Marquette Area Public Schools Reviews

Marquette Area Public Schools thrives because of the loving and passionate teachers along with the work ethic of the students. My experience, without a doubt, has not been a breeze. The schools could work on having stronger, more authoritative administrators. Sometimes I feel unheard in the system. But the teachers are golden. Other than that, this district breeds passion and excitement.

I have enjoyed my years at Marquette Senior High School. I take pride in my school as we have amazing teachers and academics. I feel that my high school has prepared me for college, and I am excited for all it has to offer!
Being a High School Senior at Marquette Area Public Schools (MAPS), I would have to say that my overall experience in the district was successful. MAPS has an excellent team of guidance counselors that help put students into classes with teachers that best match their learning style. This district was able to provide me an education that goes above and beyond what most districts within Michigan's Upper Peninsula could ever hope to provide. However when it comes to the schools within the district, I feel that some work needs to be done. Many of the elementary schools are fairly new, however, the buildings for grades 4-12 are becoming old and are losing their integrity. Also the High School parking lot does not have enough spaces for all of its students. Overall I have had a great experience within the Marquette Area Public School District and feel well prepared for college.
