The mission of Marshall Elementary School is to inspire
and prepare every student to love learning, achieve ambitious goals and make positive contributions to the world. Our vision is that Marshall students are actively engaged in learning within a collaborative school climate and culture built on a sense of belonging through relationships, informed by a lens of equity, and rich with academic and social emotional learning opportunities.
SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL APPROACH TO LEARNING
Marshall Elementary has a schoolwide focus on social and emotional learning (SEL). Creating high-quality learning experiences means educating the whole child by meeting his or her social, emotional, and academic needs. Through this process, children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions. With strong social and emotional skills, our students will be able to set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
Here at Marshall, we are proud of the opportunities we have created for our students to succeed academically. Marshall has a strong relationship with Reading Partners, as we house one of the largest centers in the district. In addition, our school offers an after-school leadership program called Community Action Project, which will culminate in end-of-year student leadership debates. We also focus on individualized student learning, as our curriculum incorporates small group breakouts, allowing students to work directly with their teachers on specic areas of need for 15-20 minutes per day.
FOCUS ON EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Marshall has a strong pre-kindergarten program which has greatly benetted the community. This program helps acclimate students to a classroom setting, places them on a track toward early literacy and creates a solid educational foundation for students across a variety of subjects.
