Uniting Rich History with Modern Trends
The renovated spaces at Marquette University High School include a secure entry, campus ministry, counseling, administration areas, faculty offices, and classrooms. The addition includes a new academic success center, large-tiered lecture hall, collaboration areas for large- and small-group instruction, and areas for one-on-one meetings.
A light-filled staircase connects the second and third floors within the addition, and ancillary spaces around the stair provide opportunities for informal gathering and study.
On the third floor, an outdoor “porch” hugs the addition providing students the ability to study outside or simply step out for fresh air. Natural light abounds while re-programming has improved departmental adjacencies benefitting students, staff and faculty.
