    I found the principal to be very willing to address my concerns as a parent. She has excellent interpersonal skills and is willing to take time out of her schedule to meet with concerned parents. The teachers are cery involved. Overall a very good school and pleasant environment.

    Good teachers but horrible principal. My first child made it through the school without any contact with the principal but my second child was not so fortunate. A situation arose in the class and the Principal Dr. Allen refused to speak to any of the parents in the class and left the children upset and confused. The principal lacks the sensitivity judgment compassion and responsiveness for a person who is dealing with young children and their parents. I hope to never have any reason to deal with her ever again. If I had younger children I would send them to Seth Boyden.

    This school is fine for the typical child but beware if your child does not fall under the bell curve. I found the administration to be rigid and uncreative in addressing my child's needs therefore he will be attending Seth Boyden in the Fall.

    We love this school and especially the principal Dr. Allen. Our son will be in second grade in the fall and has had a great experience. Our daughter will start kindergarten at Marshall and we know she will thrive at this school.

    This is a darling school. The teachers are wonderful. If you have a child with special needs he/she will be taken care of and thrive. The inside of the school is happy and pleasant. I've been at Marshall for four years and I absolutely love it.

    I went for the 'Back to school night' yesterday. I was so impressed with the principle Dr Allen and her teachers. They are the passionate and sociable bunch. I am so happy the way the school is run with great leadership. Thumbs up!
