After moving from Broward County at one of the "BEST" schools it had to offer that turned out to be a joke I am leary of public schools in Florida. Marathon has greatly changed my opinion. My daughter has excelled so far and has made such a huge turn around from the issues she had at her old school. Bullying is non-existant, teachers actually care and give the kids the attention they need. I'm so thrilled with this school and thankful this is the district we live in!

I have two daughters who attend this school and they love it, but I think that they are too relaxed; there is not much for them to do when they are home. I would like to see them being challenged. There is not much motivation or anything that is pushing them to strive for the best. Marathon is a great school, but there is room for much improvement.

Parent involvement is a key. I am new to the school with a 6th grader @ the middle school. I have attended the SAC meetings in the media center on the 2nd Tuesdays of the month @ 6pm. I am learning about all the exciting new programs the school is taking on for the students. The school is working hard to put students @ the top to be prepared for College or future careers. I want to be involved as much as I can for my 6th graders future. I hope ALL parents feel this way and start to Volunteer.

Many of the students are there for a free ride and as a result make it difficult for the good teachers to teach, and inhibits the learning for those that do want to learn. Students are not ready for college.

the music program is in shambles first of all. This school is extremely hard to work with also and is uncooperative. The staff has an extremely high turnover rate, with all administrators being replaced this year, and a new band director coming in every year. The marching band continues to plummet in size, and despite this, the administration frowns on students who bring this up.

The discipline problems in this school are profound given the size of the school. It is an aging campus that desperately needs to be rebuilt. There are very limited vocational programs. Only three years of foreign language instruction is offered. Class sizes are rather large. AP classes are also limited. The music program is currently in shambles. It does have a strong football program if that is important to you.
