I'm upmost honest opinion about Marshall High School is that it's not the best nor the worst, but arent most all high school. I primarily say this because some teachers have been amazing, but others I feel need to be more open and more understanding of students, for example, I currently enrolled in ap, pre-ap, and college classes, but mostly my ap English teacher isn't very understanding of us students and expects perfection every first try. Also, the diversity isn't the very best and feels that it should be pushed on students or advised on fellow peers to become more diverse, but overall the school its self ist half as bad some things need work on, like all high school, but Marshall High School is a pretty decent High School overall.

My school has several aspects that I enjoy. For example, this school offers me one of my main sources of happiness; my school's drill team. This team has offered me several opportunities to grow as an individual. I'm thankful for the opportunities drill team has presented for me. Another aspect I enjoy about my school is its high level of diversity. After attending Marshall schools, I can work with people from all different backgrounds. Being introduced to all types of people allows me to broaden my horizons and challenge me socially.
Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Marshall. However, I do believe that in order to do well, you must get in the right classes and surround yourself with good people.
Overall I've had a decent experience throughout my high school years here at Marshall High School. The school mainly focuses itself on the football team like most high schools here in Texas since football is the #1 sport down in the south. I do wish that the same focus and energy spent on the football team was also spent in various other areas of our school such as the academic departments like the UIL teams or the art departments like band, orchestra, color guard, etc.
