My two children have been attending Marbury for quite a while now. They absolutely love it! I did not expect for my kids to enjoy such a small school environment, but surprisingly, they can not wait to go to school in the morning. We have seen some teachers that were not quite up to par, but overall the teaching staff at Marbury is great. Both of my kids passed all parts of the AHSGE on their first try. Not only are the academics nice at MHS, but they have a great band and football team. You are sure to enjoy your trip to a football game. Baseball and softball are big hits these days also! Marbury High School may be moved to a different building soon, but I still recommend that your kids attend Marbury High School. All aspects of this school are amazing.

My daughter has been going to Marbury HS for 3 years now and we love this school. I have been very impressed with the teachers and administrators and because the student body is smaller, everybody knows each other for the most part. For the parent who complained about sports being funded and the band not, each sport is funded by their respective booster clubs who do fundraisers throughout the year. I would highly recommend this school.

My children are enrolled in Marbury High School and they sort of enjoy it. They like half the teachers they have but some of them I am not particularly fond of. Another thing is that the sports part of the school gets funded like crazy but what about the band? They aren't even on the website!!

My son is presently a student at Marbury High school. I feel that most of the teachers are not qualified. There are only a select few that will go out of there way to help a student that is doing poorley in a class.

Our daughter has been a student at Marbury for three years now and we could not ask for a better high school! The administration is very intuitive and the teachers work together with them to help make Marbury a very good school.

My son is presently a student at Marbury and where as I feel a select few of the teachers are not qualified for the most part the others go above and beyond their jobs in supporting the kids.

I think that for a school of its size Marbury high is very good. the principal Mr Hulen rules with a iron fist in a velvet glove which at this age of children is what you need . the Ag teacher john colquitt is just great .
