My daughter had a positive, safe, and well rounded experience at Marshall. Students were very accountable for behavior and academics, and my daughter made nice gains socially and academically here.

My kids have had great experiences at the school, both socially and academically. There are a couple of teachers who should have chosen another profession, but the majority of them are caring, creative, and devoted to the kids.

I like the principal, but he seems to be either unable to control his teachers, or has his hands tied by the district or union, because SEVERAL of the teachers there are REALLY bad, including one who was suspended for saying the "f" word to a student! I would also stay away from the parent group. The president seems to run it with the intention of benefiting her kids, and has special interests that are NOT in the best interests of the kids in the school. If you are lucky, your kid will get good teachers; if not, good luck. That, however, seems to be true of all the schools in the district. Each principal seems to run their schools like their own private fiefdom, with absolute power. Not a great idea for a district that calls itself "world class;" if they cannot guarantee consistency in instruction, discipline, etc., they are redundant.

Staff and faculty take a personal interest in the students. The students have many opportunities to participate in various activities. Communication with parents via Skyward Family Access is great and improving each year.

They integrate everyone in the class room in learning and use alternative teaching styles which have proven to work better than the standard.
