Thurgood Marshall High School is a public high school in Dayton, Ohio.[1] The school is named for the late African American pioneering civil rights attorney and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.


Thurgood Marshall High School was formed in 2007 after the merger of Colonel White High School and Nettie Lee Roth Middle School.[2] Roth had previously been a high school until it was converted to a middle school in 1982. Thurgood Marshall was built on the former site of Roth and decided to use Colonel White's nickname of the "Cougars." The school colors are purple and gold, purple being from Roth's purple & white and the gold from Colonel White's green & gold.

Thurgood Marshall students select either the School of Humanities and Cultural Studies or Service and Leadership as ninth graders. The incoming freshmen apply for the admission into the AMA (Academic Magnet Academy) and are accepted based upon meeting the program's entrance requirements. These learning communities are designed to prepare students for entrance into a colleges and universities of higher learning. It is the mission of the small learning communities of Thurgood Marshall High School to prepare students to become active, functioning citizens by providing them with knowledge and skills in academics and humanities.
