If you live in the Hazleton Area and you are looking for a GREAT SCHOOL, you have to look at Marian Catholic High School. I live in a different state, but my brother's children were Marian students.

The person who graduated in 1976 should not be submitting his experience, and therefore, rating, over 30 years later. Administration and faculty have changed.

The main reason I did not like this school is because they make you feel inferior if you don't have money. When the parents cannot pay tuition on time, they punish the kids by withholding graduation cap and gown and they are not discreet about it.

Overall, it is an excellent school. Been a few years since I was there, however. When I attended, there was a tendancy to feel that if you were not a blue chip, legacy or athlete, or if the prospects of attending college weren't very good, you had the feeling you were being marginalized.
