Marquette Catholic High School Reviews

50 reviews
All Categories
Marquette Catholic is overall a good school and the best high school in the area. The majority of the staff does not allow their students to fail. Help is always available for students who are in need of it. Many alum come back from college and also feel Marquette prepared them well. The exchange program is also a very cool aspect and makes the school even more diverse. The athletic department improved this past year, but the focus seems to be on the "top" programs. There is no football team, so the most popular sport is basketball. Not many clubs to join at Marquette, but there are some awesome opportunities for students to take advantage of. Marquette's food is catered from local restaurants which many students enjoy, but it is very overpriced. There are BIG plans for the school that will hopefully improve Marquette and the neighborhood physically and academically in the next couple of years.

They have the most loving, caring staff. The school has been a game changer for my autistic son. He gets way more support and care at Marquette than any public school he has attended. They see him in a completely different way..as a real person with potential.
Marquette becomes your second home the moment you step on campus. The teachers are so sweet and understanding, the students treat you like family, and it is unlike any other high school experience. They mirror a college atmosphere as best as they can. Not only is it a campus (multiple buildings, freedom to walk outside between classes), but all of the classes have the rigor you would see in college but with teachers who are willing to talk you through whatever you need help with. The networking at Marquette is also amazing. The connections that our school has with colleges and universities are unlike any networking you'll see at another school. Colleges love Marquette, and Marquette makes sure you end up at a school that fits you. This shows through our record of 100% acceptance rates among the senior classes.
