Wow, just pause for a moment to read these reviews. Terrible grammar and the majority are expressing a very narrow scope. My grandaughter has been here two years and is struggling in math and reading. When my daughter expressed her concern over the struggles, the teacher told her " that's ok, there are many adults who cannot spell". Are you serious? A child should not struggle to no avail without assistance. Self image and confidence are battered and this is a terrible start. I am moving my family from this area so that my grandchildren can achieve their potential, without having to be "labeled" which by the way is not acceptable. Bullying is a sign of weakness and those who hold positions of authority and fail to act or hold those accountable with such behavior are the most cuplable. Shame on this school for making small town midwestern towns look really bad!

I have 2 children that attend Markesan. My older child has been struggling with school since K and I have consistently asked teachers and other staff about my concerns with her learning and all I can say is that I am sick and tired of hearing " oh I will look into it" and never hearing anything back from anyone. So frustrating.... Apparently a parents concern for her child means nothing!

My child has gone to Markesan since 2nd grade and second grade and third grade was great then in fourth grade my child started to be bullied I talked to everyone with the school and until I spoke to the parent myself it did not get resolved. 5th grade is just as bad maybe worse and the school does nothing for bullying. This school seems to very labeled and if your not in sports they couldnt give two craps less. I also went to Markesan school K through12 and it has gotten worse. Just my opinion and this does not mean my son or I have a problem referring to the lady on May 14th it means the school has an issue

I have three kids in this school and my kids love the teachers and staff! Everyone is so nice and will go the extra mile to help my children out. Awesome office staff that knows each kid by name and will work with you on just about anything!! A++++

ive gone to markesan my whole life. and when other kids from other schools walk down our halls they are impressed. we have very nice buildings and great teachers. and yes, some kids are labelled, but usually theres a legit reason for it. you cant expect kids not to get labelled. its just part of life, it happens everywhere. if youre kid gets in trouble a lot maybe its part of the parenting, whether or not they were labelled theyre trouble... fix it. dont blame the school. we have punishment and reinforcement and its much better than what my friends at other schools have told me. and its true we like kids to be involved in sports but doesnt any school? you can only be in sports if youre getting the right scores in school so if youre reading the previous review from feb 17th. they obviously had a personal problem

I have 2 chiildren who have great success at this school. The teachers are very on the ball, prompt with delivering praise and offering help with your child. I get responses to emails immediately and receive feedback promptly with any questions or concerns I have

I've always found the teachers my children have had to be very dedicated and they seem to care very deeply for all the students. I don't feel kids are labled as much as their special needs are identified and they are placed in programs to help them learn to their fullest. I've had nothing but positive interactions with the principals and teachers about my kids and my kids are not in sports. My kids have special needs and I believe are getting the best education in the best school.

Markesan School is not a good place for your kids. The principals and the teachers don't care about the kids. If your child is in alot of trouble they lable the kid. Learning is not a factor they rather have you play football or some kind of sports. The whole town knows everyones busness. If your lunch doller amount is in the hole you get your lunch and your lunch card taken away the third time your parents get called. If your kids are noisy at lunch you get scolded for it like not going out side for resses.
