I go to Markesan High School. I am a 3.9 GPA student. It would've gotten a better rating if our administration would take bullying more seriously. Even the teachers continue to be constantly rude to their students. I understand that sometimes it can be necessary. I never knew I would be bullied at this school, but I was, right in front of the teachers. Nothing happened to the bullies, EVEN WHEN THE ADMINISTRATION IS ALERTED!

I like that Markesan High School is in a small town, so everyone is friendly. The classes are small which makes it easier to get to know your teachers and classmates. Therefore, it's convenient to get the help I need as a student and to make plenty of friends. I like how close the school is to my home because it helps that I know the area. I would like to see more classes available to the students. I've wanted to take multiple classes that haven't I have been able to, and I feel like there aren't many options that will help me with my future career.
Markesan is a very community based school. Everyone is safe and friendly. My four years at Markesan were wonderful, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small town to graduate from.
