Marquette Senior High School Reviews

I went to MSHS from 9th until I graduated 12th grade. I had a great experience here, although some you talk to may not think so. I had a great bunch of teachers, including Mr Sandstrom, Mr King, Mrs Carr, Mr Hefke, and Mrs O'Connor. I did very well here, graduating with honors and a 3.7 GPA. The last year I was there, things started to change a bit with the lunch program, so it should be a lot better in the coming years. Looking back, I wish I could thank my teachers for being so great to me.
Marquette Senior High School has a lot to offer to all of the students. From art classes to AP classes, to wood working classes, there is something for everyone. Along with curriculum, there are a wide variety of sports and intramural sports that keep growing as the students do. With a great staff leading the next generation of fine students, our school is one of the best in Upper Michigan!
My overall experience had been quite well at Marquette Senior High School, specifically the teachers and staff. Also the school provides students with many benefits, such as chromebooks; you could say we're spoiled. However I do not enjoy the school lunches nor do I appreciate some of the strict policies they enforce. One example of this is the new attendance policy they just added.
