Principal’s Message


Dear Students, Parents, Faculty & Staff,


It is with great excitement that I write this letter as we prepare for the 2015-2016 school year at John Marshall Metropolitan High School.  I am overjoyed to celebrate our success in closing out last school year with academic growth.  Our upcoming partnerships will continue to ensure the success of all students at Marshall.  I believe that we will all work hard to establish a legacy of success at Marshall by continuing to build strong relationships.  It will also take the work of  parents, students, staff, and community partners to continue to move the school forward.  


Marshall High School made remarkable gains last school year.  With the support, assistance and unwavering commitment of a great team and staff, student attendance increased by 6%, additionally, we saw an increase of student achievement on the district’s EPAS assessments that assesses college readiness, significant decreases of incidences of violence on campus, and more students receiving college scholarships than any school year thus far.  Our work is not done, we are expecting greater in 2015-16.  


We, as a school, will focus on instructional practices that are aligned with Common Core State Standards and College Readiness Standards and push our students to engage in rigorous learning experiences.  We will expect our students to show academic achievement by using data to inform our instructional planning and execution.  We will continue to build a safe school environment that radiates model citizenship.

I look forward to another successful school year ensuring the academic, social, and emotional growth of all students here at Marshall.  During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Marshall with the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be college and career ready.


As principal, my door will always be open and I welcome your input.   Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!  As a reminder, the first day of school is Tuesday, September 8, 2015. This will be a remarkable year for the students, parents, staff and partners of Marshall.   I look forward to working with you and the students of John Marshall Metropolitan High School.


Sincerely,


Dr. Lori Ann Campbell

Principal
