20 Parent Reviews for Marquette Elementary School

This school ha s improved since it became AUSL, but it is still horrible. The teachers, Deans and Principles are trying to over compensate for the prior grade of the school, and have unrealistic ideals.

One of Chicago's worst schools and nobody cares. Whenever I go to that school as a substitute teacher, the principal is not around. She is always in her office and everything is left to the assistant principal and the other office staff.

I really deeply disdain this school. I don't think kids look forward to going to school everyday. Like the parent before me said children can get detentions for not having their shirts tucked in. On picture day kids must go in uniform, most of the staff and kids agree that thats not fair knowing that ...  Read more

Marquette is a terrible school. I have had children enrolled in this school for the past seven years. There has been a steady decline in the quality of education there. The teachers don't seem interested in teaching. A child can recieve a detention for not having their shirt tucked in. While other ...  Read more
