To visit Marshall is to understand what schools should be about. We respect tradition, we believe in challenge, we meet the needs of our students, and we guide them on their journeys towards becoming their best selves. Inside each classroom, students drive the learning process: they plug in, they weigh in, and they own their experience. Our teachers fully commit to a career on the Hilltop; many have served the schools for decades and others join us specifically to work on our exceptionally collegial team.
Marshall has been recognized as a model school by the National Association of Independent Schools for our work to measure and increase student engagement. Teachers have led the charge to create a dynamic 21st century curriculum. The result is evident in classrooms, and in our engagement scores which keep pace with the finest schools in the country. Engagement is also evident in the hallways and on teams - our students are doers, and our participation rates--in music, in clubs, and in athletics--are truly exceptional.
Marshall also believes in learning for a purpose. We are a 21st century global school grounded in Midwest sensibility. Our founders vowed to train “wholly educated students” by “emphatically teaching honesty, integrity, discipline and leadership.” Those values are present in our mission today as we strive to develop ethical leaders for our ever-changing and global world.
Welcome to Marshall!
