Marion High School has been a part of
the Marion Community School System for well over a century now,
and it has been housed at many different
locations over these years. The most recent building is located
at 750 W. 26th Street in Marion, Indiana. A growing student population
necessitated the new facility. The structure was built in the early
1960s with two major additions constructed in the late 1960s into 1970.
The new campus was first built as a second campus for Marion High School.
The old facility was slowly phased out and replaced by the new one. This
Marion High School campus facilitates the education of thousands of
students every year. At the time it was built, the "South Campus"
was a state-of-the-art facility, but the building at this location has now
been in use for almost 40 years, and it has aged much over time.
