The school has been through some changes in the last couple of years, but has come out even better and stronger. The new administration is highly dedicated and involved with the teachers, students and parents regularly. We are looking forward to another great year!

Those looking to relocate to any school in Union County need to be aware of the fact that corporal punishment is alive and well in North Carolina, one of 22 states where it is still legal. In fairness to Marvin elementary, this principal has chosen to not use this form of discipline, but any principal ...  Read more

We moved to this area from out of state and were concerned about the school system. However, Marvin Elementary has proved to be a school of very high standards. My little girl tells me every day how happy she is to go to school there. The teachers and leadership at the school are incredible. I am ...  Read more
