Marshall School Opens

April 29, 2016

Monday saw not only the start of a new school week for Lynn middle school students, but also the start of a new era in learning. For the first time in almost 20 years, (since the completion of Lynn Classical) Lynn students have a new school.

The old Thurgood Marshall Middle School is now replaced by the state-of-the-art building on 100 Brookline Ave. And state of the art it is, with Apple Labs, music and art rooms, consumer science labs and sea glass ceilings, the school feels more like a Disney Channel set then a place of learning.

Gone are the days of pausing a lesson while the Commuter Rail train goes by or a jet flies over. The new building is soundproof.

The Thurgood Marshall Middle School opened Monday, April 25, to the delight of students, teachers and parents. The state-of-the-art school is a welcome edition to the Lynn School System and the first new school in many years. Here, new laughs for a new hallway as Jhosanny Cabrea and Tayshaliz Vargas make their way to their homeroom.

The water eye wash fountains in the science labs are directly connected to the Fire Department, as students and teachers realized on Monday.

Vice Principal Stephanie Doucette put it best during a 6th grade assembly, “We’re going to live the dream at the new Marshall Middle School.”
