I went to Marshwood for Vocational schooling and it was an amazing experience. I loved going there every day for half of my day it was a really nice break from NHS. While I was there I was taking the CNA clinical program and had a very nice teacher, very flexible and good person. The food was so good!! I would bring money with me every time I was there because their lunch compared to NHS was luxury food. I would recommend any person to put their children through the RSU 35 district because of the experience I had and the great opportunities I had there. I do not believe there is something they could work on.

MHS was an overall great school. They have a curriculim fit for multiple student levels, and you can earn college credit with all their AP/ Dual enrollment options. Their guidance department helped me find what I wanted to do, and persue. The staff is very supportive and will give you the tools for a valuable secondary education.
Overall, my experience at Marshwood was good. The school could be very authoritarian at times and the administration sucked, but on the other hand, I had some wonderful teachers and some very good classes.
