Principal's Message

Hello Marshall Families,


My name Juan Ortiz and it is with my pleasure to welcome you and your children to the  Marshall Middle School family. I joined the PUSD family in 2002 as a English teacher at Marshall Middle, became the Assistant Principal is 2009 and in 2013 had the honor of becoming the principal.  It is my core belief that when parents, students, teachers, and administration work together, there is no limit to what our children can accomplish.


The 2018-19 school year will hold an abundance of opportunities for your children to grow socially and academically.  This year Marshall will undergo a transformation in becoming a 1:1 Chromebook school. Each student will receive a Chromebook laptop as part of our initiative.  Parents and students will receive training to be prepared to continue our school transition to online learning.


Marshall’s Mission revolves around all stakeholders collaborating to support the academic success of your child.  We are committed to doing what is best for students day in and day out. Marshall’s Staff will implement best practices based on student outcomes to support your child.  Marshall offers your students a variety of programs to support their learning. Whether it be AVID, Music, Sports, Computer Science, STEM Lab, Clubs, or ASB our school has a program that will connect with your child and support their academic and social development.


It is a great honor to continue to serve our community and I look forward to meeting with all of you to support your child.


Mr. Juan Ortiz
