Thurgood Marshall High School is a public high school located in Missouri City, Texas and is a part of the Fort Bend Independent School District.

Marshall, serving grades 9 through 12, serves sections of Missouri City and a portion of the extraterritorial jurisdiction of Stafford, including sections of Fifth Street. A small portion of the City of Houston is in the school's boundary.[3][4]

Marshall was named after Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American to serve in the Supreme Court of the United States. The mascot is the Buffalo Soldier represented by the Marshall Buffalo and the school colors are black and gold.


Marshall opened on August 15, 2002 and was dedicated on October 13 of the same year.[5]

Marshall is magnetized for its three career academies, Electronic Engineering (EE), Geographical Information Systems (GIS) (Discontinued),[6] and Fire Science Technology. The EE Academy's FIRST Robotics team has received distinguished honors from FIRST in its six years of existence. In the Fall of 2009 they are proposed to open the first International Baccalaureate program in Fort Bend Independent School District.
