What makes Marshall amazing: talented and highly professional teachers, dedicated leadership, and a parent community/PTO with tireless volunteers! Their scores are #1, extra-curricular programs( Robotics, Spanish, Math 24) are first class, the art and music programs are phenomenal - fantastic art fair and best strings and chorus productions hands down. Mrs. Huebner, the principal, is the schools most cherished asset - she inspires the students and staff to be their best and that is why this school is THE BEST.

The education is good and the children have fun learning. The rating is not based on this, but the some faculty and leadership lack blatant common sense. We have repeatedly had issues with the faculty making accusations of incidents with our children, only to find 'opps! my bad' when simple questions are asked, like the last name to verify you have the right kid. Protect your kids if you go here, require they contact the psychologist to be present during questioning, or inappropriate questions could be asked. There is a reason the Students' Rights page is being put in the county handbook.

We moved to Marshall two years ago and we are so pleased with our experience here. Marshall is well known to be a very desirable school and they live up to their reputation. There is so much offered for students and they have a very strict policy about bullying. They work very hard to teach students good character skills and have been awarded for this. Their test scores also outshine most other schools in the area. I am so thankful we moved to this school.

Marshall Elementary is awesome. I have a daughter who went there K-5th grade and is now in 6th grade. My son is in K. All of the teachers are excellent. Parents are involved with their kids and there are many parent volunteers at this school. I have been very pleased with our experiences at Marshall. Best elementary school in Prince William County, hands down.

All schools can have good and less motivated teachers and this one is no different. They used to have a fantastic art teacher and the halls were always decorated with lots of it. Now, it's less upbeat, the teachers are screaming at the kids, and the moral isn't what it should be. Once they even cancelled the Fall festival for lack of parent involvement. Hmm..why do you think that is?

I have one son who has completed Marshall and one in the 3rd grade and can say I have no complaints. I can not thank the staff enough for all the help with my oldest who struggled in a lot of areas. I love the school and would never move to a different one.

Marshall's a good school. Not great. Still, good. Pros: They have many ways of keeping the kids interested in coming to school (some not particularly academic but that's okay sometimes). Also, the layout of the school and the almost pastoral setting is nice. CONS: There are 7 or 8 mothers at the core of the PTO activities who froze out parents who we're physically &/or financially unable to volunteer frequently. As such, students didn't get the benefit of some great ideas and support from some parents who otherwise would have contributed. Also, there are ALOT of children at the school - easier to slip between cracks. I'm glad we've moved on.

I am not happy with Marshall Elementary. One of my children is now in 5th grade and is so bored. They do absolutely nothing to challenge him. He never studies and has become disorganized thanks to awful third and fouth grade teachers. They complained about my child's behavior and never questioned why. They would say he is capable to doing the work. He of course was dong the work with no problem. All A's and a couple of B's. Handwriting is a B. The school is failing my child.

This is our first year at Marshall, our son is in first grade. We have been very pleased with no issues since the first day of school. This administration has a ZERO tolerance for unruly children.

This is our fifth year at Marshall and couldn't be any happier with the Staff and Teachers. The principal runs a tight ship and expects a lot from her teachers and in this day and age you have to; so I applaud her leadership. Keep up the great work Marshall!!

I could not be happier with a school. The office staff is so wonderful and helpful, the guidance counselors are fabulous, and the teachers are wonderful.

This is the 4th elementary my children have been involved with. Having attended one other ES in the area and subbed at others, Marshall is definitly one of the better around. The front office is friendly and welcoming. The lunchroom noise level in one of my only complaints, it's very loud!

I am beyond impressed with the staff, administration, and support services at Thurgood Marshall Elementary. It is truly a school where students come first and a superior education is paramount. Throughout the building laughter, smiles, and an evident joy for learning is reflected by students and staff alike. I have been in many schools during my children's elementary years and I find Thurgood Marshall Elementary second to none. I commend the teachers, administration, secretaries and other support staff for going above and beyond what most schools offer or provide. Before and after school clubs further enrich and challenge the students. I find the PTO and strong parent volunteer network, evident in the school on a daily basis, to be a further asset to the success of all students at Thurgood Marshall. Soar with pride and excellence Thurgood Marshall EAGLES!

I have been a parent for the past two years at Thurgood Marshall and I am very impressed with the administration, teaching staff, and the warm office staff. As a working parent it is hard to leave your child all day long and at Marshall I feel like he still has family around. The principal is warm and greets the students each morning. When I come into the office the staff always greets me with a smile and is very helpful. The teachers are fantastic. They go the extra mile to help the students where they need help. There are a lot of extra school activities for the children to participate in and I am very impressed with the security at the school.

The Marshall Elementary I know is a warm, educationally enriched learning environment. When you enter the doors you feel welcomed and can readily observe the outstanding education being provided to each and every student. Muliple programs within the school have been recognized both locally, statewide, and even nationally. Students and staff alike are proud of their accomplishments as they excell academically from the Kindergarten level to Fifth grade. The administrators, teachers, support staff, PTO, and volunteers should be commended for making Marshall Elementary top notch and one of the best a parent could hope for.

The Marshall Elementary that we knew from 2001-2005 is gone. Under new 'management', what was once a warm inviting learning environment has now been converted to a militant institution. The majority of the teachers are still A+ teachers and I feel for them because they have to deal with the inflexibility of the higher up. Also, I've had lunch with my child several times in the past two months and it's pretty bad that they pretty much expect the kids to eat in complete silence. So much for social skills...

It's a wonderful place for children to explore and learn. It has a very 'open door' policy with parents and the administration. Celebrating it's tenth year and still raising the bar on creating a complete academic environment for all to experience.

PTO active. Guidance and administrative staff supportive. Teachers are generally professional and nurturing. Parents are active volunteers. Lots of clubs through the year. Gifted program limited, but there are math and reading specialists that go into the classrooms.
