As schools go, Marist is about as good as it can get. I am currently a senior, and have attended Marist since 7th grade. Most of the teachers are absolutely incredible, but a few are lacking. Academics are challenging and extremely competitive, and a wide variety of electives and APs are offered. There is an extracurricular activity to serve everyones interest, and parents are highly involved. My experience at Marist has, for the most part, been very positive. The only aspect of Marist that I dislike is that the principal, who returned to Marist several years ago, has increasingly taken much of the 'life' out of Marist to make it more 'academic.' High school is not just about making the best grades and studying all the time, and I worry that the class of 2005 might be one of the last to realize that.
I had one child that has graduate from Marist and She was more than prepared for the academic riggers of a school like Ga.Tech. Academically you can not beat it. They do need to be more serious about girls sports.
Marist is the greatest catholic high school in my opinion. There is a great teaching staff, and Marist is a safe environment with a helpful community.
