Marshall (Thurgood) Elementary School 1

Horrible school! Some teachers are so mean to the kids. I don't know why they are still able to work with kids. I asked and was told they can't get rid of them because they are tenured. Tenured or not when someone is yelling at kids they shouldn't be allowed around them. Also the "new curriculum" is the worst ever! It confuses the kids more than anything. My kids absolutely HATE Thurgood Marshall, I can't wait to get them into Gateway Lab Charter School! There are a few really good teachers there, the principal Mr. Kennedy is great, he really cares. Classroom sizes are horrible sometimes 30+ to 1! If your child is gifted good luck getting them the education they need. Enrichment classes meet once a week for 30 minutes! That'll really help them out! Horrible horrible school! Do not voluntarily send you children here!

We love this school, I have had three children attend this school. I am very proud to tell where my children go to school. The teachers are wonderful and work with the children. As well as the staff is outstanding. Would highly recommend this school to anyone.

Marshall Elem is one of the highest ranking school in Delaware, Just as good as Newark Charter if you check the test scores. The teachers are wonderful and the staff is outstanding.

My son's in 3rd grade. He loves the school and not even once he has complained of anything and being a parent this is the best feeling one can have really. I'm so proud my son's a part of this school.

My sons love this school and are so happy to go each day. The staff are wonderful from the principal down to the cafeteria workers. Everyone takes the time to get to know each and every child. They let the children know that they are really interested in how they learn and are willing to give 120 % to every child. They listen to the parents and work as a team to help the child meet their goals.

I absolutely love this school it's faculty and principal. Everyone seems to have the best interest of our children at heart. My daughter has been going to this school since Kindergarten and she has had the most enthusiastic teacher's fostering her academic progress every year! I reccomend this school to everyone who asks!
