At Thurgood Marshall Middle School we have set a high expectation for academic achievement for of our scholars. We offer our students an opportunity to achieve greatness through the schoolwide implementation of AVID, Gateway to Technology (STEM), and Pathways to Success. Our focus is here is college and career readiness. We also provide our families with community partnerships that support the development of the whole child.

    In the words of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, "None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves by our bootstraps. We got here because someone-a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns- bent down and helped us pick up our boots."
