With far too numerous accolades, awards and merits to mention, I encourage you to review the web site. And if you have questions, please email me as I can put you in touch with parents who are active within the district as well as board members themselves. And there’s always me too – I’m a happy and proud parent of a Marshall School kid!


I’ve lived in the area for over eight years and I have three kids. I’m also a working mom and I commuted to the City for seven of those years. I’ve been around the block a few times when it comes to finding the right childcare for my brood.  When it comes to childcare, pre-school, and early childhood classes, we have many wonderful options. Likewise, if you’re interested in private school – admissions, interviews and even choosing the one that “just feels right” can be daunting.
