    My son is a Freshman and he loves it. I know he is in the best place possible. The teachers are as good as any college professors I had. He is growing academically spiritually athletically and socially. They really do help "good boys to become great men!"

    I am an alumni of this high school and overall as I look back the school was very good. Just like any other high school MUHS had its cliques and politics in sports but I think everything was noticed up a couple notches unlike other high schools. Many of the kids care only about their money and do not feel bad to bully nor leave out others intentionally. Many of them speak highly of themselves and solely focus on how the look in daddy's new BMW and their name-brand Lacoste clothing and tan sperry's. As for the academics you cannot even compare. MUHS prepares students (incl. myself) so well that yes college IS ACTUALLY EASIER. The teachers put a lot of work and deadlines on the students but it teaches them time management and discipline! Two traits an average college freshman rarely have. MUHS has a ton of opportunities to get involved too. Clubs from chorus jazz band scuba diving spanish and everything in between. The retreats were my favorite part. The teachers do such a great job with them and they teach you to open your eyes respect and have faith in one another. I'd say MUHS is definitely a great school but isn't as good as some people hype it up to be.

    I am of the Class of 2014 and so far MUHS has been the best fit. Everyone is so welcoming - there is a certain brotherhood here that is just so great I can't explain it. The religious life is amazing but even if you're not Catholic or Christian you are not discriminated against at all. The academics and extra-curriculars are exemplary. If you're looking for good academics a strong sports school and a great service-oriented place MUHS is the place for you. I know that I will be prepared for the challenges of college in the next 2 years.

    As a student Marquette High has been the best experience of my life. The school not only develops one's intellectual skills but develops the student as a person who will be serving the community for his life after high school. Through the retreats students are able to bond with their fellow classmates. I was very skeptical to attend an all boys high school but coming from a co-ed primary school I feel that I am able to concentrate on my school work and i am able to participate in class without being ostracized for being the "smart one." I fully recommend MUHS for any prospective students and parents. - Member of the Class of 2014

    As an Alum of MUHS I can say without question that it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I know many students and graduates from other schools that had experiences with peer conflicts that never occured at MUHS. I was frequently bullied in grade school and middle school and MUHS instantly felt like home to me. The brotherhood that is shared between Alum is unlike anything that anyone else can understand and the faculty and staff do an excellent job of educating the person athletically artistically spiritually and academically. Without MUHS I am quite sure that my teenage years would have been different for the worse and I would not be on the path to success that I am on now.

    Terrible. No one should be subjected to the kind of rampant bullying my son had to experience here. We have switched schools as Marquette is no place for a child to go. Anyone who truly cares not only about their childs mental health but overall safety should not even consider Marquette. I agree with the teacher below when she says Whitefish Bay is truly the best Milwaukee/Wisconsin school. My older daughter attended here and she has gone on to prosper at Stanford University.

    Has to be one of the best high schools in the nation. All three of our sons graduated. Outstanding in every area Academics; Ethics Citizenship and Service; Sports Arts and other Extracurriculars; School Spirit and Camaraderie.

    Marquette is an outstanding school in all respects. The boys not only excel academically they also grow into respectful young men. The quality of the faculty and administrative staff is excellent and parent involvement is phenominal. Retreats and community service also play a big part in personal growth.

    This is truly an amazing school. Our son grew from a good youth to a great young man. The boys are challenged to achieve and succeed in academics service character and all extra curriculuar activities. Great staff who are phenomenal role models. Our son entered college recently as a sophmore on an almost full scholarship at a private institution.

    Great school! Both our sons were challenged by the teachers and responded. The school doesn't let students slide - in their work or their values. Extracurriculars are not just about sports. How is football and mock trial for a combination? It's been a wonderful experieince for everyone.

    Best academics I have ever seen in all of of my travels and has a stellar sports program to accompany along with the too many extra-curriculur activivities to shake a stick at.
