National Magnet School of Distinction
Marshall has been named a National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools. Magnet School of Distinction Awards are only given to a select group of magnet schools. To receive a national merit award, members of Magnet Schools of America must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school's magnet theme.
