Exemplary Programs
Marshall is the place to be! We realize every student is different and has specific needs. Differentiation is an area where Marshall excels. We analyze data closely to fully understand each and every student to provide early intervention and enrichment. Teachers participate in Professional Learning Communities each week to focus on student achievement and teaching strategies. Fourth & fifth grade students are able to participate in the Chorus and fifth grade students have the opportunity to receive instrumental instruction. Our Advanced Academic Program works with students to extend the regular curriculum as well as compete in academic contests including the Stock Market Club, Xcelerated Math League, Lego League, Spelling Bee, and the Geography Bee. We have received awards at the national and state level for our accomplishments with Positive Behavior Support (school climate) and we were a National Distinguished Title I school for 2015-2016.

Curriculum Highlights
Marshall Elementary School utilizes a standards based curriculum aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Grade levels plan units of study that meet Common Core Standards using several resources while differentiating so that all student needs are met. The core of our reading curriculum is the Houghton Mifflin literacy program "Journeys." Our writing program is grounded in Nonfiction Writing and the importance of writing daily in all content areas - especially paired with non-fiction text. Our math curriculum is Math Connects by McGraw Hill. Our social studies curriculum is grounded in state content standards and utilizes Harcourt Publishing materials. For science Marshall, in partnership with the Delaware Science Coalition, utilizes Science Kits that are scheduled for each grade level. We will begin to align our Science instruction with the Next Generation Science Standards. All of our programs encourage problem solving skills and higher order thinking.
