    THIS IS AN EXCELLENT SCHOOL MY GRAND CHILD ATTENDS THIS SCHOOL. I HAVE KNOWN THE LAST 3 PRINCIPALS THEY ALL WORKED HARD and care about our children

    I am a Former Student of Thurgood Marshall and I honestly feel that this school has declined tremendously since I attended this school. My younger brother now goes there and there are a lot of issues that still need to be handled but over all the staff does care about the kids.

    I did not care for the principle Mrs. Pearsall. I am glad she got fired she simply bite the hand that was feeding her.

    Because the kids at Thurgood Marshall need lots of help and deserve to receive some and because the teachers there are the best and do what they can to help the students but need more financial support. Many of the teachers spend a lot out of their pocketbook each year for the kids.

    Thurgood Marshall is a wonderful school and a caring environment. When you enter the building you get a good vibe about the school staff and students. You can tell that the students are taught to respect the staff the school and themselves. You can also tell that the teachers enjoy what they do and the students know that the teachers care about their well being.This is why Thurgood Marshall is a great place to work!!!

    I love Thurgood Marshall because it is a school that is an extension of the students' home. The teachers are very caring and nurturing to our students. We love to see them coming to school. The teachers work together and demonstrate great character that serves as a model for the students.

    All four of my children have gone to this school at one time or another. When my children first started attending Marshall in the late '90's it was a fantastic school. It has since declined. I don't feel that the teachers have the same tenacity that they once had. My youngest child gets away with murder. Whereas my oldest had they tried the same things would have been stopped in their tracks and put in their place. Step up to the plate Marshall or you could be next on the chopping block.

    I went here for first forth and fifth grades I think that if you want a really disciplined child that this is the school for you. the classes are excellerated and non excellerated I myself was in the excellerated class and the work would be really hard if you have a large load beacuse if your in this class you will have to be on top and beyond your game. You will be tested at a higher level than you would in a nonexcellerated classroom. the work is way harder and you would have to really concentrate on what your doing.Your child can learn alot but they have to handle it.
