    My oldest daughter is currently in her second year at Clifford Marshall. I have been impressed on all accounts. She has had wonderful teachers who stay in communication with the parents and truly demonstrate that they care about your child's education. The principal is visable friendly and engages parents in conversation. The Marshall holds movie nights and pasta dinners to help foster a sense of community and bring families together. The children also have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities and programs. I was nervous about her attending this school because of the Quincy Point area but any preconceived notion I had has been proven wrong. It seems the staff from the janitor lunch lady and secretary knows every child by name. I have friends whose children attend other higher ranking schools in Quincy and my daughter by far is getting more out of her education. I could go on and on but in general as a lifelong Quincy resident I have been impressed with my daughters education and overall school experience. A principal and staff that value the student make a difference.

    Clifford Marshall School represents what a great school is all about. The teachers love their students and applaud their strengths while helping to build up their weaknesses. It is a fabulous place to be!!!

    I really think this school gets a bad rap.When I moved to this area everyone kept telling me to look into private school. My daughter is now in the second grade and I can tell you she is way ahead of my friends children and some of them live in Braintree.A+ to the teachers and all the staff at Clifford Marshall.

    My daughter has had 2 fantastic teachers at the Marshall - we actually moved her from Catholic school and frankly think the education she is getting at the Marshall school is superior to the one we were paying a considerable amount for. There are a considerable amount of activities and after school programs. All of the staff have been most excellent in all of our dealings with school.

    I have always been more than satisfied with the teachers and programs at Clifford Marshall Elementary School. My son is now in the Fourth Grade there and I am only sorry that this school does not continue to the upper grades. Both my son and I will miss this school.

    Clifford Marshall school has been the best school for my son. They work with him one on one very well. He goes to the BGD classroom and he needs one on one. Mr. Bloomer is all ways there as a principal and the teachers are very good at with my son also Ms. Jackson and Ms. Lapointe are very good with my son when he has problems.. The staff at Clifford Marshall are always there when you have questions about your child.
