About Our School

  • Located on Allen Avenue in a primarily residential area of north-central Pasadena, Marshall Fundamental Secondary School is one of a few schools in the Pasadena Unified School District that offers grades 6-12 within the same educational site.

    Since 1973, when the school was reopened as a fundamental school, Marshall Fundamental has maintained an unwavering commitment to providing students with a firm, wide-ranging academic foundation on which to build a successful future.

    Marshall provides a rich and diverse cultural arts community and collaborates with local programs that support the interest of the school and the students. We are home to the Academy for Creative Industries (ACI); 70% of our student population is engaged in the arts; bands, choir, drama, graphic arts (3D printing), orchestra, and visual arts.

    At Marshall Fundamental, we believe in:

    • Engaging students in rigorous instruction aligned to standards  
    • Supporting high expectations for all students 
    • Connecting with students both professionally and personally 
    • Partnering with parents for student success
