Marquette University High School is an incredible place. As a Jesuit institution, they focus on the whole person: academic and faith life. This is the most important thing at Marquette. The academics are very challenging but they give you so much help and opportunities to help you get better grades. They have advising for you and I personal thought that helps a lot. They also have a center and after school program for those who are struggling with grades, assignments, and projects. All the staff at this school are always there for you and want to help you anyway that they can so that means you have someone on your side at all time.

Academically, Marquette is a great institution that encompasses the idea of what it means to be a true "Man for others" through, service, prayer, education etc. I am truly blessed to have received such an education and four years of life-changing experiences. There is so much to love about the school such as the facilities, the teachers, the school culture, athletics and most importantly the top notch education. The only downside to Marquette is the lack of diversity. I found myself to often times be the only African-American in almost all of my classes, sometimes accompanied by 1 or 2 Latinos in classes of 20+. Overall, I feel that I will be graduating Marquette with the necessary tools and components for success in college, but there is still a lot of work that needs to be done culturally.
MUHS is a very good academic school. Classes challenge and push students to be there very best. Due to it not being coed a very close brotherhood is very visible every day at school. One issue I have with MUHS is the lack of diversity and the lack. It is a predominantly white school. As an African American, I find myself sometimes uncomfortable especially considering there are only 3 African American faculty members.
