Marcus High School is an incredible school due to all the stakeholders. As teachers and parents, we are creating an opportunity for our students to excel in multiple areas such as academics, athletics, and the fine arts. PTSA works as a bridge between Marcus and our community of parents and students. As a strong supporter of public education, PTSA supports our school as an advocate and resource. Marcus PTSA is a strong contributor and helps put together our school homecoming, programs to battle drug/alcohol abuse, student scholarships, and so much more.
