the mission of MarshallSchool is to educate students to become global citizens who demonstrate strong academic habits, respect, compassion, integrity, self-discipline, and intellectual curiosity.
As seniors prepare to leave MarshallSchool and enter the next phase of their lives, they have a chance to work independently during their last two weeks of high school, pursuing their passions through the Capstone Project.An optional program for eligible seniors, the Capstone Project encourages students to breathe life into the values of the School’s mission by designing, developing, and implementing their own service-oriented program of career exploration, creative activity, study and research, or community involvement.
Taking the mission of MarshallSchool as their guide, and drawing upon their previous experiences as student-members of the Marshall community, seniors offer their skills and services to the wider community while also extending their vision of themselves and their place in the world.Through this program, seniors have a chance to learn and do more than is possible within the classroom and school environment.The Capstone Project is meant to be the pinnacle–or capstone–of a Marshall senior’s high school achievement.
Seniors involved in the Capstone Project may follow one of five possible Paths:
the Career Exploration Path,
the Creative Path,
the Research Path,
the Skill-Building Path,
or the Extended Service Path.
Each of the first four Paths includes a relevant Community Service Component designed by the student, while the fifth Path, Extended Service, consists solely of Community Service.All Capstone Project activities must be uncompensated, feasible, legal, ethical, safe, and consistent with the mission of MarshallSchool.
