    Overall Experience: This school is really great. The food is good most of the time, friends are easy to make, and school spirit is very high. If I could do it again, I would definitely choose this school because it also provides a great learning environment for the students; teachers are friendly and classes are never overcrowded.

    Teachers: Our teachers are basically average. There are some that do go above and beyond. However, there are some obvious ones that do not care much.

    Admissions: The application process is kind of long but very easy to answer. They stress high grades but accept some that aren't so high. To get financial aid, you should have high grades and not make a lot of money.

    Extracurriculars: Marantha has great extracurriculars available. My personal favorites are the sports teams. I participated in volleyball, soccer, and golf while attending Maranatha. Joining sports teams and clubs really help you create fellowship with others and make the most of your high school experience
