I attended GCM for all four years of high school, and graduated with the IB Diploma, and have since attended a high ranking university. Marshall, specifically the History and Biology departments, prepared me for college more than most of my peers. The biology program's focus on performing labs and writing lab reports prepared me for my human phys lab, in which we were required to conduct our own research like the science fairs and IAs at GCM. Mr. Osborne ensured that his students were familiar with some basic software and knew how to properly write and follow lab techniques, allowing me to walk into our experiment proposal projects this year confident and prepared. The History and English departments' focus on writing, and making clear assertions that are maintained throughout the piece, ensured I knew how to write clearly and concisely at the college level before beginning my first writing class.
Loved the teachers, loved the courses. Rigorous, yet rewarding International Baccalaureate program. Amazing athletics department. Major renovations were finished in 2016 and the school is gorgeous now. Teachers really care about the students and respect them, so the students respect the teachers as well. Really great vocational school "Marshall Academy" within the high school that offers Automotive Tech, Criminal Justice, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Cyber Security, Computer Systems A+, Chinese, Cisco CCNA Networking, and more! Amazing extracurriculars and a very supportive community.
