Mathematics & Computer Science

As a college preparatory school, we offer a strong, fundamental college preparatory program in mathematics. The Math Department’s goal is to lay a solid foundation in each course so that the student is well prepared for the next course he will take. Since 97% of all students take four years of math, this is critical.

Freshmen are placed in the appropriate algebra or geometry course based on previous experience, entrance test scores, and a math placement test given in June. Both the accelerated track and the college prep track provide strong math preparation for college, however the accelerated courses cover material at a more challenging level and pace. Successful students may earn college credit in calculus, statistics and/or computer science through the Advanced Placement program.

At a minimum, Marquette High requires all students to successfully complete Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 for graduation. All students should be aware of the math requirements of the college or university they hope to attend and the requirements for their particular field of interest.
