Upper School

Marshall’s Upper School experience presents a balance between academic challenge, co-curricular opportunity, achievement-oriented student culture, and a rich community of faculty and peers. Students are encouraged to be confident and independent thinkers by teachers whose energy and caring enrich the school. Small class sizes permit active participation, feedback, and engagement in a rigorous curriculum. Teachers and curriculum are flexible, setting challenging but attainable goals for each individual, and the exploration of unique interests and talents is encouraged.
