About Marathon Central School District
The Marathon Central School District is composed of the Village of Marathon, the Town of Marathon, and the surrounding townships. It is situated approximately 30 miles north of Binghamton and fifteen miles south of Cortland on Interstate Route 81. The community is primarily rural, encompassing some 102 square miles. The District has approximately 750 students, 400 in the elementary and 350 in the junior/senior high school. Approximately a quarter of the students live in the village itself and the rest live up to 15 miles from school. A dedicated staff of professionals and para-professionals supports these students.
In Marathon, a stable long-term population has fostered a strong sense of community that supports programs such as the local library, local churches, and community service organizations. The community spirit has promoted a sense of commitment to the school district, which serves as a community center and a source of pride for all, including senior citizens and rural residents. There is a shared sense of the significance of local history, the importance of families, and the involvement of people of all ages in the community and the schools.
A well-developed Technology Plan guides the implementation of technology use in the classrooms. The graduation rate is consistently above 90%.
