Not withstanding the vitriol and errors in the "parent" review of October 22, 2011 and the almost illiterate writing of the reviews below that one, the Marion County school system is a pretty good one. Due to the proximity of Fort Benning, there is a bit of culture and support from the community which is probably lacking in many other counties of this population. The school system does seem to care and they do a good job of teaching our children. My suggestion to those who don't agree: Home school. It's easy to do in Georgia and there are increasingly excellent programs.

Even after attending MCMHS for 4 consecutive years, grammar and proper usage of punctuation and capital for proper names are misused or not used at all. If you're going to leave comments for public viewing be honest about it. Marion County is a scam. The same people for many years have ran the town and community. Tricked parents in believing they are sending their children to one of the best schools in the state but they're not. Grades are meeting state requirements by giving failing students retakes on their test. You don't get a RETAKE in life.

Tri-County is a great school. We live right next to the Marion County line and I had a choice to send my child to Schley or Tri-County...I checked both schools out and let me tell you Tri-County is a great school...and it has a very great athletic department and I would send my child there...a hundred thousand times before I'd send him to Schley.
