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.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
