It's About ME: Tradition

The Mariemont Experience is about Tradition. The Mariemont City School District has a history of rich tradition, interwoven throughout the district’s nearly 140-year history. There are traditions of Halloween parades, pep rallies, Parent-Grandparent Day visits, flag-raising events, award-winning theatrical performances and of riding bikes to school. Read one family's story about tradition here or read about one family that has been in the school district since 1926 here! There are also traditions of academic excellence, as a public school district with private school advantages.

A timeless tradition at Mariemont City Schools is the extensive course and extracurricular offerings available to all students. Read the story of one student's involvement in school and other activities here. Individualized educational opportunities are abundant in the school district, throughout all grades. The district offers 15 Advanced Placement courses, in subjects ranging from Statistics to Studio Art to European History. There are also a half dozen dual enrollment courses available to students, enabling them to earn college credit while still in high school. Student achievement is a tradition here at Mariemont City Schools; Read about how one student accomplishes her own sense of achievement here

District students consistently perform above both the state and the national average on both the SAT and the ACT tests, and each year students are named as National Merit Scholars. Read the story of one National Merit Scholar here.

Because we believe that a well-rounded education includes a variety of student-involvement opportunities, there are 24 junior high athletic teams, 13 junior high clubs, 39 high school athletic teams and 32 high school clubs open to each student. The participation rate in extracurricular activities in our district is 82%. Read Caleb's story here.

Mariemont High School graduates continue their education, attending colleges and universities such as Clemson University, Denison University, DePaul University, Harvard University, Loyola University, New York University, Ohio State University, University of Michigan, Savannah College of Art and Design, Vanderbilt University and Xavier University. Read about the Purcell siblings, Mariemont graduates attending high-performing colleges here. Approximately 90% of each graduating class chooses to attend a 4-year college or university. In 2014, over $4 million of merit-based scholarship money was awarded to Mariemont High School seniors.

Many of the district alumni continue on to make a difference in the lives of many, as employees, volunteers, entrepreneurs and business and community leaders. Read about Scott Hamlin, Mariemont graduate and business leader here. As a new tradition, the district honors distinguished alumni every year.
