I graduated from NMHS just a few years ago, and I still hold a great deal of resentment towards the school. There are a few great teachers who helped me a great deal along the way, but the majority outweigh the few good quality teachers. I graduated in the top of my class with a GPA of 3.7, and continued on to college where I struggled to get a D in my English class. I was not prepared whatsoever for college format (I was even taught that college format of writing papers was incorrect!). However I will say I excelled in Math at NMHS (because of those few good teachers). North Marion is used to being on a low budget with good-for-nothing kids and they don't make the effort needed to turn the school into a success. They bring to bar lower and lower for students and in turn this hurts the students who are eager to learn and willing to work. This school has great potential, but it needs more discipline and structure

this school has a very poor child/teacher relationships. My daughter went there and it seemed to me the teachers were more annoyed than please to help certain children.

I enjoy teaching at this school because I feel that I have backing from the adminstrators and the students are polite and respectful, most of the time. I am a newer teacher and my colleagues have been nothing other than supportive and helpful. There is no other high school in Marion county that I'd rather teach in.

N.M.H.S is an outstanding school. I went there and my son is now Student Body President. He is going to attend WVU in the fall so he can return there someday as a teacher to pass on to others what was given to him. This school has produced Doctors and lawyers and other outstanding leaders of the community. N.M.H.S does not get the credit that they deserve. I am very proud to say that I graduated from this fine school. My son has maintained a 3.8-4.0 his whole high school attendance, and will be greatly rewarded for all of his hard work with not having to pay a dime for his college. He had teachers who gave up their lunch to help him with assignments he didn't understand. That is true dedication from the teachers.

Everyone is complaining about the school.I think its the adults fault.They seem to have no discipline. I mean when you think about it, life comes down to the adults. Dont blame the children attending there, yes it is some of their faults but as I said mostly the parental units and school boards. Adults, you better start taking responsiblity.

North Marion does not push kids hard enough or enforce their rules. Most of the kids there are failing, I actually know a few 18 year old freshmen still attending there. In one of my classes (Basic History 9) Only 7 of the 26 kids are passing. I don't mean only 7 have A's, I mean only 7 have a D or above. The teachers seem to worry more about the football scores than the students education, and there are almost no oppertunities for parent involvment except parent teacher conference every 9 weeks.
