Marshall Lab School To Hold Reunion June 20 – 22, 2014

Updated 4 years ago

In 1896, Marshall Lab School had its humble beginnings as the “Model” School with a fourth grade group of five boys and five girls in a room in Old Main. In 1938 the school moved into its own building with Kindergarten through 12th grade. From then until 1970, Marshall Lab School led the way in unique educational opportunities.  The last class graduated in 1970 and the school was closed.  On June 20-22 they will have the first all-class Alumni Reunion since 1988. Please remember, we will NEVER have any MORE Alumni.
