Extra-curricular activities include: fine arts for vocal/instrumental music and thespian activity, National Honor Society, Quiz Bowl, forensics, debate, and numerous student organizations. For athletes, the district fields teams in football, cross-country, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track, baseball and golf.
Highlighting the facilities are two buildings built as a partnership with the City of Marion. A Sports Aquatic Center houses the gymnasium, indoor pool and walking track. The Performing Arts Center is the perfect 550 seat venue for both school performances and community events. These two venues have solidified the linkage of school and city in the minds of the community. Both the City and USD408 work hand-in-hand to provide the best educational opportunities possible.
