As a parent I do not recommend this school to anyone. There is a huge lack of communication between faculty and the parents about what is going on with their child. They are quick to call home after a situation has escalated to far but not about the progress children's grades during the semester. It is not until report cards are given that I am made aware that my child is falling behind and not when the problem is arising so that me as a parent and the teacher can discuss the steps that need to be taken to get my child the help they need. They don't really care about helping the children. If they did they would be more involved with the parents as well.

As a former teacher of the school, I cannot in good conscious recommend it. There are many things wrong with the school. However, most of the issues have nothing to do with the teachers.

I am a Former Student of Thurgood Marshall and I honestly feel that this school has declined tremendously since I attended this school. My younger brother now goes there and there are a lot of issues that still need to be handled but over all the staff does care about the kids.

I did not care for the principle, Mrs. Pearsall. I am glad she got fired, she simply bite the hand that was feeding her.

Because the kids at Thurgood Marshall need lots of help and deserve to receive some and because the teachers there are the best and do what they can to help the students, but need more financial support. Many of the teachers spend a lot out of their pocketbook each year for the kids.

Thurgood Marshall is a wonderful school and a caring environment. When you enter the building you get a good vibe about the school, staff and students. You can tell that the students are taught to respect the staff, the school and themselves. You can also tell that the teachers enjoy what they do and the students know that the teachers care about their well being.This is why Thurgood Marshall is a great place to work!!!

I love Thurgood Marshall because it is a school that is an extension of the students' home. The teachers are very caring and nurturing to our students. We love to see them coming to school. The teachers work together and demonstrate great character that serves as a model for the students.

All four of my children have gone to this school at one time or another. When my children first started attending Marshall in the late '90's it was a fantastic school. It has since declined. I don't feel that the teachers have the same tenacity that they once had. My youngest child gets away with murder. Whereas, my oldest had they tried the same things would have been stopped in their tracks and put in their place. Step up to the plate Marshall or you could be next on the chopping block.

I went here for first,forth and fifth grades I think that if you want a really disciplined child that this is the school for you. the classes are excellerated and non excellerated I myself was in the excellerated class and the work would be really hard if you have a large load beacuse if your in this class you will have to be on top and beyond your game. You will be tested at a higher level than you would in a nonexcellerated classroom. the work is way harder, and you would have to really concentrate on what your doing.Your child can learn alot but they have to handle it.
