Currently, I am researching schools in this area. Unfortunately, I am concerned due to an administrator's review. This "administrator" actually spells EXCELLENT incorrectly!?!

i give this school a five star rating...i currently moved to North Carolina and i don't go a day without wishing i was back at North Marion High. This school and its staff care about their students and do anything it takes to get them to move on. I was not the best student when i was there, but i really did try my best. The teachers at this school care about students. If you don't get in trouble and stay focused you will succeed in this school. -Guy Bacelo Jr.

I go to this school, the kids hear are amazeing, yes I don't quite know how to spell that word. This school does not have high standards and you don't get bullied on account there are most likely going to be a group of people that you can fit in with and they will be there for you. It's a big deal when someone moves away, well at least to the kids it is. If they know that person well then they will most likely miss them and be sad, you wont find that at quite a few schools in Marion county. If you don't want to be judged and can handel fights perodicly and can handle people being themselfs then this is a good school for you. Right now they are woring on us getting higher grades on the FCAT with 20min at the end of cass during blk days.

I rate North Marion High School a five star school because of the commitment given from the teachers and the principal. I believe if you have the 'I Can' attidude you can succeed. The staff has nailed this hands down and their enthusiasm has obviously infected our students. This was our first year at North Marion H.S. and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Ms. Quelland for your constant support of our kids future. Thank you for your commitment and vision.

Having had the opportunity to visit other schools in Marion County on numerous occasions - I have never experienced a fraction of the school spirit or pride that North Marion demonstrates.

I was a student at North Marion my freshman and sophomore years. It was a great school besides the scheduling system. They needed more time for class change and the classes to be spread out so people could have a locker and have enough time to go to it. I liked how they had the Honors Academy. It was harder but would look better on application to any college. I'm going to have say I'm going to miss Cow Patty High. It's a GREAT school with a great staff.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
