Here at Marsh ES, I look forward to interdependently working with our scholars, parents, and community stakeholders to address the four core values of Academics Excellence, Community Engagement, Social Justice, and MONARCH PRIDE!  In Committing To Excellence, together, we will cultivate a learning community in which all stakeholders invest in supporting each other while highlighting the accomplishments of our scholars and community members.
