Marvin Ridge to host important Talk It Out Programs on April 1
START THE CONVERSATION.
STOP UNDERAGE DRINKING.
Through the effort and support of parents, teachers, and administration, Marvin Ridge High School is proud to host two Talk It Out program assemblies for our students on Wednesday, April 1. Below is information provided to us through the Talk It Out Initiative -
In May 2014, Governor Pat McCrory issued an executive order establishing the Governor’s Substance Abuse and Underage Drinking Prevention and Treatment Task Force.
Getting people in North Carolina to address the dangers of underage drinking — and to change behavior that many mistakenly believe is harmless — is no small task.
That’s why we’re committed to using every resource at our disposal and working with as many like-minded partners as possible, to talk about a problem that’s been swept under the rug for far too long. We can start the conversation. We can begin to change minds. We can protect North Carolina’s children. Together, we can solve this problem. We can make a difference.

Marvin Ridge Makes Science Olympiad History on (Super) Pi Day
Amidst stressed children, overzealous parents, duct taped projects, and an overwhelming smell of wood glue, champions emerged.
On Super Pi Day (3/14/15 = 3.1415) at UNC Charlotte, the Marvin Ridge High School Varsity Science Olympiad team made Maverick history. For the first time since its inception, the team placed first overall at the regional competition, defeating Science Olympiad powerhouses like Ardrey Kell, Myers Park, and North Mecklenburg. The varsity squad consists of 18 students, but over 60 students comprise the team.
Science Olympiad puts competitors' knowledge of science as well as their creativity to the test. Participants compete in test, lab, and building events with a partner. Test and lab events require participants to study up on their knowledge of the topic covered.
