    Both of my children attend James Marshall. My son started out with speech therapy at James Marshall at the age of 3. I have found the teachers and staff at James Marshall to be caring and devoted to their students. They are very helpful with any questions or concerns I might have which makes me feel good about my children attending this elementary school.
