About Our School

Clifford Marshall Elementary School

The Clifford H. Marshall Elementary school was founded in September 1998. The schools stands on the hill at 200 Moody Street at Quincy Point. This elementary school is a pioneer in the advancement of technology for the twenty-first century. It is full equipped with a computer lab facility, an in-house video broadcasting system, classroom telephones, and central air conditioning. The school is dedicated in loving memory of the late Clifford H. Marshall (1937-1995). Mr. Marshall, a Ward Two resident, dedicated his life to politics. He represented the Quincy Point community as a member of the City Council in the early years of his career. In 1974, he was elected Sheriff of Norfolk County and served as Sheriff for over twenty years.

My idea of politics is to help people - Clifford H. Marshall

Message from the Principal of Marshall:

Nick Ahearn

One of the truly marvelous experiences in education is the way students and staffs alike begin anew every year when the bell tolls. A fresh start, another chance, a clean slate is a great opportunity to refocus our efforts and to rekindle our dedication in developing self-fulfilling individuals, contributing citizens and competent workers in a democratic society. Add to that a beautiful new school, combined with the strong historical roots of both the Pollard and Daniel Webster Schools and then you choose a name to honor a very special person like Clifford Marshall-it is hard to contain the joy and happiness that is ours. We are proud to honor his name and to continue his efforts of helping others.

Piaget once said, "What an individual can learn and how he learns it depends on what model he has available." We are blessed indeed to have the best models available. From our outstanding staff, to our new computer lab, from our beautiful gymnasium, to our multi-purpose cafeteria, from our spacious classrooms to our acres of play space, we are the recipients in a city that values and promotes excellence in education. It is indeed an honor and a privilege for me to welcome you to our school.

Elementary School is an important first step in your child's education. Quincy Public Schools are there from the first time your kindergartner picks out a book at the school library to the first grader having success in math to upper grades where students take their basis of knowledge and expand it to more advanced thinking.


At Clifford Marshall, our students are excited about learning - both in the classroom and outside the classroom. We know that students have very different needs. Some students need a little extra help to excel. Other students are ready to go beyond what they learn in the classroom. And all our students want to have fun!
