John Marshall High School Reviews
John Marshall is full of diamonds in the rough. There are several students, and hard working faculty members that would love to see our school stay open and continue to improve. However, the powers that be have decided, this school is being phased out and options of other programs are being considered to replace us.
Many teachers go above and beyond to meet the needs of the students. For example, several teachers adopt senior students to give them support for finish their high school career strong. We have a Steel Drum Band that is touring our local area providing fantastic music and fun. Our outdoors club plans to go skiing this winter and camping in the spring. Activities that our students would otherwise not be exposed to.
As a teacher of 22 years, I am very saddened to see the school as we know it close. Their are so many potentially positive actions that could be implemented which would better suit the needs of all stakeholders. As I rate our school, I am reminded of our potential. I enjoy our students, parents and colleagues I am involved with and wish the best outcome for all of us.
