    We love the extensive library the strong anti-bully program wonderful and kind teachers progressive phys. ed program and great athletic opportunities. We are also thrilled with the gifted program and the attentive guidance counselors who are always available to help. But the best part may be the excellent education that kids receive attending this middle school. It's been a great experience for our children.

    couldnt be happier - many programs for all levels - advanced students have lots to pick from and are challenged by a competent qualified staff - top ratings in the state and country. Better than any private school we looked at hands down.

    Marshall Middle School is an EXCELLENT school! The teachers are very helpful and want the children to learn to the best of their ability. They have a magnificent array of extracurricular activities to choose from and an outstanding musical program. Although parent involvement is not very high there are some opportunities for parents to get involved with the school. I give this school an A+!

    Our kids have blossomed here. The classes are great the teachers have been great and the kids have responded well. High expectations have been encouraged. The office staff are very helpful and the school has obtained Top School ratings. There was a new principal this year and the transition seems to have gone well.
