Student Tardiness
Students must be in regular attendance to understand and successfully complete a course of study; therefore, parents and students should accept responsibility for the student’s attendance. Please be mindful that school starts at 8:00 a.m. Therefore, any student who arrives after 8:15 a.m. will receive an Afterschool Personal Development (ASPD) consequence and must serve it the day that is received. ASPD is held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:13 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. Failure to serve the issued “tardy to school” consequences will result in escalated disciplinary actions.
If you have any questions or concern, please do not hesitate to contact Marshall High School at 773-534-6455 and speak with an attendance personnel.

Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Students, and Staff:

Welcome Back, Commandos!!! I hope you had a restful summer! As always, creating a high-quality education for all of our students here at Marshall has been my top priority. I am just as committed now as I was twenty years ago when I became an eduator. I pledge to continue to take an aggressive approach to ensure that ALL students are successful. Our students deserve a school that will prepare and inspire them to achieve their very best.

Last year, our school accomplished significant gains that will impact our students and community. We saw increases in PSAE reading and math. These increases will continue to aid our students academically. For the third year in a row, our discipline infractions have decreased. This is indicative of our students feeling safe and their connection to the school and their teachers. Our grade level on-track numbers have also increased as our failure rates have decreased. This means that more studnts are on-track to graduate. We have invested in JROTC and added Advanced Placement Art to the curriculum. These programs will bring more options to our students. In addition, we have built partnerships with UIC, Urban Alliance, BAM (Becoming A Man), GROW, and Youth Guidance.

We are proud of these accomplishments; however, we know more work is necessary to have a model school for our community. We must continue to use data to drive our instruction. We must ensure that every student receives individual support and feels connected to the school. Every student must be at school every day and prepared to do their very best. Staff also must hold themselves accountable by being present and prepared to effectively use every instructional minuute. This will require the entire community, parents and guardians must continue to set high epectations for their children's education and ensure that students are attending school every day and on time. We welcome you and need you to participate in school functions. We encourage you to be engaged with the staff - principal, teachers, attendance, and discipline offices, etc.

Our mission is to provide all students with a quality education, including effective communication, critical thinking, and relationship skills. It is imperative that we continue to shift the culture of Marshall to one that has high expectations for students, staff, and families. Parents, we need your continuous help with this. We look forward to our work this school year, and we are confident that we will have a successful school year!

Educationally Yours,

Angel Johnson
