Marlboro County High School offers a variety of academic and athletic experiences. I believe that upon completion of my studies there, I will be more than ready to take on my next level of education. In a small community and the high school that my parents graduated from, there is lots of love that can be found all over the school. From the office staff to the cafeteria staff to the teaching and coaching staff, they are all trying to produce lifelong learners and global leaders. I love my high school!
The teachers actually care and want to really help you achieve your goal to graduate. Some of the teachers are really nice and some are just a little rude. Marlboro county high school is like one big happy family. We help each other out in situations, and we all would love to see each other succeed and graduate.
