Inspiring a Community of Achievement

About Marion City Schools

Our Mission

Inspire a Community of Achievement

Our Philosophy

Marion City Schools' mission statement is to inspire a community of achievement. While that means different things, we ultimately define that achievement for students as being prepared for success after they graduate. We came up with our Four Pillars to help them achieve that success.

Our Four Pillars follow four distinct themes including Leadership, Learning, Literacy and Legacy. We want our students to leave high school with not only their diploma but also acceptance into a two- or four-year college, an adult training program, the military, or a high-paying, in-demand job.

That's just part of what makes Marion City Schools unique in the area. We offer innovative experiences, educational options and learning programs not available in surrounding school districts. We search for ways to prepare students for not only academic success but success in college and careers as well.

Our Four Pillars

  • Literacy

  • Legacy
    By 2023, MCS will improve Prepared for Success component on the Local Report Card to a “C” or better.

Community

Marion City Schools is fortunate to be located in a community that supports the education of its youth. This is true for residents who are family members of our children and for those who don’t have relatives in our schools. We are blessed to have amazing community partnerships with businesses and organizations like OhioHealth, Marion Technical College and The Ohio State University-Marion, as well as amazing relationships with Marion Police Department and Marion City Fire Department as well as others. These entities and many more play a vital role in the success of our students.
