Marshall (Thurgood) High School2

According to the GradeEdge report gradeedge.com - Thurgood Marshall High scores a 4.8 out of 10 on Overall School Quality. Biggest issues are low SAT and AP test scores. To learn more about their academics and how they compare on language and music, student support, college advisors, etc, I'd suggest looking at the report created from district data on gradeedge.com.
I am the parent of twins here. They have excelled at Thurgood. There is lots of clubs, sports and different activities for them to be involved in here. They have maintained honor roll grades while taking honor classes. The teachers seem to really challenge these young bright minds. I am very happy with our choice of Thurgood!
the student is OK, but the teacher don't know what is schoolloop, after two years been on the internet. i talk to te principle, he said two years ONLY, give him more time, what kind of school with this team
For us, Thurgood Marshall Academic High School has been the perfect school: great depth and breadth of curricular offerings, reasonable class size, excellent teachers. There are lots of sports, clubs, and other extra-curricular activities. Marshall is also a San Francisco Math Circle site.
Thurgood Marshall is working hard to make the school one of the best in San Francisco. AVID and Dream Academy are just a few programs that are inspiring the students to have better than average grades to move on to four year colleges.
I am a senior at thurgoodand i've felt nothing but hope at this school. More and more the students try their best and that all that matters. Sure there are a few bad seeds, but doesn't every wise tree give a few bad seeds? I was considered a bad seed when i first entered thurgood, I had double english classes in my 9th and 10th grade year but in my 11th grade year i was in english honors. I worked hard and got what I deserved! All my years here, I have been involved in the polynesian club, people think you have to be polynesian to join but you don't many of the club members aren't polynesians! Marshall Students Are The Future! Schedule a visit and come on down you won't be sorry!
I am a proud parent of Junior at Thurgood. Starting with her discovery as a freshwoman three years ago of 'good teachers' and 'good students' I volunteered at the school in the mornings and evenings, joined the PTSA and Site Council. I found dedicated staff, sharp teachers, and a small school setting very supportive of my daughter. We have both worked hard to improve not only her grades, and what she learns, but to make sure we have good courses, our arts and sports programs back. Starting with 9 people on the PTSA, growing it to 40 her sophmore year, and 140, her junior year. Our goal this coming year will be 200. Thurgood is a small school (700 students) with a very diverse population. Opportunities to participate in leadership development, sports, and clubs are very good. My daughter has fun playing volleyball, and serving as her class president. Join Us.
