Marathon High School News
Welcome to Marathon High School.
Marathon is 1 of 5 high schools in the beautiful Florida Keys Monroe county school district. Marathon High School was ranked 55 out of 990 Florida high schools including charter, magnet, and public schools in a "U.S. News and World Report" national ranking of high schools. Marathon scored 1029 out of 21,000 in the nation of schools that made it past the first two steps.
This report shows that the average Marathon high school student is performing better than similar students state wide with regard to Math and Reading proficiency ratings. The report also takes into account those students who are less advantaged and they too are performing better than many similar students in the state. These two criterions allowed our school to be eligible for national judging and ranking. The final step in the national ranking looks at college readiness based on Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate test data benchmarks for success. Though we are happy with the national ranking we will continue to strive for excellence in education.
