 Congratulations Thurgood Marshall School!

 12/12/2019

​Thurgood Marshall School has the highest composite score in Illinois on 2019 state standardized tests! Students who are in the Gifted Academy in fifth through eighth grades at Marshall had the highest composite score of all public schools in Illinois when comparing other schools' fifth through eighth graders. The results are based on the Illinois Assessment of Readiness, or IAR. These are the state standardized tests students take each spring.

Thurgood Marshall School Principal Jill Faber and Assistant Principal Megan Jones hosted a celebration this morning for teachers and staff with the theme, “If teachers were treated like professional athletes.” Thurgood Marshall School will host a student celebration on Friday, Dec. 20, during homeroom.
