Maroa- Forsyth High School is a small town school, with the same diversity as a small town in rural America; however, the educators and staff are top tier! The classes sizes are small which allows teachers to give very individualized attention. Unfortunately sports are at the center of the school culture, so those who do not have the best reputation. Being as the school is located in a small town it is hard to regain a good reputation.

I transferred to Maroa-Forsyth High School after going to a private school. I was amazed by how welcoming the faculty and student body were. There are many different opportunities for learning, including a wide range of various science and math classes. The school also has a great FFA chapter. As well as its strive for excellence with academics, the school has reputable sports teams which include the football, softball, baseball, and volleyball team. I would highly recommend Maroa-Forsyth High School.
So far, Maroa Forsyth has been a great environment with great curriculum and athletics! Most of the teachers are amazing but there are a select few who don't seem like they enjoy teaching! Wonderful sports teams! Music program needs more focus and the cafeteria food could be a lot better. But overall a great school.
