As a junior at Marshfield High School, I think this an excellent school. Marshfield offers a wide range of academical and athletic opportunities for all students, from theater to golf. With a relatively young, understanding teaching staff, the school brings new, contemporary teaching styles and a move in the direction from pencils and paper to mouses and keyboards. The school gives off a small town atmosphere in a relatively middle-class town.

This school is a top 10! I have had 3 kids attend, and graduate from MHS, and we all loved it. Great teachers who listen, assist, and are there for the kids as well as the parents. Best school ever! Academic and sports are tops.

Not a friendly school. Teachers favor students due to which church they attend. If you didn't start in elementary here, then you are an 'outsider.' Advanced students have no incentive to achieve. No Valedictorian. School counselor is lacking with student understanding. Teachers just try to get through the day and don't care. If students inquire about their grades, teachers get annoyed. Sports rule- Academics drool philosophy. Not impressed. Wish there was open enrollment in this state.

I like the dress code, high goal setting, and power writing program they have started this school year.

The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
