    Thurgood marshall cares about their students. The teachers not only work with their students but with the parents too ! there are always fundraisers to give the students opportunities to go on day trips------to learn ! my granddaughter learned so much in kindergarten---her teacher was so exceptional. She made learning fun. And now her 1st grade teacher is doing the same. Teaching is a commitment and the teachers at thurgood marshall all have the same goal. To give each child a chance to learn to read write arithmatic etc. But most of all to teach each student to get ready for the rest of their life !

    My daughter is a kindergarten student here and I am very pleased with her teacher Mrs. Hoskins. Not only is she very motivated to teach she has enreiched my daugheter's life in the classroom. Although my daughter is an excellent student she is Mrs. Hoskins recognizes her srengths and weaknesses if there are any as well.

    My daughter was an overdraft student from a previous school and was placed at Thurgood Marshall and I could not be happier! Her teacher is great and my daughter has learned so much and is very excited to go to class every day.
