Welcome to Marshall Elementary!

Marshall logoThurgood Marshall Elementary School (TMES), established in 1999, is located in San Diego County and serves a culturally and economically diverse population of 660 Transitional Kindergarten through sixth-grade students. The Chula Vista Elementary School District, with 49 schools including charters is the largest elementary school district in California. Our diverse population includes Hispanic, Asian, Filipino, White, Two or More Races, and African American students.

Diversity is celebrated at Marshall school and the cultures of our students are incorporated into our instructional curriculum and school-wide activities. A highly visible mural facing our community proudly displays the rich cultural heritage of our students. This mural, created in collaboration with Southwestern College, is updated to reflect the cultures of our newly enrolling students. Our school community values: honesty, integrity, respect, diversity, commitment, perseverance, teamwork, equity, optimism, and creativity. We are a school committed to justice, equality, and human rights in the spirit and ideals of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

TMES is a caring, safe community that focuses on the academic and social/emotional development of all students.
