I love the community at North Marion. We grow up together, go to the same district since preschool, and all grow so close. The school may be old, but with the bond passed, we'll be getting it rebuilt very soon. The best part about North Marion is our music program. Despite not having a marching band, our bands and choirs are some of the best in the league. Our jazz band recently won state! I could never ask for a better director! Let's go Huskies!

The school doesn't have very much money. As a result, there's not a big variety or a large number of electives to choose from. Also, the facilities are not great, but the schools are scheduled to be remodeled soon. Teachers are a hit or miss. There are some that are amazing, while there are others where you're surprised they still have a job. Their college readiness is horrible. You have to learn and do nearly everything on your own.
I have been at North Marion since preschool and I have enjoyed my time. I like how small the school is but it's not too small. The teachers are very nice and are dedicated to helping you progress. The only thing I wish could change is that there would be more classes offered.
