Parent: My family recommended Marquette Academy to our child, however, we didn't like the cold weather in Chicago area, so, we pushed our child to a private high school in east coast, close to big city or US capital, however, our child could not forget Marquette Academy after his visit, now we are happy finally our child fulfill his wish to come to Marquette to study. We believe because its professional and effective communication between parents, schools and students make we feel so warm, so still in touch with our child even he is far away from us. Its running start program which offers 65 college credits caught our eye, hopefully our child takes advantage of this resource.

Alum: I thoroughly enjoyed the clubs and activities I was involved in at OTHS. They offered a very diverse variety of opportunities for students and most sponsors were dedicated and involved.
Regarding academics, I was disappointed at the lack of STEM and coding opportunities, but I feel that most of my coursework prepared me fairly well for college. There were several excellent, involved teachers who would go out of their way to help students, but unfortunately, also others who were clearly just phoning it in.
Overall I felt that many teachers had a fixed mindset regarding education and were not willing/able to think outside the box to relate to their students. As a result, graduation seemed impersonal and systematic rather than a final celebration of our accomplishments. I'll miss some things about OHS, but I'm happy to be off to bigger and better things!
