Marriotts Ridge High School Reviews

All Categories
There are so many clubs here! I am a part of about 7 clubs here, and I am actively involved in all of them. There is at least one club for everyone, and the level of commitment varies, so for people that want to really get involved, there are some clubs that fit them, and for students that are more comfortable with being less involved, there are clubs for them, but even within each club there are positions such as President that allow a student to be more involved. Administration supports most clubs, but I feel that many clubs, even though they have achieved just as much or even more, are not mentioned as much as sports and music/arts accomplishments. Different clubs take place at different times and different days. Some clubs are: Robotics, Future Business Leaders of America, Student Government Association, Class Council, Book Club, She++ Programming, Video Game Club, Gender Equality Club, Table Tennis, and many many more!
Review Marriotts Ridge High School
Although I have only been attending Marriotts Ridge High School for less than two months, I have seen a lot. Before my class and I even began school there, The Student Government Association's Executive Board made sure that the transition from middle school to high school was as smooth as possible. In middle school, I was only in classes with people in my grade, whereas now, in high school, I have classes with fellow freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Despite the fact that many of us are of different ages and hail from different backgrounds, I have formed close friendships with them, especially my soccer teammates. Since soccer preseason began before school in August, I was able to form connections with people that would carry me into the school year. Although the season is now over, I still remain close friends with many of them. Overall, I feel that the beginning of my high school years has been a success.
Athletics are popular but only a few teams (soccer) were very successful in the region while I attended. The arts thrive the most at this school, with many students splitting their time between sports, dance, choir, chamber choir, madrigals, band or jazz band, and participating in school plays/musicals either directly as actors, dancers, in the background as stage crew and ushers, or even writing Jukebox, an original show the school used to do every year (before the previous theatre teacher developed cancer). Many clubs are available, from chess to languages to sports, but they're often disorganized when student-run.
