    All three of my children went to Marsh Kdg-5th grade. All three are honor students still to this day. One is at the High School and two are at Elston Middle School. They are pass plus students in Istep. Marsh Teachers must of did something right!

    My children have been going to Marsh for 3 Years and I have found that they have flourished acedemically and socially. The staff has been helpfull and kind. It's an all around great school for them to attend. Thankyou

    This school is a huge disappointment! Very chaotic. The children are wild and undisciplined resulting in the lack of teaching. The children are behind so they always start where they left off last year not where they should be... therefore they cannot pass the ISTEPS. It's obvious... take control of your school then your classrooms and teach up to the state standards! Nice people just not cutting it academically!
