Marshfield Senior High School Reviews

My high school is in an economically struggling community. It is very old (my grandparents and my father attended the school), but we recently passed a bond that will make much-needed building improvements. The teaching staff is excellent and they are passionate about teaching, but sometimes their jobs are made more difficult because many students don't have the desire to succeed. This lack of motivation is a direct result of the attitude that our community has towards college and higher education.
On the flip side, many of the citizens and businesses in Coos Bay have outstanding support for our school's sports programs. The community pride is encouraging and empowering for successful athletes. For kids who aren't as successful athletically, there are other distinguished clubs and activities like band and forensics. They are equally as successful as sports programs, but like many schools, they don't get the same recognition for their achievements as athletes do.

I have attended Marshfield for my entire high school career and I have been pleased for the most part with the school overall. Most teachers are very good and helpful. Marshfield also has a rich history and incredible legacy and it is very exciting to be a part of. Marshfield is very good about giving their students the chance for college. While attending the high school you may take any college class through them and it is covered by the school. I know people on track to, and people that have received their associates degree through Marshfield by attending our Local Community College. I did not even realize about trades until someone else introduced them to me which I feel like the school should have done. They should also offer more opportunities for people to find a trade they are interested in rather than just finding everyone a major for a college.
My experience at Marshfield Senior High School was great. I have never seen so much school spirit and high moral from students in high school first hand. Getting help in and out of classrooms is easy, and the school has a wide range of academic levels in classes for every student to apply themselves to. The one thing I would like Marshfield Senior High School to change, is the diversity in its classes and electives. For example, expanding the language department to offer more than just Spanish. The staff is really supportive in helping each student in striving to reach their academic and personal goals and seeing fit that they reach their potential.
