    "I am now graduated and in college but I still remember not enjoying being at MJHS. I rarely had good teachers. I had a few good ones, but not that many. I had a teacher in 6th grade that was so hateful to me and was the entire year. The teachers and administrators were biased towards the "popular" students. The only good part of school for me was band with Mr. Childress. He was the best teacher at that school."

    "My child attended this school from 6-8 grades and it was a disaster. On many occasions he was bullied, and when you contact the administration, they would rather ignore the problem than to address it until the child being bullied decides to take a stand and punches the bully; then it becomes an issue, even though they have been told countless times of the situation. Most of the teachers don't want to work one on one with any student. They simply ask, "What more can you do at home?" Because the 6-8 hours of work at night at home that we were doing weren't enough. The principal of this school is too young and too inexperienced to be in her current position. She is more worried about being accepted by the "cool" kids than she is in doing her job. Sometimes it will take her days to get back to you with a concern, and sometimes then only will she respond when threatened somehow. The administration, as a whole, is incompetent and lazy. If I had to do it over again, I would never send my child here. I was so disheartened by the junior high, that I pulled my child from public school and enrolled him in a private school rather than chance more of the same in the high school."

    "Marion Junior High School is a good solid school. Both of my children have attended there and I have been pleased with the teachers, adminstration and staff. Issues can't be resolved unless we as parents take the opportunity to work toward a solution. I always found MJHS a good place for my kids to be."

    "Administration is a joke and the teachers are only interested in Summers off. The technology department is lightyears behind surrounding districts."
