Marsh Valley High School Reviews

My experience with the educators and staff at Marsh Valley High School was great. The classroom sizes were small which allowed one on one communication between teachers and students and cultivated a comfortable learning environment. Throughout my time there, the school district did a great job of hiring new staff members that were interested in the education of the students and in helping them achieve their goals. While attending, I had the opportunity to participate in many sporting events, on the student council and in clubs that promoted drug free environments and individual wellness not only at the high school but also the middle and elementary schools within our district. One change I would like to see take place in the Marsh Valley School District would be hiring a new athletic director. This change would directly affect the high school by replacing old coaches and eliminating small-town politics that often interfere and allow more students the opportunity to participate.

I liked a lot of the teachers at Marsh Valley. The problem with some of them was their expectancy to avoid giving out any homework assignment until the last few weeks of the trimester. In doing this, these teachers maximized our work load while we tried to prepare for finals. This led to more stress and could have been avoided. Also in my time at Marsh Valley, I came by incredible teachers, like my English teacher. She expanded my knowledge in the subject and made me question the level of my knowledge. She helped me feel more comfortable in my writing abilities and prepared me for the future. For that, I am very grateful.
I love Marsh Valley because it’s a school district that we can all call home. We are 8 towns that come to one school, and support each other however we can. The education is continually progressing, and the teachers are down to earth and very good at helping your become the best you can be. We may be small and rural however our athletes stand out amount our school rivalry’s. It’s an exceptionally safe school with a closed campus, and many programs and clubs to help keep students out of trouble. Marsh Valley is the best place if you enjoy close friendships and a home at school.
