I attended Marshall Elementary School when I was a little girl. I finished all grades there. I was not able to attend the 6th grade because I had already signed up to a middle school and that is where I am now. I am now going to start 8th grade this year of 2013. Marshall is a great school to let your children go to. They experience so many new things!! Honestly the teachers are fantastic. I absolutely loved this school!! I lived in South Glen Apartments also another great place so getting to school wasn't a trouble at all. I've heard that Marshall has changed a bit since I left but it was the only elementary school I ever went to and I'm glad I went there.
Marshall Elementary School is a public middle school in Tulsa. The principal of Marshall Elementary School is Amy Putman. 435 students attend Marshall Elementary School and identify mostly as Multiracial, American Indian/Alaskan Native, and Native American or Native Alaskan. 99% of the 435 students here have subsidized lunches. The student to teacher ratio at Marshall Elementary School is 14:1. Evangelistic Temple School is one of the nearest middle schools.
|American Indian/Alaskan Native||4%||%|
|Native American or Native Alaskan||4%||11%|
|Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander||0.5%||%|
|Students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch program||99%||81%|
This is the worst school ever. They have their own agenda and oftentimes it is not in the child's best interest.
My 4 year old son started the special ed program for a speech delay when he was 3. The teachers are the greatest and really care about the kids. The pricipal and office staff are very friendly and get to know the kids by name. Pick up and drop off is a nightmare which I find to be the only major downfall. Busses are limited probably due to the number of students living within walking distance. The good is when starting during the 2008-09 school year my son only spoke about 15 words. Within 3 months he was talking your ear off and continues to improve daily. He loves to go to school every day. Also there are activities for parents and kids on a regular basis like movie nights and help for parents (learning english) which I think is very important.
No bus service; drop off and pick up of children is a traffic nightmare; school ignores parents' wishes; not enough slots for children's activities and intercession. If they are going to have a program it is my opinion that all children should be allowed to attend instead of the school picking and choosing.
I personally think that Marshall Elementary School has gastly improved since the late 1980's when I myself attended there as a young child. I am very proud of children of how much they are learning and enjoying going to school everyday; and also how wonderful the teachers' and staff are to both the students and parents' as well!
In Nov of 2006 I got custody of my little cousins and sent them to Marshall Elem. The boy 9yrs old is in special ed classes and started to get into a lot of trouble in classes and @ home. They for months worked very close w/us and tried very very hard to give suggestions and discipline to him. I will forever appreciate that and have nothing but good things to say to people about Marshall Elem and to Mrs. Whisenhunt and Mrs. Herman I have a special thank you for all your help and patience with him. The little girl I have went to Mrs. Baxter's class and loved every minute of it and her.
