I believe Marquette is a wonderful school. My Granddaughter has a wonderful teacher and is doing great. My Granddaughter is legally deaf and wears earing aids. The whole staff at Marquette is very,very accomodating to her needs. Great job marquette!!!!

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.
