The Marsh Foundation School is an alternative boarding school located in Van Wert, Ohio. It serves young people age 7 through 17 whose opportunities to lead productive lives have been diminished due to various personal and family circumstances.
The school was founded by Mr. George H. Marsh and has a history dating back to 1922. Folklore has it that Mr. Marsh and his wife saw two impoverished children one winter evening while driving home and decided to establish a home for the less fortunate.
The foundation offers an on campus school with full time teachers who have master degrees.
There is also focus in special education as well. Since students attend Marsh Foundation School for a variety of reasons, services are specific to individual needs and to families as well.
