  • School Code

  • Founded in 1994 and located in the southeastern part of San Francisco, Thurgood Marshall Academic High School is a four-year college preparatory high school with a diverse student body.  Our highly dedicated faculty/staff and our active Parent Teacher Student Association believe that every Marshall student should be equipped with  the skills, knowledge, and values needed to make wise college, career, and vocational decisions. With seven class periods per day, students can choose an extra course in the daily routine to challenge themselves and expand their options. Students take core and elective courses, including honors/AP courses, which meet all UC and CSU admission requirements. Students enjoy access to a refurbished and expanded College & Career Center, a fully staffed Wellness Center, a Peer Resources Program, and a daily after-school tutoring program.

    Student life at Marshall is enhanced by a wide array of extracurricular, community service, and athletic activities during and after school. Marshall is committed to achieving school-wide learning that reinforces the importance of responsibility, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration in all fields of human endeavor. At Marshall, active pursuit of social justice is driven by a desire to change attitudes, provide opportunity to those who have historically been marginalized, identify and overcome institutional unfairness, and address and respect the needs of all individuals. Our school community seeks to engage all students and create a trusting, respectful environment that welcomes and challenges students. Everyone at the school strives to shape an academic culture that promotes high achievement for all students. We believe that Marshall should be a welcoming place for faculty, students, families—and that parents/guardians should be informed about their students' successes and struggles, school events, and the school's progress.

  • After School Programs

    Our Good Samaritan afterschool program offers a wide variety of student clubs and academic support. This includes Cooking Club, Skakeboard Club, English Club, tutoring, gaming, drumming, employment opportunities with our neighboring schools as a Leader In Training (LIT) and community involvement. This is a great way to connect with the school community and get to know your peers! 3:15 to 7:00 p.m. daily. Free to all TMAHS students
