Inspirational instructors. Motivated students. High academic standards. A close-knit community where you can be yourself. It's Marshall.
We are very proud of our mission statement.
The mission of Marshall School is to educate students to become global citizens who demonstrate strong academic habits, respect, compassion, integrity, self-discipline, and intellectual curiosity.
We are even more proud to be an organization that genuinely tries to live up to these lofty goals.
We do this by constantly challenging ourselves to think about ways to get better at what we do.
This year, we are preparing to integrate new technology into our teaching and learning. New tools in foreign languages and mathematics are allowing students and teachers to focus in more deeply on individual learning needs and tailor their curriculum to support and challenge each student. Faculty are also experimenting with new communication tools that will allow for greater collaboration among students and more flexibility in use of class time.
Forward thinking schools today are aggressively exploring how new technologies can help students become more self-directed and creative -- skills that promise to be critical for success in college and beyond. The factory model of school is giving way to the information model. We don’t need students (or workers) who blindly follow step-by-step directions of their teachers (or bosses). Instead, we need students (and workers) who can manage their own time, take initiative to solve problems, adapt to new situations, and collaborate in the real and virtual worlds.
Marshall has a proud history. What made Cathedral great in 1904 makes Marshall great in 2012:
With your support, we can continue these traditions while at the same time adopt new tools to best prepare our students for an increasingly complex, interconnected world.
