The pride of the city is our schools. These include Marion County High School, Guin Elementary School & pre-school and Liberty Christian Academy. The city in an effort to prepare our children for the increasingly competitive high tech global economy decided to put a one cent sales tax in place. This tax has been very helpful by providing greater access to technology and the ability to enhance their skills in the math & science fields. Because of this commitment Marion County High School is now an Alabama Math and Science Initiative School. The city has given over a million dollars to the schools and they now have three state of the art computer labs with a computer to student ratio of 3 to 1, a fully equipped science lab.
