  • Reviewed by Former Student on January 31, 2011
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • As a former student and now college graduate, I give little to no credit to Lake Marion High School for my education. The school is a compilation of several small towns and although the concept was good, it failed. The school district is a joke and applying for colleges was done solely on my own. I never felt safe, never wanted to be around the disgust that attends the school, and certainly didn't aspire to be like any of the staff there. I was disappointed and luckily never have to walk through those doors again. Obviously, I wouldn't recommend this school if you want your child to have a proper education.
