Marshall Middle School

About Our School

Patrick Murphy, Superintendent

Anthony Brock, Principal

Michele Weber-Hindrup, Assistant Principal


Thurgood Marshall Middle School opened its doors in the fall of 1994. Through a year long “Design Team” planning process involving staff, administrators, parents, community members and students, a comprehensive plan was developed to create a middle school experience based on best practice for the most effective learning environment for middle level students. The elements included in that original plan that still endure today are:


  • Connecting curriculum and instruction to real life
  • Integrating opportunities for community service and learning responsible citizenship
  • Strong parent-school communication
  • Integrating technology as a learning tool
  • Challenging instructional programs


Additionally, staff at TMMS focus extensively on formative assessment practices, meet regularly in Professional Learning Communities and focus on the creation of classroom environments that foster and nurture growth mindsets in students.

Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program

Washington students participate in state tests annually to assess their progress as well as the progress of our educational system as a whole.

Our state uses the Smarter Balanced assessment system, aligned to Washington’s K-12 Learning Standards. The scores below represent the percent of students meeting standard in three core subjects, ELA, Math, and for grades 5, 8, and 11, Science (Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science or WCAS).

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.


What is the Rasch UnIT (RIT) scale?

When students finish their MAP Growth test, they receive a number called an RIT score for each area they are tested in (reading, language usage, math, or science). This score represents a student’s achievement level at any given moment and helps measure their academic growth over time. The RIT scale is a stable scale, like feet and inches, that accurately measures student performance, regardless of age, grades, or grade level. Like marking height on a growth chart, and being able to see how tall your child is at various points in time, you can also see how much they have grown between tests.

The higher the RIT score, the more achievement the student has in the subject. The student's percentile ranking and conditional growth percentile can show how much the student has achieved in comparison with their peers. You can also refer to the Comparative Data to Inform Instructional Decisions to understand how students are performing relative to other students in the same grade level according to our national norms.

National Assessment of Educational Progress

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a survey of grade student achievement in core subject areas.
