My experience at Marshfield High has been great. Aside from offering a great variety of rigorous courses, the school does a great job at providing students with interesting elective courses. Marshfield is known as a strong sports community. I have been fortunate to play on two sports teams at MHS...field hockey and lacrosse. With the many volunteer, civic and cultural groups offered at Marshfield High School, this provides students with many ways to stay involved and give back to the community. MHS has provided me with a strong academic foundation with the ability to challenge myself with taking a variety of courses. Aside from the academic rigor, the teachers are very dedicated and available to their students. They truly want to see all their students succeed and will do their best to provide the support and guidance for that to happen. Overall, my experience at MHS has been such a positive one. I feel very prepared for the next chapter in my academic career.

Marshfield High School provides a unique support network of teachers who are always available to provide help when needed. I have been fortunate to receive a lot of help both inside the class and outside of class hours from most of my teachers. The facility itself it very modernized and suits the needs of this day and age. There are plenty of resources to take advantage of, including the maker space, the writing lab, and the math lab. This has been especially beneficial in being successful in my high school experience. The sports teams and clubs at Marshfield High School have provided a great support network to both freshmen and people new to the group. Furthermore, all the club advisers are always ready to provide help with anything and I am grateful for the time they take off to help these clubs be a success.
The principal at Marshfield High School sets the tone for the building. He is all about high achievement and community involvement. I can't count the number of times I've heard him say, "we are Marshfield." There are tons of options for classes, sports, groups, arts, etc. There are so many opportunities for students to be involved. One of my favorite things is Grad Night Live, an all night celebration for graduates. It is run by volunteers using donated money and goods. Countless hours are spent transforming the school based on a different theme every year. The kids love it and it keeps them safe on an important night in their lives.
