Markesan School District Reviews

The teachers will always make time for you if you are struggling. One thing that I like is that we are very involved in sports, but academics always come first. I personally feel very safe in the school, our on campus officer goes over multiple safety tips with us. One thing that I do not like about Markesan is that they do not ready you for college as much as I wish they did. I was very lost with the whole college essay and what to put in my essay. I wish that they would start readying students their junior year because then your senior year will not be as stressful. If they would start prepping us at an earlier age we would actually start thinking about what we want to do. Another thing that I do not like about Markesan is that if kids do not follow the rules in the handbook they do not give them a big or bad punishment. If the school does not give the kids a big punishment then kids will just do it again.

Very small school, yet big enough. The teachers are always willing to help and they don't treat you like a number. Sports is huge in Markesan, the numbers that go out for each sport is amazing. They have great coaches. Academic wise Markesan is ranked a Top 10 school in the state.
Markesan School District is rated in the top four percent in the state. Both athletically and academically, Markesan surpasses all surrounding school districts. Teachers truly care about their students and provide them with resources to achieve success. Class sizes are small, so students and faculty are able to maintain a close relationship. This school district does not have an immense amount of diversity; this does not affect how students are able to learn or intereact with each other.
