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.

All students care a lot about their work and there is an environment of support. Grades and learning matter more than sports and clubs. The teachers (for the most part) create lesson plans that foster learning, rather than lectures. Very well prepared for IB exams! Most people are very friendly and want to help. School is clean and nicely renovated. Sports teams are also great at what they do, and clubs are open to everyone and very inviting. Learn time is a great time to get help from teachers and catch up on work/study. Students are friendly and there is a great community environment for pep rallies, etc.
It is a privilege to attend George C Marshall Highschool. Not only do they have amazing academic programs, their clubs and activities are also very good. The school actively encourage students to join clubs and activities in order to bring students together and create new friendships. Marshall High offers one of the best academic diplomas known as the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The IB program offers vigorous and challenging classes for students and help prepare them for college. In addition to the IB program, the school also offers other resources to help with the transition from high school to college. They have a College Center that helped students find scholarship, work opportunity for the summer, and they even help with writing college essay. Students here are diverse and friendly. Most students form new friendships through various club activities they share together.
