How Does Marston Make the Grade?
At Marston, we focus on raising student achievement all year long, not just at test time. In addition to providing a core curriculum built around California curriculum standards, we offer a variety of elective possibilities and programs to meet the individual needs of our diverse student body.
We actively seek out ways to help students with their studies beyond class time by offering an extensive after school reading and mathematics program, We also use the time beyond class hours to implement our Staff-to-Student Mentor Program.
Each year we have a Girls’ Conference and a Conference for English Learners. We have a Striving Readers Grant that is focused on assisting students who struggle with reading by providing specialized instruction geared toward providing comprehending text that is read in all subject areas.
