Marshall supports a Hybrid 1:1 program for all students. Middle school students use school owned iPads and Macbook devices. The Upper School employs a "BYOD" model where students bring their own laptop with them to school each day.
Marshall provides school-owned Apple devices for middle school students.
Students are required to bring a laptop computer. A Macbook running Mountain Lion is recommended, but a new PC running Windows 7 or 8 is also acceptable. It is expected that this new machine should last students for their time in the Marshall Upper School.
Most work on the laptops will take place in the “cloud,” but due to the cross-platform approach, the student version of Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) is required. A complete list of required and non-required programs is found here.
Purchase and Maintenance
Upper school students and their families are responsible for purchasing and maintaining the laptops. The school recommends families purchase a three-year warranty. Since laptops are required, the expense can be included in the overall cost of a Marshall education that is used in determining regular financial aid awards.
