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.
On Wednesday, September 13, we facilitated an important community conversation on the role and effect of digital technology on children and teens. Attended by over 350, the evening began with the showing of Screenagers, an award-winning documentary that "probes into the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts the messy struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction." The film was followed by a moderated conversation with Brandon Neblett, Upper School Principal, and associate professors from the Communications Department at UMD, Aaron Boyson and Ryan Goei.
