Beyond my expectations. My daughter was home schooled and now a sophmore at TMA. We have had a truly wonderful learning experience, complete with all sorts of college prep. programs, tutoring, parent workshops, mentorship and a host of clubs. The teachers and staff make this school a safe and high powered learning environment. For sure, the best kept secret of Washington, DC.

My daughter is a sophmore at Thurgood Marshall and I must say that I am still amazed at the structure and very challenging curriculum at this public institution. She is blossoming as a scholar and has been afforded some great opportunities to position her self to further her education at some prestigious colleges and universities. Who said you have to pay for a great high school education????

Thurgood Marshall Academy PCS is the best thing that happened to my son now a junior at George Mason. The teachers were excellent, the leadership was strong, and the academics were challenging and rigorous. Thank you for that family atmosphere and a safe learning environment.

Thurgood Marshall Academy is a beacon of hope east of the river. My son graduated in June of 2008 with excellent grades and the fundamental tools to succeed in college. He received a quality education and exposure to so many opportunities such as volunteering service hours in the community and the city. The teachers committed to the success of the students 100%.
