We have a sophomore at Marquette HS that came in new to the area as a freshman, so he did not attend MS in Missouri. Marquette has a wide variety of class choices, especially in the engineering area, which is nice. The academics can be challenging if you have honors or AP classes. I do think Rockwood and Missouri schools as a whole are behind in foreign language teaching compared to other areas of the country. Socially it is hard to "break in" to some very tight knit groups that exist at the school. Students by and large are not open or welcoming to new students and neither are their parents, so that is probably why. We have been a part of some athletic teams hoping that would bond our child with other students more, but so far, that has not happened. Administration cannot possibly know how individual students are doing socially and emotionally because the school is just too large. Academically I am pleased with Marquette so far and hope my child can attend a good college.

Two of my children attend MHS, one senior and one freshman. The reputation at MHS is well earned. My senior will be attending Mizzou in the Fall. There are so many opportunities to pursue just about any interest your child can have. Academically, MHS is rated one of the top HS in the nation. We love it!

My son transferred into Marquette this year as a sophomore. While he lacked interest in his two previous schools and performed far beyond his potential, Marquette's welcoming environment, outstanding teachers, and open-minded student body has helped maked his transition a very posistive experience. He now enjoys going to school and works his tail off to do well. I credit the principal leadership and excellent teachers for Marquette providing the perfect balance of competition and individual attention to help every child reach their potential. Additionally, their library, classrooms, and other facilties are state-of-the-art. Parental involvement is encouraged, excpected, and obviously required for students to do their best. Rockwood is the best school disctrict in St. Louis and Marquette is the best in Rockwood. My oldest son attended Eureka High School so I have experience with two high schools in the Rockwood District.

My son loves this school. He has attended private school in Clayton MO from preK to 5th grade, middle school in Princeton, NJ, and back to finish 8th grade at Crestview MIddle/Rockwood. Marquette HS (and Rockwood School District in general) is on par with both private schooling and the public schools in a highly rated East Coast school district. Dedicated teaching staff, a congenial atmosphere, updated facilities, and an atmosphere of excellence are what keep me satisfied sending my son to this school. My son will graduate this year (with honors) and hopefully will be as successful in his college years as he has been at Marquette -

As a parent of a junior at this school, I give it high marks. The teaching staff is enthusiastic, engaging and competent. I am blown away at times by the level of work that is required of my daughter. Kudos to the school for doing a great job of motivating and preparing students for a post-high school education.
