It’s working!

The generous support you provide allows us to fulfill our mission and nurture a love of learning and neighbor in our children.


Goal Setting PictureSpeaking strictly to academics, this year our students ranked 1-4 grade levels above the national equivalency in the Stanford Achievement Test (learn how the SAT-10 benchmark compares)!  This means our 8th graders are already testing at post-high school levels in areas.  Couple that with the fact that over 80% the student body achieve honors or high honors shows that our students are achieving true academic excellence!


All grades are required to complete community service together as a class each year. On average, our students combined community service exceeds 700 hours per year through which they learn the importance of taking care of those in need and giving back to the community.

Community service events included:

  • Visits to Out and About Senior Daycare twice to visit the seniors, play board games/cards with them, etc.
  • Making a quilt and raffling it off with proceeds going to charity (Lamoille Family Center)
  • Cleaning of St. Teresa’s church in Hyde Park
  • Baking 30 dozen rolls for the Lamoille Community Food Share
  • Handmade cards and decorations monthly to give to residents at The Manor
  • Donation of 66 hats & pairs of gloves to the Central Vermont Community Action Council of Lamoille County
  • Holiday concert for residents at The Manor
  • Daffodil Days for the American Cancer Society
  • Math-a-thon for the benefit of St. Jude’s Research Hospital
  • North Country Animal League donations of blankets, sheets, and other needed supplies
  • Flip tab collection for Ronald McDonald House

“Over the 9 years I have attended Bishop Marshall School I have never once felt like I did not belong here. I have never once felt the need to question whether or not I fit in because the answer is always a simple “Yes”. You fit in by standing out. Here at Bishop Marshall School you are not just a student, you are not just a name, and you are not just a grade. You are you.

Everyone knows everyone for who they are. Teachers and faculty know you by your name and your personality, classmates know you as a friend, and other students know you for who you really are. You never have the need to pretend you are someone you are not.

When you are here at Bishop Marshall School you are a family. One big, happy, complicated family. When you are here you know that you are surrounded by people who love you and care about you.

I would like to thank every member of my Bishop Marshall School family because without each and every one of you I would not be standing here today; and without you I would not be who I am today. I truly love and care about all of you. Thank you!” – Brooke Willett, Class of 2012
