Mission:Marshall Magnet School promotes the development of our students through an integrated curriculum which emphasizes the arts and sciences. All of Marshall's unique magnet programs are independently funded through gifts, grants, and tax-credit contributions.
Core Belief:Marshall students are informed, inspired and exceptional forever.Who we are and what we do:Marshall is an Art and Science Magnet School. This special status, unique among Flagstaff schools, is made possible through our community partnerships. Above and beyond our fixed operating budget, our school receives much-needed additional support from tax credit monies, the local business community, as well from and array of city, county, state, and federal grants. These essential special funding sources enable Marshall to offer several unique learning opportunities to all of its students at no extra cost to our families.
Marshall is also a federally-identified Title 1 school, a status which implies that the picture of our student population includes individuals from many socioeconomic backgrounds. Our school likewise celebrates its great cultural diversity with an ethnic composition that is 40% Hispanic, 18% Native American, 2% Asian, and 40% Anglo in addition to many others.Integration of the arts and sciences into our academic curriculum in support of achievement occurs constantly at Marshall. Our teachers meet to collaborate in Professional Learning Communities on a weekly basis,with the goal of raising student achievement and comprehension always taking center stage. Similarly, our Site, Art, and Science Councils, as well as our PTO, teachers, families, artists-in-residence, local scientists, administrative and community partners actively collaborate,year-after-year, to continue to enhance and expand our unique programs.How can you help?Please consider making your tax credit contribution (a dollar for dollar credit returned to you on State taxes) to our Marshall Magnet Art and Science programs.
