Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

After years of success at the secondary level, Advancement Via Individual Determination—or AVID—was expanded to elementary schools in 2013-14. Marshall is now one of four district elementary schools to implement the program school-wide. AVID gives all students at Marshall the tools to be critical thinkers and to carry those skills into secondary school, high school and college.

Kindergarten Jump Start

Kindergarten Jump Start is a free program for incoming kindergarteners that takes place a few weeks before the school year begins. Students participate in a variety of math, literacy and hands-on activities; learn school routines; and become familiar with their new surroundings.

Data shows that students who attend Jump Start are better prepared for kindergarten than children who do not participate. They also gain confidence, leadership skills and enthusiasm for school. Don’t miss this opportunity to give your child a successful transition to kindergarten!

To register your child, please contact the Marshall office.
