Marathon CSD Mission



​The Marathon Central School District will excel at graduating citizens who are college and career ready and able to pursue unlimited possibilities locally and globally.

Marathon Highlights:

  • All students UPK-12th are provided with free breakfast and lunch.

  • Every UPK-6th grade student is supplied with school supplies at the beginning of each year.

  • During 2018-2019, 107 students in grades 7th-12th completed 1,563 hours of community service.

  • Our Agriculture CTE program was fully implemented during 2018-2019, offering 3 Ag classes and an Ag internship.

  • This past school year, staff attended 118 different in-house and out of district professional development workshops.

  • The district has 2 UPK classes, educating 36 students.

  • Class sizes at Appleby average 17 students per class.  Class sizes in the Junior/Senior HS are generally between 14-17 students, with lower class sizes for elective classes.

  • The High School offers 32 electives for students to choose from.
  • Marathon offers 18 college level courses through TC3. Last year, 37 of our 9-12th grade students accumulated 996 college credit hours.  If families paid for this out of pocket, it would have totaled $180,276. Three seniors graduated with their associate's degree from TC3 prior to receiving their HS diploma.


Respect and a Respectful Environment are paramount to our Jr./Sr. High and Elementary  Culture.  Please report any cases of harassment and/or bullying or any other concerns you have by any means you are comfortable with.  Your options could be but are not limited to: Filling out an incident form available in the office, filling out a DASA (Dignity for All Students Act) form from our "quick links" on the home page, speaking with any adults associated with the school (or a parent/guardian) or simply emailing, calling, or stopping into the office to speak with your principal.
