For any student who wants to get involved in athletics or join the involvement, Marvin Ridge is the school for you. The school places heavy emphasis on two things: academics and sports. The school goes all-out for sporting events, especially involving the football team and the basketball team, as well as the soccer team when they are doing good. The spirit in this school is intense, even though you won't get shunned for not showing support. I would say that the only students who may not show as much support are the IB students, but that's what IB is like. Facilities are top notch, and there is a large amount of fitness-related electives available. In my years of high school, the Marvin Ridge Athletic Department has been very good, especially the swimming, soccer, and track teams. The school usually wins the Wachovia Cup every year, signifying the performance that the sports teams put out every year.

Marvin Ridge High School offers a lot to students in many fields, but when considering the diversity of the school, it is very limited. Over 90% of the school is white, which I do not consider a problem at all, but just that I wish there was more diversity. Many of the students are kind and respectful to others, so you wont always feel left out or neglected. However, due to the Waxhaw area being very high-class and the intelligence level, many of the students do carry big egos and may leave out students or find wrong in them for not being smart. I found this to be true before I became more socially involved and less timid, but that is outside the International Baccalaureate Program. In IB, I am surrounded by extremely intelligent students and feel left out at times for not being as smart . Many times, students will accept you for who you are, but this is not guaranteed with everyone. I do feel that the lifestyle of certain students is not appropriate with my beliefs, so that is an area to be aware of. Many of the students at Marvin Ridge are respectful and kind, but not everyone.
There are plenty of opportunities for students to be involved with the school after the day has been finished, or even before the school day begins. There are over fifty clubs to choose from, and there is also a wide variety of clubs. For example, the school has three business/finance related clubs (FBLA, DECA, and FIFA) yet the focus of these clubs is very different that a student can be a member of each club and learn a different skill. Most of the clubs are run by students, along with teacher advisers, and the commitment to the club is mostly strong. Only a few clubs do not have much commitment from their student founders/leaders. At Marvin Ridge High School, there are many clubs to choose from that will fit your preferences and needs.
