Our Core Beliefs

  We will:

  Establish a system within the school that fully ensures the consistent implementation of effective instructional practices across all classrooms.


  Establish a system within the school that fully ensures students who are academically at risk are identified early and are supported by a process that provides interventions based upon student needs and includes procedures for monitoring effectiveness.


  Establish a system within the school that fully ensures school staff members monitor attendance and student participation in the learning process and respond with classroom and school-wide interventions when students are chronically absent or disengaged.


  Establish a system within the school that fully ensures professional development is focused, strategic and implemented with fidelity.

Carla R. Glover~ Principal

The Vision of the John Marshall School is one in which all learners grow and succeed in a school community that values and accommodates diversity. We believe our students are our greatest resource and therefore entitled to a high quality education. We adhere to the belief that it is the responsibility of the school, parent, and community to create a safe, caring and respectful environment that nurtures a student’s self-esteem, fosters problem solving, creates life-long learners, and produces productive citizens who are positive contributors to society.
