Head of School
Thank you for visiting the Marshall School website. We are excited when new visitors from around the world browse our pages (visitors from 28 countries visited our site this summer) and are thrilled when old friends reconnect to catch up on our latest news.
Marshall is a school of balance: we are proud of our rich Hilltopper history and traditions, we embrace the current era of educational reform and innovation, and we look forward to an exciting future with focus on matters of local, regional and global purpose.
Regardless of what brings you here today, we are glad you stopped by. We encourage you to take time to review our new initiatives including our 1:1 technology program, comprehensive international program, and student-driven honor code. For a glimpse of day-to-day life, be sure to visit our Parent Pass Blog, like us on Facebook, and view our YouTube Channel. After looking around we hope you will feel inspired to contact us for more information or schedule a visit to our beautiful 40-acre campus overlooking Lake Superior.
Founded in 1904, Marshall is the longest-standing high school in Duluth and the only independent (non-parochial, non-public) school north of Minneapolis/St.Paul. Like other independent schools, Marshall is mission-driven; we hold true to our core values, and we believe in education for a purpose. Our students thrive within a close-knit school culture that encourages them to become confident, creative, and independent thinkers. Our programs 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. We offer a safe, transformational, and stimulating education environment for students who thirst for more academic challenge and for students who benefit from individual support. Our Portrait of a Hilltopper outlines the skills, values, and habits we hope our students acquire during their time with us and use as they greet the world beyond our walls.
We are proud to have served the Duluth and surrounding Twin Ports community for 111 years, and are positioned for an exciting period of new growth and service. We invite you to follow our progress by subscribing to our monthly e-newsletter and visiting both our campus and our website in the future.
