I enjoyed my two-year experience at Marshall High School. As an international transfer student, the student services department was exceptionally helpful and supportive. I very much enjoyed the countless opportunities offered in clubs, activities, and academics. Furthermore, I am lucky to have participated in the IB Diploma Program as a candidate for my Junior and Senior years of HS. While I do wish there was more diversity, being a native Hispanic, and did encounter some instances of racial insensitivity, overall I experienced acceptance from both staff members and students.
I am a rising junior and I believe Marshall is a phenomenal school. It is ranked as the #1 IB school in the state for a reason. The courses are challenging, but on the long run, I think it negatively affects us at all. The teachers, despite some being a bit ill-mannered to students, are overall great!
