Jessica Powell

Welcome to Thurgood Marshall School! It is a great day to be a mustang!

We are proud of the achievements of our students and staff. As a 2020 National Blue Ribbon School & the #1 Best Middle School in Illinois, the Gifted Academy at Thurgood Marshall School embodies rigor and relevance while promoting academic excellence, personal responsibility and integrity.​ As principal of Marshall, I appreciate and value the important relationship between our families and the staff. Thank you for being a partner in your student’s education! The growth our students make and the enriching experiences they have would not be possible without this strong partnership! We are #MarshallStrong 💜
