The sun shines through the chapel windows, a few of our youngest students raise hands to shield the light from their eyes, the chamber choir ensemble greets us all by singing “You are the New Day.” With that, a chapel service opens the new school year and provides us with a quintessential Marshall moment. As the older students encourage the younger students to add their stories to Marshall’s wonderful history, I know this is the type of magic that makes us all proud to be a part of the Hilltopper family.
The ensemble, itself, is Marshall magic. Two members are from our international community and, although we are just weeks into the school year, this global group has already come together in harmony. Two members are wearing football jerseys and a third wears a t-shirt, celebrating the leadership of our football coach, who embodies the characteristics of the other great coaches who have helped shape our athletic program and its participants. A community is no more than a collection of its stories, and I am certain the young children at chapel will add a beautiful chapter to the compendium that is Marshall’s history and legacy.
For more than 100 years Marshall has been providing the Northland students with exceptional mission-driven academics. Like other independent schools we hold true to our core values and we believe in education for a purpose. Our students thrive in a close-knit school culture that encourages them to become confident, creative, and independent thinkers. We strive to keep students active and provide them with a variety of formal and informal learning experiences to foster their interests and help them discover new passions. Small class sizes and challenging, caring teachers support a positive atmosphere of learning. Is is a safe, transformational, and stimulating educational environment for students who thirst for more academic challenge and for students who benefit from individual support.
Choosing the right school is a crucial decision for families. Marshall is a difference maker. Whether you have been a part of our tradition for many years, or are just learning about the magic for the first time, welcome!
