I am in seventh grade and have been to Marsh K-5. All the teachers were wonderful. My kindergarten teacher Mrs. Karen Truax was very comprehensive towards my learning and I am now in the Gifted program at West Middle School.
My son in a kindergartener at Marsh and so far I have been very impressed. I have spoken to the principal and several teachers and they are all very encouraging and seem to love their jobs. The only thing I would try to work on is the lunch hour. It is early and (so I hear) the kids are expected to wear their coats while they eat lunch so they can go straight out for recess.
Marsh has a wonderful faculty and staff. It's a great school with lots of parent involvement. They have a lot of resources for low students but nothing for advanced students. There are plenty of extracurricular activities.
I am so pleased with the parent participation. They really help out and enable the principal and teachers to do their best. Also - this school has the best 2 secretaries in the world. They care they are organized work hard never complain and really care. I feel very lucky.
My kids are doing great at this school the teachers really work well with the children.
