What does it mean to be a magnet school?
Marshall Magnet Elementary School exists to promote the academic and social development of each of its students through a diverse, integrated curriculum emphasizing the arts and sciences. Unique among Flagstaff's schools, Marshall is an arts and science magnet school, meaning we have woven a special emphasis on these key aspects of learning throughout our curriculum. We are proud to have been doing this successfully since the magnet concept began at our school more than a decade ago. We are committed to providing your child with a strong academic program of study, as well as extensive art and music opportunities, and an enhanced science program. Within our tandem arts and science emphases, all of Marshall’s educational programs are dedicated to teaching the whole child.
Marshall is an Art and Science Magnet school, which is made possible through community partnerships. The help and support the school receives from FUSD, annual tax credit contributions, the business community, as well as local, state and federal grants enables Marshall to offer unique opportunities to all students at no cost to our families.
