Mariemont High School Virtual Tour: January 2018

Over the last year and a half, the Mariemont City School district has undergone an extensive evaluation process to better understand the serious needs of our current high school facility and work towards the creation of a High School Master Facility Plan. Community members, district representatives, architects and industry leaders have been working together to better understand the significant mechanical and structural needs at the high school. We have also given special attention to how our current high school impacts the education our students receive now and into the future. We know there is no zero-cost option and that a plan needs to be put in place soon so we can maximize the investment in our school and maintain excellence in our classrooms.
