Marshfield overall had a good atmosphere in terms of student/teacher relationships. The main issues that I have with it are that the academics are seen as less important than athletics by staff and administration, only one AP class is offered, the band program is underfunded and not supported, and the attitude by the teachers is to just get the students to passing with little support for those wanting to go above and beyond. The things I like are that the students respect each other and school spirit is encouraged. I've had some great, supportive teachers, but there are also teachers that shouldn't be teaching.

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.
