The Marshall Upper School college preparatory program prepares students to be leaders in their communities, facilitators of their life-long learning experiences, and contributors to a more just and empathetic world. Educators create learning environments that inspire, broaden perspective, form connections, develop agency, and build community. A learning model that incorporates high academic standards and student-centered learning develops students’ abilities to solve problems, communicate effectively, think curiously and creatively, become engaged and ethical citizens, and develop agency and resiliency.
The upper school experience is intentionally built to engage students and meet them where they are at, both academically and social-emotionally. The upper school community strives for students to have authentic and meaningful connections with other students, with their teachers, and with other community members. Students learn to think critically, work collaboratively, act courageously, and live compassionately. Through a variety of learning experiences, students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the diverse perspectives and experiences of those around them.
