I think that Marion is a great place to reside. The people in the community are amazing, and the schools are even more amazing, because they are filled with amazing teachers. I love Marion!

Small community where everybody knows everybody. I just moved to Marion about a year ago. Though I attended a private Christian school, my twin sister attended Marion High School where she thrived both socially and academically.
Very nice little town. Family friendly environment. Great nightlife in town. Commute time is little to if you are working int he tiny town and living near by.
