Marshall School is an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory day school in Duluth, Minnesota for students in grades 4 through 12. Students of diverse socioeconomic, religious, ethnic and racial backgrounds from a variety of geographic areas attend the school. The campus is on a 40-acre hillside overlooking Lake Superior and downtown Duluth and includes academic and technology centers, athletic fields and facilities, and fine arts and performance areas.
The Marshall School is sometimes referred to as Duluth Marshall at Minnesota State High School League athletic tournaments.
The purported mission of Marshall School is to educate students to become global citizens who demonstrate strong academic habits, respect, compassion, integrity, self-discipline and intellectual curiosity.
Marshall School was founded in 1972 by a group of civic and religious leaders who believed that a high-quality, college preparatory education was essential to the future of northern Minnesota. The first board assumed governance of Cathedral Senior High School (founded in 1904) under an agreement with the Catholic Diocese of Duluth that could no longer afford to sustain the school. In 1987, the school’s name was changed to The Marshall School to highlight its independent status and to honor the Albert Morley Marshall family, whose vision and resources over three generations enhanced the quality of education and life in Duluth. Marshall is the only college preparatory school in northern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin. Students from 20 school districts and from a wide geographic area attend the school. Recently, a [VHS] program was added to the Marshall School curriculum, offering a wider range of classes online. Marshall has also added a 1:1 computer program.
Marshall has a college preparatory curriculum. In addition to standard courses, the school provides a variety of honors and advanced placement classes. Students can study four languages: Latin, German, Spanish, and French.
Marshall provides its students with opportunities to contribute to the community. In November 2006, Marshall participated in Operation Christmas Child, in which students, faculty, and parents filled shoe boxes with toys and other supplies to be donated to children. They donated 72 shoe boxes to the charity.
Marshall also offers a class in volunteer outreach, which has students volunteer for a full semester at various organizations, such as animal shelters and hospitals. The school also informs its students on other community service opportunities through bulletin boards and morning announcements.
