John Marshall students will be provided with high quality business and educational experiences. An atmosphere that prepares students to become citizens with unlimited capacities to meet the challenges of the future and successfully compete in a global society will be a priority. Yet the importance of a safe and nurturing environment where all are treated with respect and dignity will also be emphasized. Expert instruction and varied learning experiences to stimulate independent and critical thinking skills, effective oral and written communication, and intellectual curiosity will be provided in all subjects. Moral growth will be encouraged through the participation in a variety of cultural experiences.
Student achievement is the primary focus of our school. Utilization of state of the art technology is fundamental to learning at John Marshall High School. Commitment from the students, the community, the parents, and the faculty is a shared responsibility in the development of our success. Challenging expectations increase student performance. Each individual at John Marshall High School has a fiduciary responsibility for the funds handled by the school. We believe that each dollar spent should be related to student achievement. Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning. Students’ self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect for other students.
