Marion Elementary School is a Preschool through 8th Grade building with one class of each grade level.  We pride ourselves on quality teacher to student attention, solid curriculum and instruction, a strong anti-bullying program, music and band opportunities and extra-curricular programs.  Our school motto is, "Striving for Success through Responsibility, Teamwork, Great Attitude and Respect."

Our goal is to foster a strong partnership with students, parents, staff and the community to prepare our students for their next grade level, life skills, and prioritize what is most important.  We strive to create a positive school environment where students can build friendships, build fundamental skills, have fun and surround themselves with positive role models who will guide and support them throughout the school year.  Marion Elementary has produced excellent state testing scores and student preparation for academic success.
Our school has a quality reputation in our community, the Flathead County and the state.

We encourage parent involvement within our school, events, programs and in our PTO (Parent Teacher Organization).  Student attendance is a key component of a successful school experience.  It sets the table for consistency in a student's daily life as well as a lifelong routine and commitment to school and eventually work down the road.  

Bussing is available through Marion School.  Please contact us at 406-854-2333 with requests or questions.  
We have a community Library on site that is open year-round and observes most school holidays.  

We believe that communication is the key to a successful partnership with our school and the families that we serve.  During the school year, you will receive newsletters from the school, updates will be on our school website, and we update our Facebook Page, where you can send a message to staff or comment on the page (find us by searching Marion School).
