I taught at Marshall back in 2008. Oh God! What a mess. I couldn't wait until the end of the year so that I could escape. The main reason this school system was and probably is so bad is because of poor leadership and cronyism. I would never enroll my child in that school. What a mess.

MHS is one of the larger high schools in East Tx with aprox 1700 students. That said, most area districts that have high schools with enrollments of 1500 or more are generally classified as substandard by the masses. This is usually driven more by perception than reality (see Longview, Carthage, Kilgore, etc). MHS is very diverse. Some see that as a drawback, but I always saw it as the real world. students will get what they put into their education. If a student wants to be excellent (TAKS, ACT, SAT) MHS will accomodate their learning, as all the tools are present to excel. The extracurricular activities are top notch. The Chior and Band programs are recognized statewide, academics are as high as the student chooses to reach. A new principal has breathed in new life, test scores are comparable to other HS in the area. My children will proudly attend MHS.

We have gone through 4 principals in 3 years. This year, many experienced and AP teachers have accepted teaching positions elsewhere. There is a huge lack of communication between administration, students, and teachers. Because of the instability and superior attitude of upper administration, unqualified principals and teachers have been put into positions of authority to the detriment of our children. Attendance dropped over 200 students this year alone. My child will not go there next year.

I currently teach at MHS. We have had four principals in three years (one lasted a day). Morale is so low right now among teachers that I know more who are leaving than returning next year, including many good teachers who have been at MHS for years. Our current principal has made life so difficult for us--she has taken away all incentive to collaborate. There is never any positive feedback--only negative notes when you do something wrong. No one ever notices the little things anymore or when you do something extra. The problem is, though, if you complain, you had better watch your back. The kids are out of control. What goes on in the halls is unbelievable. I would never send my own children here. We'll move to Hallsville or Harleton first.

It is much easier and efficient for a student to simply withdraw from M.H.S. and earn a G.E.D. My two younger sisters both had their G.E.D. before they were 18 years old and are currently enrolled in college. I chose to hold out for a 'real' diploma and I have been kicking myself ever since. There's nothing to learn at Marshall H.S. except for the fine arts programs and they'll be the next to go. *******2004 Alumnus

My family loves Marshall Schools. I feel the staff work hard to provide a great education for our kids.No matter where you attend school, every school has its share of problems. Parents need to be more involved and not always put the blame on the schools.As parents, we need to make a difference in how our children feel about school. Marshall Junior High and High schools do not get the credit they deserve! My kids have received a great education and are involved in many activities. Kids can make the choice whether to be an active part of their school or be a part of the problems. There are many opportunity at our schools for the taking!

The availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities are excellent. The parental involvement needs improvement. The principal leadership leaves a lot to be desired. First there are too many principals. One never knows what the other one is doing about a particular situation or problem with a child and things can get very frustrating when you are trying to get something taken care of. Though there are a few that have been here for quite a while that I do commend. Safety and discipline is out of control. More policemen and metal detectors are needed. Lastly- Good teachers here are few and far between. We need more good teachers and smaller class rooms. It is the only public high school we have and is overcrowded.

The academic programs are excellent. If you want AP classes they are available and taught to help you pass the AP tests. The choir is award winning, and so is the band. The orchestra is there for those who want it. There is a great art program as well.
