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.

I attended high school at Marshfield High School in Marshfield, Massachusetts. Throughout my four years in high school, I learned many valuable lessons. The teachers who worked at MHS have a very big impact on my life. The teachers cared about their students and wanted to see them succeed. The MHS guidance council department was very helpful when applying to college. They made the process smooth and stress free. Marshfield High School faculty has a very positive influence on all their students.
Marshfield has provided our children with a solid foundation. Through the teachers and administration, they have learned the imporrtance of school work as well as developing who they are and who they want to be. In addition, the school helps shape their involvement in our community.
