My experience at Marriotts Ridge High School has been nothing short of amazing! As a school that values academic rigor, me and my fellow students have always learned a lot every day. Nearly every teacher on the staff is well liked by most students, allowing for students to perform well in their courses. Many teachers are devoted to helping the students excel in their courses, especially honors and AP courses. In addition to a high focus on academics, MRHS students are very involved in extracurricular activities such as FBLA, Model UN, Science Olympiad, and more. MRHS is also very involved in sports. The MRHS Golf Team has won the State Championship multiple times, and many of our other sports teams have won local and regional championships. Overall, my experience at Marriotts Ridge High School has been rewarding, and I'm thankful for everything that the school has offered me in succeeding academically.

MRHS is a really great school all-around. I feel safe whenever I'm in the building. And there all sorts of clubs that are definitely gonna match anyone's interest. In fact, Marriotts ridge is also known for having so many clubs. The teachers are also very good as they help us out if we are falling behind. All you gotta do is ask for help. I had Ms. Baek as my counselor, and she was amazing! Even the administrators look out for you. Overall, it is a pretty good school.
Marriotts Ridge was the second high school I transferred to after being sexually harassed and bullied. My grades were spiraling and I was losing academic hope. When I transferred, not only did my mental health improve, but my grades surpassed my expectations. Marriotts Ridge gave me hope by preparing me academically for college with rigorous courses that pushed my limits and challenged my way of thinking. The teachers surpassed motivated. Dedicating themselves to better off the next generation with knowledge and the ability to exchange ideas upon topics and theories. Students within my classes had the luxury to see full perspectives of others, information etc which allowed them to cultivate their own opinion/ perspective without ignorance.
