    Marion High School is a great school regardless of what others have to say. Yes there may be discipline problems but marion isnt the only school with this problem. I am a graduate of Marion High School and I am proud of it. Marion has quite a bit to offer and not just athletically. We have a great musical department and great academic teams. And yes we have always carried great pride in our sports. My children now attend Marion and they have done extremely well. Marion has some great teachers. I have spoken to a few of the teachers and have yet come across one who doesnt want the best for their students. We may have police patroling our halls and Im quite proud to say that I appreciate Marion for looking out for the safety of our children. Keep up the great job Marion.

    As a mother of a Marion High School student I just had to comment. I was nervous about sending my son to Marion but he loves it and he has had great success at Marion. Marion has some awesome teachers who really do care if they acheive their goals. Marion also has lots to offer athletically and academically. Marion also has cheerleaders that made it to Nationals in Florida which you dont see around grant county. My kids will always be a Marion Giant because I have no intentions of them going to another school. Go Giants!
