Marion School District
The Marion School was organized in 1887 and began classes that fall. Consolidation brought the community of Dolton into the Marion School District, beginning with the high school in 1944. Further consolidation brought the community of Monroe into the district in 1965.
The K-12 Marion Public School has an excellent academic curriculum, as well as many extra-curricular activities. Our student to teacher ratio is 8.5 to 1 in the elementary and 8.2 to 1 in the high school. All students in grades 9-12 have laptops. The district also has 4 laptop carts and Promethean boards in all the classrooms.
The Marion-Hurley Cobra football team captured the 2008 State B title. Also in 2008, the Marion FFA received national honors, placing 3rd as a team in the nation and claiming the #1 Individual in the nation honor.
In 1995, an addition was completed including a new band and chorus room, restrooms, concession stand and a second gymnasium. Having two gyms available has provided additional activity opportunities for all ages.
The school district provides busing to serve the rural areas, as well as the neighboring communities of Dolton and Monroe.
