Thurgood Marshall Middle School Learning Community,
is our mission to provide a learning environment that will enable each student
to reach his/her highest potential in a safe atmosphere. Our educational
approach will combine exploration and creativity, discipline and dedication,
teamwork and individuality. Students will achieve academic excellence through
participation in a strong core curriculum as well as elective and community
service programs. They will develop critical thinking and effective
communication skills and the ability to make reasoned moral and ethical
choices. They will practice tolerance in preparation for life in a
multicultural society. We will provide a strong guidance program that addresses
the physical, social and emotional needs of our students. Students will leave
us prepared for the broadest range of academic options in high school and
Thurgood Marshall Middle, we focus on the “Three R’s”
Rigor – We provide a rigorous curriculum that challenges our
students to not only meet, but also exceed the standards. Students are provided
opportunities to investigate topics by exploring moral and ethical issues and
perspectives. We not only challenge our students to advance academically, we
strive for them to become thoughtful productive citizens.
Relevance – As students explore the curriculum,
focus is given to how it is relevant to our world and global society. We are
constantly challenging our students to think and synthesize their learning to
find new solutions to tomorrow’s challenges.
Relationships – We believe in having
positive relationships with both students and their families. We know that the
teacher-student relationship is extremely important. We model for our students
how to take on leadership roles, advocate for themselves and build positive
relationships with adults and fellow students.
will continue to build upon our successes in order to provide rigorous academic
program for all our Marshall students…..our future. Like Thomas Henry Huxley
once said, “The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold
a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.”
