This is an amazing school with a wonderful staff! Every staff member who is there cares about every child, and they work really hard to help each child be successful! Mrs. Sheward has been the principal the past couple years, and she is absolutely wonderful and full of ideas on how to help kids succeed.
As a parent, I wanted the very best for my children. I was quite nervous about Marshall after reading some reviews on here and hearing some things in the news. Ever since they got a new principal, things seem to be going great in the school. My child finished the school year a level ahead of where he needed to be in reading and excelling in math. The teachers and staff do their best to ensure the kids get a quality education. The PTA is also great and does excellent work for the kids. I would suggest that the school allows for an extra field trip or two and parents get into the classroom and more involved but overall, I have been pleased with the staff and curriculum.
We were very dissatisfied with this school. Their staff was not supportive of my child's special learning needs. It appeared to us the staff did not believe the doctors diagnosis and attempted to followed their own learning plan. Our child became very upset and stressed over school. We ended up moving to a different public elementary school in the area.
My son has been attending Marshall for the past two years. I find the principal, teachers and staff friendly and supportive. I am in the school 2 to 3 times a week and am overly impressed by the staffs' commitment. The staff is continuously learning and implementing new strategies to best teach our children. I have never seen a lack of supervision in this school. My son has several students with special needs in his classroom and the are give multiply opportunities to be successful by the teachers using various teaching tools and strategies to individualize their instruction. My son wants to go to school everyday! He is learning and loving every minute of it!!
I am very happy with Marshall Elementary. My son has been going there for the past couple of years and they have kept me in the loop of everything that goes on with him. I have had no problems with being involved. He has become more open, talkative and is learning alot. I am glad that he is going to school there.
i am very unhappy with this school. they have poor supervision, they do not involve parents properly, if at all. they give very little information about their school and are not accommodating to students needs.
With special education as my childs primary education, I have wavered on This area. Lack of propper supervision, individual needs not being met, and being passified as to not rock the boat. I am unhappy!
Our child has had the opportunity to be in an advanced reading program and the school places the children at the appropriate levels. There is a music program, library, and physical education. Excellent teaches from kindergarten through second grade. The school also teaches the children respect and diversity. I have been happy with Marshall Elementary. Not much opportunity for a child that is ahead of the class but not ready for a HiCap program.
This principal is never available for parents. In three years I was never able to arrange a meeting with her. We rented in this area and when we bought I was relieved to be away from this school. The students are undisciplined and anything goes.
my children were new to marshall ele. this year and we were all made to feel not only welcome but as involved as the other parents who had been there all year. i am impressed with this school. and most importantly my children are too. no more debates about wether or not they will go to school. i cant keep them home!
