Horrible!!! I wish I had investigated the high school before buying a house in Marion, NC. This county desperately needs two high schools - McDowell High School is very overcrowded. One belief is that some groups do not want an additional high school because it will put the sport's teams into a 2A division. Next year, the two junior high schools will become middle schools - resulting in even more overcrowding when the two ninth grades join the high school. Our children's education should be the top priority but it is not. The city wastes so much money on frivolous things such as: new street signs, new downtown, new traffic lights, etc. Try and get your children into the McDowell Tech. early college program (if you are unable to move). Unfortunately, I mistakenly wanted my teenagers to experience high school. I did not do my research in time! Awful!!

Parent involvement is very low. Academically, the Math and Science departments are very well organized and have quality teachers capable and willing to teach students. The English department is above average, while the Social Studies department is an absolute joke. Overall, a quality education can be attained if a student is willing to put forth the effort. There is an outstanding Navy Jr. ROTC program at the school.
