John Marshall High School, as we knew it, is no more.
A lone classroom wall with blackboard stands in defiance of the wrecking ball.
Note the familiar telephone on the wall to the right of the doorway.
The Final Blow to our Alma Mater
The Final Open House was May 12th, 2012!
The last and final open house at the current John Marshall High School marked the end of an era. Our school will be no more except for the name and the ground it stands on. This last last chance to say goodbye was well attended similar to the 2011 event. Most of the historical artifacts have already been removed and are in safe storage. We are doing all we can to preserve what we can. If you missed this open house or just want to re-live the experience, a DVD has been prepared for that purpose. It contains video footage of key locations in the school including the underground track. Ralph Pfingsten, alumnus, teacher, historian and author is featured in a clip that talks about Marshall's history from 1899 to the present with insight from his knowledge and research on the subject.

Demolition is set for the Fall of 2012. The new school will open Fall, 2015.
The First Open House
The First Open House was a huge success thanks to all the hard work by the Volunteers, Students, Faculty and Staff. There were likely a few thousand that toured their alma mater. We sold out of our commemoritive T-Shirts and other JMH souveniers. Ralph Pfingsten gave several presentations about the History of John Marshall in the auditorium. The new school will NOT have an auditorium because the State of Ohio will not fund rooms that are not in contiuous use throughout the school day. We just report, you can decide.
