Marion Local High School is a public high school located in Maria Stein, Ohio. It currently has roughly 320 students enrolled. The students are from several surrounding communities, including Cassella, St. Rose, Osgood, Chickasaw, St. Sebastian, Yorkshire, and Maria Stein. These communities were served by a series of local one-room school houses that still stand in Chickasaw, St. Rose,St. Sebastian and Minster. In 1922 a 2-year high school was established in Maria Stein and in 1930 a 3-story brick school (named St. John's School) was completed directly across from St. John's Church. In 1955 the Marion Local Consolidated School District was established and charged with strengthening the educational opportunities for students in the 6 member communities. The Marion Local School District built a new high school, the Marion Local High School, in Maria Stein, Ohio in 1957.


Marion Local is a member of the Midwest Athletic Conference. They have captured more than 50 league championships in various MAC-sanctioned sports since 1973.
