The Marietta City Schools system was created in February 1892, when 382 Marietta citizens cast votes in favor of a public school system for the city. The school bell rang for the first time on September 5, 1892, as 733 students attended class in four different locations. Joseph F. Stewart was the system's first superintendent.
