Principal Ball Welcomes you to Marietta High School
Home of the Blue Devils!
With honor and enthusiasm, let me be the first to welcome you to Marietta High School; home of the Blue Devils! Marietta is a thriving, comprehensive high school where every student belongs and can
experience success. Through rigorous classroom instruction and a caring faculty, we embrace the
challenge of educating, nurturing, and motivating all students for success in school and beyond.
My unwavering resolve as your new Principal is to ensure we are all working to graduate life-long
learners who are prepared to maximize college, career and life opportunities. By providing a safe,
secure and welcoming environment, we will be able to accomplish our goals and make memories that
last a lifetime.
Students at Marietta High School will get the highest level of support provided by a stellar faculty who
cares deeply about kids. We have set a goal to improve timely school-to-home communication through
a multitude of mediums including phone calls, informational meetings, email, and newsletters.
Additionally, the MHS homepage will undergo some upgrades in order to provide a one-stop-shop for all
things Marietta. Stay tuned, as I will be taking over the @MariettaGAhs Twitter handle so I can share
and celebrate all of the amazing things our Blue Devils are accomplishing.
We want our community involved in the educational process and we welcome you to be an active
member of your child's learning team. Like you, we want the best for your child and we are willing to
work as smart and as hard as need be to maximize your child's experience at Marietta.
I challenge every student to take the most rigorous courses we offer. Take full advantage of our world
class International Baccalaureate program and College Board Advanced Placement classes. Explore our
robust Career Pathways and Fine Arts programs. Get involved in extracurricular activities as a
participant or a fan. Lead with your heart and explore our new initiative focused on community service.
Giving back has always been a part of Marietta’s long tradition and this year we plan to broaden our
opportunities to serve our school and community.
I encourage everyone to learn about and visit the Marietta Student Life Center (MSLC). Get to know the
amazing staff who are there to help with academics, health and wellness. Our Professional Counselors,
College Advisor and new Scholarship Coordinator can help develop a plan in an effort to prepare our
students to learn, earn and serve.
We are excited about the positive contributions Marietta students will make in the classroom, on the
athletic field, in the arts and serving our community. Thank you in advance for your support!
With the ever present determination of growing and improving.
Kindest Regards -
Keith L. Ball, MHS Principal
