    "Marian is not what it used to be. Recently, it has become all about money and not focusing enough on the care of the students who go there. You get in more trouble for not turning in calendar money than being disrespectful to one another. Yes, Marian has an excellent academic program and prep for college but good morals should be taught along with that. Also the admission process is not difficult. I know plenty of people who did not pass the original entrance exam but went to summer school to be accepted. My hard work on the exam didn't even matter because everyone else just went to summer school and got put into B classes. It was that easy. (Another way Marian focuses on retrieving money). Plenty of other schools have high expectations AND warm, respectful communities. In the perspective of a leader and an honors student, If you want your child to be unhappy and in an environment that pushes you down instead of lifting you up, send him or her to Marian."

    "Marian Catholic High School is an excellent education and as I read the comments of students and parents it seems that the ones complaining are mainly complaining because they don't understand living a life with high expectations. Don't send your kid here if you want mediocrity. This is a school dedicated to excellence. Every student gets out of Marian exactly what they put into it. If you don't like the FEW students who may be perceived as being "bratty" or "lord of the manner" then look to the hundred of other students who don't fit this description. Marian produces leaders in the community. Marian students come out with writing skills that far exceed any high school in the area. No one can make your child feel inferior. Teach your children to be leaders and not that they need to be protected or removed in order to be accepted. Marian has a difficult admission process unlike local private schools and it is certainly not a test of placement. My husband and I both went to Marian. My daughter graduated last year and I currently have 2 children attending Marian. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a challenging quality education not a life of mediocrity."

    "Came back to write a follow up and I can tell you my sophmore is complaining of the brattiness of the students (they feel very entitled) AND the disdainful treatment of the teachers. I paid the FULL tuition no one dollar of assistance and well my money is better spent somewhere else. I will not allow my child's self esteem to take a hit because of some ridiculous sense of entitlement by the "well to do" and the "lord of the manor" attitude of the faculty."

    "Excellent school that demands respect from the students. Hey is you give it one star than you do not belong to be in the elite school that this is. 9K ya thats alot, but Marian does NOT collect taxes, it has to be self sufficient to pay the teachers, insurance and upkeep. I would rather have an actual College Prep school any day to a public school who only cares IF you want to go to college. At MCHS the question is WHAT college are you going to! I found the staff caring, if you say they are not, you did not belong here!"

    "Marian is outrageous. They have you raise all of this money for nothing. The teachers there are never satisfied. To be honest both I and my parents are disappointed but its the same at all catholic schools. Marian's staff only care about the money and thats the reason why alot of kids are leaving I wouldnt want my parents paying all of that money and the school really isnt that good. I must say there are some good teachers but not alot. Marian is a greedy school who only cares about taking your money like really is $500 for summer school caused for I would rather take it during the year and save that. Marian needs to get better on academics and stop worrying about discipline."
