Hello, I am the very proud principal of Marshfield High School! I believe that we offer a fully comprehensive high school curriculum and an enriching array of extra-curricular offerings that afford our students the opportunity to explore and find their direction. We are an academically rigorous school. Our AP scores are among the top, if not the top in the state. Our tech ed. program is very strong and skillfully prepares our students for a career path. Please come for a visit and check us out! You will find an exceptional public school with an incredible staff and wonderful students. But honestly...I am more than a little biased so come and see for yourself!
