Marquette Catholic High School Reviews

The school spirit at Marquette Catholic is unmatched from any other school in the area. The student body has been much more diverse (geographically and racially). Over the past few years, the school has seen significant upgrades including a brand new state of the art STEM center and a renovated gym and commons area. The enrollment is the highest it has been in over 25 years. I no longer live in the area, but I would certainly send my kids there if I did. I can very honestly say that I would have not had the success I did getting into college, at college, and beyond had I not attended Marquette. The school's Serviam motto is still very much a part of my life.

I had an excellent experience at Marquette. I loved the sporting events and the social atmosphere. I do feel your academic experience greatly depends on what teacher you receive. If you get the head of the department, you get a wonderful education. If you don’t get that teacher, it’s not so great.
Marquette catholic offers a wide variety of different classes for everyone. Since we have such a small school the ratio of students to teachers are perfect. The teachers dedicate their time and offer extra time if needed. Overall, the atmosphere of being apart of the marquette family is amazing. I could not see myself getting the best education with such an involved atmosphere any where else.
