This school has offered a safe learning environment all three years I've attended it. The principal, Dr. Soloman Lowry, is well liked and very familiar with the students.

I would not recommend this school for any child who is gifted, and interested in learning. Teachers spend a great deal of time trying to get control of the classroom and the fundamental requirements requires a degree of ridiculousness to parental involvement. I have always been extremely involved in my child's education and my child has steadily been a straight A student. While attending Thurgood Marshall, teachers were fired, moved around in the middle of school and generally not what I would deem quality educators. One parent attended parent teacher night in flip flops. Professionalism is definitely lacking. I transferred my child to private education.
