getting ahead in college while saving money.

Marlboro County High School is a relatively small school that would be very more successful if the staff was open to change. Things were the same or worst compared to when I started and graduated. We had a new principal every year because "the job wasn't being taken care of." I feel like they fail to realize seeing a positive change is going to take time. The best principal isn't going to get the school above average standards in one year. They need new ideas and minds leading the students. The opportunities are there but the students need better guidance. Being in college this first year showed me how much I really missed out on at Marlboro. I knew we weren't privileged as other schools, but I had no idea it was as bad as it really is,
Attending this school for four years has taught me a lot. It taught me the meaning of family and the meaning of hard work. Even though other people think this school is bad or "dangerous", I can personally say that i'm so happy my four years was spent here.
