Marquette offers 1st-3rd grade. Since our time at Marquette they have offered an accelerated reading program that allows your child to be tested multiple times through the school year. This allowed my childs teacher to place her in the reading group level she was performing at. In 2nd grade she was reading at a 5th grade level! They have a no tolerance of bullying that requires both students and parents to acknowledge and sign an agreement to encourage and reward students for good behavior and appropriate discipline to those who do not. The days of asking your child if they have homework and assuming they are doing the assignments is over. Parents must sign and document weekly on a provided homework outline. This has taught us as parents to stay connected in your childs education as well as teaching students good homework tips/habits and study skills that will benefit them as they get older. Another parent summed it up well when she said the classrooms are orderly. Students are respectful to one another and to their teachers. A very positive environment for young minds.
