Marquette Elementary

Marquette is a 3-5 school paired with Lapham where our students attend 4K-2. Together we serve two neighborhoods in Madison’s isthmus, and we’re proud to be a strong partner to these neighborhoods. Our staff truly believes that every child is the focus of every staff member, and implements strong instructional practices and positive behavioral support to ensure that each child succeeds.

Welcome to Marquette Elementary

Where learning happens everywhere.

Marquette is a vibrant learning community focused on the talents and gifts of each student. We recognize students come to us with different skills, experiences, backgrounds, and needs. We value this diversity in our student body and strive for all students to reach their full potential academically, emotionally, and socially at Marquette.
