Marion Harding High School

Marion Harding High School is a public high school in Marion, Ohio. It is the only high school in the Marion City School District. The school mascot is the Presidents (often shortened to Prexies) and is symbolized by an eagle named Warren G. They are currently not a member of any conference and are competing as an independent.

The school was named after Marion's most famous son, Warren G. Harding. The original school site is a mere 1/2 mile from the Harding Memorial, which is one of the largest presidential memorial located outside of the Washington D.C. area. In 2003, a new high school was erected with assistance of state funds offered for the replacement and/or upgrade of older school facilities. The old building now houses Grant Middle School.
