Welcome from the Principal


Welcome to James Marshall Elementary.  We are located in the heart of the Rosemont Community.  James Marshall has a variety of programs to meet the needs of all students.  Most teachers have completed the beginning training for GATE certification and have been trained in differentiated instruction.  In addition, we have many programs to help students attain grade level standards.  We have an active partnership with California State University, Sacramento and their Readers Program and the Burst Reading Intervention Program.  James Marshall hosts the Sacramento START after school program as well as the district’s Children’s Center Program (before and after school care).  James Marshall welcomes all parents and community members to volunteer on campus.
