School Reviews

  • Recommended November 07, 2006 - Marion C. Early is a growing district. We're small, but we have great opportunities. We have many acedenic, musical, artistic, and athletic groups. We're trying to get a bond issue passed in order to build on to our school to accomodate our rapid student increase. Parents are involved very much in the district. Our faculty is amid the best that I've worked with. Marion C. Early is an excellent place to learn. - Posted by Administrator
