The Marietta City School District consist of six (6) buildings that serve a student enrollment of roughly 2,700 student. We have four (4) elementary buildings; Harmar, Phillips, Putnam, and Washington Elementary, plus Marietta Middle and Marietta High School. Our district spans 71 square miles of a mix of city, sub-urban, and rural communities.
Marietta High School offers a diverse selection of courses to roughly 900 students. MHS also offers a wide variety of College Credie Plus courses. Last year, our high school students received more than 3,300 hours of college credit.
Marietta Middle and High School both offer a well-developed Career Education program. Our students beginning at the 6th grade, begin to learn about various careers from local professionals. At the 7th grade, career mentors meet with students on a regular bassis to question, council, and listen to our middle school students. At the high school level, we require that every student take the Career Exploration class at the sophomore level.
The four elementary schools have a student teacher ratio of 1:18. The small ratio is attributed to our focus on inclusive classrooms that provide differentiated instruction by utilizing TAG, Title 1, and Special Education sevices within the same classroom. All four elementary schools use the co-teaching model to provide differentiated services within the same setting. In addition to a strong focus on literacy education, the four elementary school hav an active arts program. Art, music, and physical education are taught at all grade levels.
