John Marshall High School JROTC Cadets
John Marshall JROTC Cadets once again displayed their loyalty and commitment on April 14, 2015 at Jessie Brown Veteran’s Hospital. Jessie Brown Veterans Hospital regularly provides free food to feed veterans and their families. John Marshall Cadets provided assistance in packing, crating, distributing and even loading their groceries to their automobiles. Jessie Brown provides an open food pantry to all local Veteran’s by conducting a food drive to benefit all Veterans who have proudly served their country.

John Marshall Cadets were motivated and proud to help many Veterans at Jessie Brown. They have become better citizens, effective leaders, and provided a beneficial service to the community. Were all proud of their accomplishments and will continue to support all Veterans.

John Marshall Cadets are already excited to perform more Service Learning for all Veterans and the community.

Student Tardiness
Students must be in regular attendance to understand and successfully complete a course of study; therefore, parents and students should accept responsibility for the student’s attendance. Please be mindful that school starts at 8:00 a.m. Therefore, any student who arrives after 8:15 a.m. will receive an Afterschool Personal Development (ASPD) consequence and must serve it the day that is received. ASPD is held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:13 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. Failure to serve the issued “tardy to school” consequences will result in escalated disciplinary actions.
If you have any questions or concern, please do not hesitate to contact Marshall High School at 773-534-6455 and speak with an attendance personnel. Parents/Guardians should call to report student absence/tardiness before 8:30am.
On January 29, 2015, the Marshall JROTC Commandos performed a Service Learning Project at Jessie Brown Veterans Medical Center in Chicago. Service learning is a teaching method designed to involve Cadets in authentic and meaningful service to their communities. Service learning makes connections between the classroom and the community and provides structured time for Cadets to reflect on their service experiences. It is intended to instill a sense of civic responsibility by encouraging Cadets to assess their impact upon the community as active contributors to society.

Marshall High Cadets visited with veterans throughout the hospital thanking them for their service. They handed out care packages provided by the Red Cross to all the veterans. They listened carefully to all the veterans as they exchanged their experiences while serving in the military. They met with veterans from World War II, the Korean War, Viet Nam, the Gulf War, and the current conflict in Southwest Asia. Veterans were so proud to see Marshall Cadets in uniform thanking them for their participation in the JROTC Program. It was a joyful experience to see our Cadets engage in conversation with many of the veterans. In addition, they talked openly with the hospital staff nurses, doctors etc. inquiring about their experiences with veterans.

As one cadet stated, “I am so proud to be here and I shall never forget this experience.”

Principal’s Message

Greetings Students, Parents/Guardians of John Marshall Metropolitan High School

Wow, how time flies! It has been an exciting year of learning and growing. I have enjoyed getting to know parents, students, staff, alumni and all the community leaders.
I will continue to believe as a team, we will see our goals realized because greatness resides at Marshall. Yes it will take our commitment, determination and stick-to-it-ness to see our labor transfer to academic success. There's is nothing too hard for a commando! 

We have so much work ahead, but I'm convinced at Marshall we can get the job done. Our teachers work hard to ensure that your child receives the best education possible.

Marshall students are great! Parents, our students would not be as successful as they are without your support. 

We are now on the count-down with a few more weeks ahead before we finish 2014-15!  There have been so many accomplishments and great things to happen this year!  We are certainly blessed to all be partnered together for this intensive work.  We must maintain focus and avoid any distractions.  The mission is possible.  

Please feel free to contact me at anytime at the following email address: Please never hesitate to contact the school's main office and schedule an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions and ideas. I can be reached at 773-534-6455.
