The purpose of the Marshall County Central School District is to provide the best education possible for all who seek to be further educated, including Pre-Kindergarten, Elementary, and Junior and Senior High School students, as well as adults through Community Education. Our schools provide many varied educational opportunities, while emphasizing the basic skills necessary to function in society. Our school buildings compare favorably with other facilities in Northwest Minnesota, and our schools are area leaders in computer technology education. Most importantly, the people who make up the Marshall County Central Schools are dedicated to quality education. Staff and students recognize the importance of respect for each person as a unique individual. We expect respect from each person and for each person in order to create a more caring atmosphere in our schools.
