The first school, established in 1910 in the Marbury community, was a three-teacher school. By 1917, a building was built for the high school, and the faculty had increased to seven with fifty students. A grammar school building that stood near the cemetery burned in 1919. The high school became accredited in 1919. In 1930 a new high school was built in the location of the present Marbury High School. In 1934 some wings were added to the building to accommodate grammar school students. Grammar school students had previously attended classes on the second floor of the old bank building. Many students walked to school while others rode the train to get to school. On March 3, 1993, a tragic fire destroyed the sixty-three-year-old school building. A new school was built in the same place to house the Marbury High School and Marbury Elementary School. This school was completed and opened in September 1994. The new school included a computer lab, a science lab, and a media center in addition to the new classrooms, elementary gym, and office space. In August 2001, the elementary grades were rezoned to Pine Level Elementary School. In August 2010, the high school moved to a brand new facility and the old building became Marbury Middle School. Marbury Middle School presently houses grades 6 through 8. Presently the school employs 30 faculty members and has approximately 450 students. The school now has three computer labs (2 Dell labs and 1 Mac lab), one computer in each classroom, and 12 computers in the media center; all of which are networked and Internet connected.
