The school currently holds a level III accreditation from PAASCU and is considered to be the largest educational institution to date in Marikina City.[1] This was the second school founded by the Marist Brothers in the Philippines; the first one was the Notre Dame of Cotabato in Cotabato City in 1948.

The Marist School Athletic League ran from its inception in 1967 to academic year 2012, when it was closed due to doping allegations. The Marist School Athletic League or MSAL is an annual and year-round sport competition.
