Marist Catholic is hands down the best high school in the Eugene-Springfield area. It offers an unparalleled opportunity for academic, athletic, social, and spiritual growth, along with a tight-knit, family atmosphere. I took full advantage of the Honors, AP, and College Now courses Marist offers. In addition to building critical thinking skills as a result of these classes, I was fortunate to enter college as a sophomore based on credits! Marist's teachers are excellent, and many of them have been part of the community for multiple decades. They know their subject matter inside and out, and it shows. Attentive teachers and small class sizes ensure that each student gets what he needs to succeed. Furthermore, teachers are more than willing to provide individualized attention. I always felt comfortable approaching them for help, and they were always happy to provide it. Amongst others, I was particularly impressed by the quality of the English, History, Science, and Mathematics departments. Thanks to Marist, I felt incredibly well prepared for the rigors of a collegiate course load at a Top 100 National University. As a top-flight college preparatory institution, Marist offers more than just academic excellence. Its holistic approach to education sets it apart from the rest of the area schools. Almost every student is encouraged to participate in multiple sports, clubs, or other extracurriculars. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience as a member of the football and golf teams, in addition to the Christian Leadership Class and Retreat Team. My development as an athlete, friend, leader, and spiritual being was every bit as impactful as my classroom experience at Marist. Additionally, learning how to balance academics with extracurriculars was critical to my success in college. Last but not least, I found lifelong friends at Marist! I don't have kids yet, but if I did, I can't imagine sending them anywhere else for high school. I am truly thankful and blessed to be part of the Marist family!
