District Profile

The Marietta City School District consists of four (4) buildings that serve a student enrollment of approximately 2,300 students. Following district consolidation in the summer of 2021, we have repurposed Phillips and Washington Elementary Schools to serve PreK-Second Grade. Marietta Elementary School now serves students in grades 3-6 and students grades 7-12 attend Marietta High School. Our district spans 71 square miles of a mix of city, suburban, and rural communities.

 Marietta High School offers a diverse selection of courses to approximately 1,100 students in grades 7 through 12. MHS also offers a wide variety of College Credit Plus courses. Students attending our high school typically receive more than 3,000 hours cumulatively of college credit each year.

 Marietta High School also offers a well-developed Career Education program. Beginning in seventh grade, career mentors and local professionals meet with students to listen, counsel and guide our students with exposure to a variety of career paths. Then building upon that early introduction, we require each student to take the Career Exploration class at the sophomore level.

Through our consolidation, our teachers have moved into more efficient and productive team environments. Our focus on inclusive classrooms that provide differentiated instruction and the implementation of Universal Design for Learning helps us to better meet the wide range of needs of our students. On any given day you could see talented and gifted, Title 1, and Special Education services often within the same classroom. Our elementary schools use the co-teaching model to provide differentiated services within the same setting. In addition to a strong focus on literacy education, our district has active and visible fine arts programs. Art, music, and physical education are taught at all grade levels and we are quite proud of the work of our students and staff.
