Discover This School

Marshall Elementary School is a small community school dedicated to providing a rigorous core curriculum in a positive learning environment. We are full K-5 Spanish Two-Way Immersion program. Our program provides native English speakers and native Spanish speakers the opportunity to become bilingual and biliterate, with the goal that students will be at grade level in both languages by the end of 5th grade. Our academic focus is on English and Spanish language development, as well as science and literacy. Acknowledging the importance that science will play in the 21st Century, Marshall has dedicated itself to become a Science Focus school. Students participate in environmental education opportunities, attend Mission Science Workshops, and participate in Oceans Month activities. Additionally, Marshall was awarded a grant that will bring 21st Century project-based learning opportunities into the classroom.

Students at Marshall Elementary School are high-achieving, joyful learners—and we actively engage them in the learning process. At Marshall, we believe in allocating resources according to individual needs. We aim to ensure that all community voices are heard, to hold students to high expectations, and to showcase and celebrate student work. We welcome and value parent, teacher, and community input to make collaborative decisions to increase student achievement and promote joyful learning. Our vibrant and growing Parent Teacher Association provides financial funding to support many academic programs.
