  • Fifth graders enjoyed many new experiences at Camp Bernie. They took part in many team and confidence building activities as well as had the opportunity to make friends with students they will see again next school year at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.  Although exhausted from all the fresh air and exercise, all students, teachers, and chaperones had many positive comments about the trip.  Please take a moment to view some of the fun photos from the Camp Bernie trips.

Welcome to John Marshall


At John Marshall School we seek to have each child reach his or her full academic potential.  In addition, we have available a wide variety of programs and clubs to assist students in becoming better citizens and improving their self worth.  These programs and clubs include Strings, Chorus, Band, Community Helpers, Student Council, Environmental Club, English Language Learners' Game Club, Technology Club, Magical Friends, Brain Teaser, Homework Haven and Fitness Club.  The students at John Marshall participate in our Character Education program, designed to teach them the six pillars of having strong character.  Our students also participate in activities sponsored by the district wide C.A.R.E.S. program.

We are a diverse community with students representing cultures from all over the world.  We have an active Human Relations Committee which works closely with our PTO to plan a wide variety of family-oriented evening programs and daytime assemblies.  John Marshall has partnered with the Edison Municipal Alliance.  This program works with parents and children to help strengthen the family unit.

We provide our students with a wide variety of opportunities to explore and express their thoughts.   We publish a quarterly school newspaper focusing on student writing.  Students are rewarded for meeting and exceeding their leisure reading goals through numerous programs.

At John Marshall, we continue to work together as a close knit community of life-long learners for the betterment of our student body.
