Read what parents are saying about North Marion High School
Educationally very typical of all schools in Oregon. Exceeds at providing opportunities for kids to participate, lead and be active in clubs, athletics, etc... I value the ability to make a team, lead a club, impact your class and school. NM is the perfect size and environment for this. Kids choosing other schools just might get a better education, but they'll also likely miss out of many of the very important aspects that make the school experience very valuable.

I have had two children graduate from North Marion after attending for 12 years, one in 2009 and the other in 2012. Both of them went on to 4 year universities. As with any school the success of a student has to do with their attitude and that of their parents. My children received a good education but did not have the opportunities of the larger schools in Portland. On the other hand they grew up in a very strong community that takes responsibility for each other, they would not have that in a large district. The HS advanced math teacher is amazing and changed the way my kids think about math. She actually made calculus fun. The music dept. is also very strong under the leadership of a former music professor that really likes kids. N Marion offers the basics but doesn't have the size or resources to offer many extras. The current principal achieved an 'outstanding state rating' after just three years of leadership. She is one of the best things to happen to the HS in a long time. I choose to raise my kids in a rural community rather than in Portland Metro. I made the right decision and am proud of the women my kids grew into.

I attended north marion and in no way was prepared for college. In fact, most teachers let me slide because I was big into sports. After taking my placement test at a four year college I soon realized how much I didn't know. Math and Science fall far short of what students should know before attending college. I recommend if you want your kids to learn and are in the district.....MOVE, Its worth your kids education.
