Parent: My child is a high school student who has been here for four years and is about to enter university. The atmosphere of the school is very good. The teachers are very enthusiastic, and the students are very happy to study and do activities together! Worth mentioning, the school athletic sports are very strong. In addition, the area where the school is located is quiet and peaceful, and the school is safe.
In a word, as a mother, I think my child has an unforgettable life pursuing knowledge in Marquette. I am pretty satisfied with the school.

Ottawa Township High School
#279 Best Public High Schools in Illinois

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!
