Dedicated staff and administration. Plenty of opportunity for a small school. Rated one of the areas best and I can see why.

Marion Public School is a great small school, students are very receptive and accepting to all. We have a wonderful sports program including football, sideline cheer, volleyball, basketball, cross country, competitive cheer, track, softball& baseball. Students are allowed to play more than 1 sport per season (unlike most schools)and most generally everyone makes the team. Our School has been recognized & honored by the state in more than one sport for athletic teams with high a G.P.A . Small class sizes, after school tutoring, now starting some excelled student class opportunities, dual enrollment & now Career Tech Center classes in Cadillac offered in the morning & afternoon. Are just some of the positive points of our school. Our Elementary has also been recognized & Honored for our "Carbo reading Program" . I have had one child graduate and positively ready for college and proudly two more that are excelling in Marion. If you are a supportive & involved parent you will be very satisfied with education your child can receive.

This school has gone through so much in the past few years. As a parent, I am sickened by a small group of community members, disgruntled ex employees and even a couple of current employees that have created such embarrassment and chaos for this school and its community. Instead of the school being able to concentrate on student learning, it has had to protect itself from an on-slot of negative and disrespectful behavior by this group. This band of people has made it impossible for the school s administration to remove a few incompetent teachers and improve achievment. I am so disappointed for the students and the community that these people have cast such a negative light on the school and cost the school district so much of its dwindling resources on frivolous and personal agendas . Shame on them!

The schools ability to address the needs of children with academic challenges is less than satisfactory. It has taken months of constant badgering to get all involved to get on board with providing the educational atmosphere that my child needs to excel. It is quite evident in walking the halls that accountability for both teachers and students not a priority. For those that have the best interest of the students in mind, I commend you for your efforts (not everyone is there to have summers off). It cannot be easy working in that environment. I am grateful for those of you that continue to look at the future of our children beyond the halls of this high school. For those that don t, remember the children you teach today are the people that you will depend on to take care of you later.

I have worked at the school for the past 5 years. I absolutely love the staff and students. Our teachers are tracking each students progress as it pertains to the State Standards and Benchmarks. Al core classes have assessments that are aligned to the State Standards. Our staff genuinely cares about students and the students do care about each other. I did not graduate from Marion, nor did I grow up here. I enjoy the community and atmosphere at Marion. Not every school is perfect and not every school offers everything under the sun. We are limited, but for what we have, we use it to the best of our ability. We do have modern technology and use it daily. Our school is welcoming and sincere. Go Eagles!

I am a student and I have issues with Marion because the principal is not fair or consistant. What I do like about Marion is the teachers. They do care and will not allow you to fail. They push and make us do what you are suppose to do. The town is good and the students are friendly. Your name does not matter here...you do.

What a great school! The staff is wonderful and the commitment to education is overwhelming. There is no other place I d want my kids to attend school. Everyone from the secretaries to custodians and even the principal are so nice and helpful to kids and parents. My children are getting a great education.

I think Marion gives you a sense of freedom, there is something uninhibited about it, which can be nice, but overall, its not a great school. Too much of the staff is related and nearly all are former students. They get by, and form relationships, which is comfortable, but there is no real push for academic excellence.

The administration is too busy covering up their inadequacies, and the teachers are apathetic to the learning environment. My children have become very frustrated at the lack of teaching quality. I am removing them from this school district as a result. If you expect your children to fail at life, then this is the school for you.

I am a MHS graduate. I was a good student, member of the Honors Society, and participated in the music program. My seven years within the school were wonderful. Teachers were excellent. Each of my teachers were experts in their field, open to questions, and willing to go above their job descriptions to allow one on one time with students. While in my elementary years, I attended a Class A school, small town education is very different. While the school was unable to supply some of the luxuries of larger schools, they did not skimp on good-old-fashioned teaching. I am a proud graduate of MHS, fully educated, employed and well rounded individual.

I agree that this school is horrible but I moved her almost 2 yrs ago from a Class B school. There are no AP/Honor classes and if you don't play a team sport since 7th grade (like basketball, volleyball) your chances of getting on the team are next to none

My children graduated from Marion High School over the past ten years (they attended entirely, K-12). They are college graduates and employed full time. All were adequately prepared for life beyond high school; however, their mathematics education could have been better (all successful through Algebra II). They had many opportunities for music, sports and other extra activities. The level of parent involvement was as much as we, the parents, chose to make it. This school district did a good job educating our children.

This school is terrible. It has a low level of academics. It offers absolutely no honor classes. The classes do not offer a lot of challenge to students. I regret sending my children to this school.
