My daughter has been going to James Marshall for 2 years now - I am really considering on transferring her to a different school, I read the reviews before but I wanted to give the school and staff the benefit of the doubt since it is situational and different for everyone but I have actually experienced various problems with the staff throughout the two years that my daughter has been going to James Marshall. The principle along with her minions including Tina are complete joke! On one occasion, they had drop the ball when my daughter needed to be sent home due to an emergency but instead of following protocols, they don't know how to handle the situation, could be pure laziness or they just don't know what "professionalism" is - The reviews are here for a reason and the district need to do something about the principle and the staff here, do a random evaluation where they don't expect it and see what is really going on behind close doors. It is sad, when a situation arises and when confronted with the situation, they show no respect or concern for the students whatsoever - can you just imagine what it's really like when the kids are in a one on one conversation with them?

after reading other parents reviews of this school ;before my child started in 2012, I was did not have a positive way of thinking about this school. Once the school was put on the list of schools that could have been closed and I saw how the community of Rosemont rallied around this school to save it from being closed, I started to notice all the positive qualities. I hope for my two younger kids to receive Mrs Bridgham for kindergarten she is an awesome teacher and has taught my oldest a lot. I look forward to seeing my kids grow at this school.

I wish I had listened to all of the bad reviews about this school.If you send your child her,make sure you put a recorder on them or they risk being the target of abuse.If you file complaint,they will terrorize your child in retaliation & everyone up to the district will disregard proof/complaints,say you & your child are the problem,& tailor their lies to fit any new proof that is presented.Even the staff that knows what is going on who seem to show some guilt do not have enough backbone to protect the kids.They tell the kids that their parents can't help them & that it is not important how they feel about discipline.Any request you make to protect your child like requesting that you be present when child being questioned,they deliberately speak to them alone & threaten consequences for obeying parent over staff & coerce them into confessions.They administer unusual punishments not documented & then lie about their existence when questioned by press.Yard Duties scream in their faces.One staff member quit due to the treatment of students.My daughter has thrown up at night from dread of going there.There is no protection for students or parents rights.Pray one with ethics/power come

My 6th grader ended up being bused to this school when the elementary school she should have attended was full when we moved to Sacramento. Although I couldn't believe the School District was making her ride "the short bus" for 45 mins to and from school, we actually had a very rewarding experience with James Marshall. I have to say that the school Secretary was hands-down THE BEST at the entire school --- or any school my kids have ever attended. It was so apparent that she loves her job. She took my daughter to the cafeteria and found her a buddy to partner with for the day. My daughter's teacher was wonderful as well. She's off to middleschool this coming year, but we'll miss James Marshall.

Dangerous school! Children fight, cuss, and are rude to one another. Staff looks the other way. The principal is unprofessional, and demeans the children. She too,is very rude, with a negative attitude. Went to pu a friends kid from K, and they did not know me at all. I took her by the hand, and pulled her out of the line. NO ONE SAID A WORD. This school is not safe and secure for children. Awful school...awful staff.


Posted December 5, 2011

Horrible. My son was attacked by staff and then I was not notified till hours later. Your kids are not safe here!

At this school, it was a pretty lame elementary experience for me. There weren't a lot of extra-curricular activities. As soon as students found something fun to do, it would either be taken away or become regulated by the staff which ruined it. I remember being one of the "smart" students and being allowed to get ahead and move up in books like math. The teachers normally left us to learn all the stuff on our own without any help and I suffered from it. In 6th grade, I definitely wasn't ready to take on Geometry in Middle School. If it weren't for this, I would be in 2nd level calculus by now. It seemed like competitions between teachers/classes and quite often jealousy because some teachers were less loose than others. Sure the school actually earned education awards when I went but not it's way worse. If I were you, I wouldn't bother going here.


Posted December 8, 2010

We were involved with this school over the course of four years and finally gave up as it just got worse and worse. They are dealing with a challenging population with many kids having English as a second language and/or uninvolved parents. However, my biggest complaint is that they have become more and more punitive. When the bell rings everyone on the yard is required to freeze silently in place or they will be yelled at through a megaphone. If they are not quiet enough in the cafeteria, they will be yelled at through the PA system. The teachers seem harried and overwhelmed much of the time. Just a very negative environment compared to other elementary schools we've dealt with. I hope someone is able to come in and turn this school around.

I'd have to say I am not impressed with this school at all. This is the third school my son has attented, due to unforseeable moves, and this is the worst experience we have had with a school. The teacher shocks us all the time with his teaching abilities and techniques. We feel our child is not challenged enough nor does our child receive the attention he/she deserves from the teacher. The teacher went as far as to call my home to tell me that my child required too much of his attention and maybe I was not paying enough attention to my child at home. I wish I could transfer my child to another school for the next school year .. I am trying !

The teachers at this school are there to teach the children. They will go out of their way and spend their own money to teach the kids to the fullest of their ability. I attended James W. Marshall K-6. I met my now husband in the 6th grade at this school. Both of our boys now go to this school as well. There are only three of the same teachers that I had when I went there, but it has been a joy having my children experience the same teachers and the school. The campus has changed due to needed repair and a fire at one time, but the office and cafeteria are still original. The one thing that hasn't changed is the heart of the staff as a whole. They are all one big family. This is a very safe and awesome school with great ratings.

I moved my family up here in the begining of last years school year.(2005) And I was surprised how much further along these students were than at my kids last school. To make a long story short I have 2 boys in the school and I am enrolling my 3 year old daughter in their preschool. The teachers have high expectations for the students but it helps them to reach their full potential. Thank you

This school has a remodeled campus that unfortunately is covered mostly by concrete...Not very attractive. There are a lot of good teachers and a lot of caring people, along with a few that just don't seem to care as much. Overall, good but not stellar.

This school is great! The staff and teachers really care about the kids and not there for a job or a paycheck. I highly recommend this school to anyone moving into the area.

My daughter is in the third grade and loves every day at Marshall. We attend all the functions and find that the teachers, principal, and the environment is exactly what we would want from a school. The scores are high in achievement too!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
