The school disregards 'normal' teaching that you will find in actual normal and high performance institutions. They force math and reading primarily onto the students in order to get them ready for end-of-year testing. The children do not learn proper grammar. The teachers let students take some tests off of notes or their text books. They preach they are against bullying, yet they only shrug it off when told it has happened (or if they witness it). The school is more worried about allowing the students to play on Google than actually learning the basics that will aid them in middle and high school. The school's PTA gives last minute notices about events (the day before or of) and expects parent involvement. They allow too many guardians and friends of guardians in and out of the school during operating hours (some even have criminal records for violence and/or PTSD).

In my opinion Marshville Elementary principal is doing a great job at providing the best education possible for the students there. I am really content with the test scores from last year and hopefully this year the scores are even better. It is not only the staff at Marshville Elementary that makes education important, more parents need to get involved with their kids education and safety at school. If you are concerned parent at Marshville Elementary make an effort to speak with the pricipal because your input really makes a difference in your child's education.

My opinion of Marshville Elementary is quite the contrary. Our new prinicpal has done wonders for the education focus of the school. For the first time in several years, the school met AYP and it was just her first year there. I think great things are coming. I am very pleased with the changes that have been made. I know that the education and safety of the students there is being addressed each and everyday. It is a very comfortable feeling now.

I am a concerned parent. This school is well below average. They focus more on raising money for the school, and EOG prep more than education. The principal has decided that there will be no field trips outside of Union County. One of the places the children will visit is the corn maze (patch) LOL. I can't afford at this time to move my children and I hate it with a passion. The no child left behind is a joke and so is this school. The only problem is no one is laughing that lives here.

This school aims to the mid-low level student so if your child is advanced this is probably not the school for them.
