With our 8th graders presenting their own student-directed research projects as part of Genius Hour, we thought it would be a perfect chance to roll out a little student-led journalism. Today we feature Marshall 6th grader Luke, who was excited to flex his writing muscles in this breakdown of the Genius Hour experience.
Welcome to Marshall School.
The mission of Marshall School is to educate students to become global citizens who demonstrate strong academic habits, respect, compassion, integrity, self-discipline, and intellectual curiosity
"We are learning and working regularly with students younger and older than us, so compassion is really incorporated into everything we do with each other. It is also demonstrated by the teachers we work with and in the different projects we do together." Luisa, 8th grade
Marshall welcomed visiting students and teachers from Vietnam this past Februray. International exchanges like this one enhance our students' abilities to interact with other cultures and ideologies.
"We have freedom to research and choose curriculum that fits our learners and is proven to be most successful. We have a supported freedom here to try new things." Ms. Kiero, 5th & 6th grade teacher
Access and Involvement
More than 90% of students participate in one of 20 different athletics options, and students have access to more than 40 clubs and student organizations.
"We have individual learning experiences. There are options in every classroom that I can find that fit me." TJ, 10th grade
Community and Relationships
"I know I am building relationships here that will maximize my potential. There is great support here. They help me with the decisions I am making during this time, and I know I will be connected to them forever." Keyur, 9th grade
"As a new student at Marshall I have found a community that is the most kind and accepting that I could've imagined." Bree, 9th grade
Recent graduating classes have been offered an average of $5 million in scholarships
Our students take part in many self-directed and interactive projects, from Genius Hour and Maker's Fairs to literature-based Minecraft.
