this is the worst school ever and the most strict school , there is no freedom what so ever ! the principal gets people in trouble all the time for the LITTLEST things , they care more about an untucked shirt than education if u can , DO NOT send your child here they will hate it ! SO STRICT
This is an amazing school! You get weekly emails from the principal and teachers about the upcoming week. The teachers are loving and provide a great education for the kids. The principal is amazing and loves his job. The schools mission is to feel loved and respected and to have 100 percent customer satisfaction. Treating others the way you would want to be treated is another big deal at Marshall. There are many activities year round. There are too many to list. A lot of them are lead by the kids. No new good idea is ever turned down. The teachers and principal encourage a lot of community service and having a giving spirit. If you want to go to a school with that strong community feel and a great education with a loving staff this is the school for you.
My son went to this school for just about 1 year before I moved and yanked him out. My child is a military son, therefore the school made money just by having him there. From the 1st day of 6th grade there were issues. There were fights at the bus stop and on the bus, the bully's on the bus and in the school were just allowed to act like idiots. My complaints went ignored. My child was told to suck it up. The school did not honor their commitments to the children or to the parents! I believe that the principals unfairly handled every situation placed in front of them. This was extremely unfair for the children who did try and attended everyday, and for the teachers who actually tried, but had to deal with unruly/ criminal children.
I think that John F. Kennedy @ Marshall is a good school. But they have a lot of striked rules there. My daughter goes there, she said that she doesn't like having to tuck in her shirt all the time. I have been there once with my child and. But on the other hand it can be a good school for our children
