    "Marshall isn't one of those schools that's is friendly.It's much of life in prison rather than a school. Teachers and staffs are strict and rude. Learning is very poor,lots of fights,hard to get friends,and the principal is giving out new lessons to teachers,which confuses their students how to learn.I WOULDN'T recommend anyone to go to this school."

    "The teachers at the school have an ability to teach and disipline behavior which lots of schools can't do."

    "I am the parent of a 7th grade student in the gifted magnet. This is NOT a "gifted" program, it's more of an "honors" program. Students are given very little freedom to develop their "giftedness" or hone their unique capabilities. Teachers teach "obedience" under the guise of "responsibility." This may be due to the fact that the "gifted" program is forced to adhere to the "fundamental" rules, which is absurd. Gifted education is the exact opposite of a fundamental-back-to-basics approach. For example, I teach literature at both the high-school and college level. My son LOVES reading and exploring texts. He loves discussing texts, how language is used to create texts, etc. He has never received anything higher than a D in his Language Arts classes. The "fundamental" limitations and mandates are destroying his "gifted" experience. I have talked with many parents who feel the same. If Marshall Middle wants an Honors Program, they should get one, what they shouldn't do is corrupt a Gifted Education and destroy the confidence of its students."

    "My son is in 7th grade in the Center for Gifted studies at Thurgood Marshall. We are extremely happy with this program and could easily send our boys to Shorecrest but feel we are getting a better education all around at Thurgood. We are especially pleased with two teachers, Civics and Algebra I (we get emails weekly from her). These teachers care about and motivate the students. My son has never been so excited about Math and it's now his favorite subject. We don't like two of the teachers, Independent Study (waste of a class) and Language Arts. Every parent we have spoken to feels the same way and wonder how they are still teaching (tenure?). Our son LOVES the school and has many friends. We wish there were some sports but there are more extracurricular opportunities than other public middle schools in the area. The vice-principal is horrible but the new principal is great! We wouldn't leave the area knowing we have such a great school and are excited about selecting the IB, CAT, Collegiate HS or other program in the area for high school in the coming years."

    "I'm a 7th grade student in the "Gifted" Program and i'm in my 2nd year at TMFMS. The principal is great, some teachers are great and proud to be there, and the rest...not so much. In my Gifted Studies class, we learn NOTHING. The teacher says we are in the class to learn "critical" and "creative" thinking skills. All we do is word puzzles for our bell-work assignments, which should only last 10 minutes max. All that class is to me is a waste of a hour and a half. I love my Algebra and Civics teachers and classes, and the PE program is great. The lunch food is the WORST.The school lunch was worse and less nutritional than PRISON FOOD. Now that is saying something. The foreign language programs are good, hands-on classes (well, at least Spanish, thats what I take). The dress code is ABSURD. Us boys need to wear pants every day, no shorts, and in Florida, that is hard. Girls can wear skirts below the knees, or pants. We can't wear backpacks around campus. They need to be in lockers. Crazy. There is a new rule out saying you can't be picked up off campus, and that parents can't be 30 minutes late, or else, detentions. We can't control when we are picked up! Overall, it's a good school."
