  • Dont listen to the bad reviews! This school is outstanding! Everyone looks out for everyone. The teachers help out students in their time. Also tutoring is available which really helped me because at first I wasnt doing good in Global I had a 65 in the class in the first marking period, then I ended up with a 82 on the regents.You have to take a test in order to get accepted in this school. The international environment is phenominal! Many different cultures from all over the world. And you can travel around the world in an exchange program!!

  • Oh wow! I hate this school so much.
    Principal Leadership and Staff: The teachers give more attention to the smart kids than the ones who actually need help. My overall ranking is one apple because the only good thing about this school is that we start school at 9AM. Also, since this is an "international school" the asians have more benefits than americans.

  • Marble Hill High School is just an above average high school, not a super school! The school environment is awful with very little space for this small school to use. All students are required to do 36 stressful projects a year. If the students dont do the project, they will not get a grade for the class. Students only get less than 30 minutes of lunch. This school only prepares you for community colleges. Students dont even get the chance to choose the classes that will help them with their future endeavors. The only good thing is that its college prep.
