Marshfield High School is a very decent school for being in a rather small community. The school, especially the high school, is really the proud jewel of the town, to some extent. It has very polished facilities and good efficacy as a learning institution. There are numerous problems, most small in the grand scheme, but overall, nothing foundation breaking. The school runs well, and it has for a while. It just needs to care less about private funding, more about a well-rounded learning environment that supports all tracks of learning, especially those in the arts, and could benefit from an interwoven counseling system with the other schools and with mental health programs in town. Beyond that, my only issues spring from my own time there, and it's nothing against the school as much as the students in attendance. I would recommend this school to someone within Webster County.

I am very lucky to be a Marshfield High School sophomore. MHS offers a wide array of classes, clubs, and activities perfect for anyone to find their niche. They are very open to individuals beginning their own clubs and organizations as well, as long as the founder finds a staff sponsor to oversee the meetings. They make student success a top priority with awesome guidance counselours, college coordination, university campus tours, and competitive academics. However, many individuals in band seem to be overworked and unhappy with their experience. Though our band sounds awesome, I think mental health and school-life balance should become more of a priority.
Marshfield High School is a fairly well rounded school; it has art, sports, technology, agriculture, speech, debate, and even math programs, classes, and clubs. The majority of teachers accomplish what they are expected, while also supporting students, helping with clubs, and making field trips happen. In the future, I would like to see students have more opportunities to personally have a hand in helping the school as a whole. I would also appreciate a higher quality and standard of school meals for the students. Thank you for taking the time to read this review.
