Marquette University High School (or MUHS) is a private, all-male, Jesuit, Roman Catholic school located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and is a member of both the National Catholic Educational Association and the Jesuit Secondary Education Association.
The majority (98%) of its students have gone on to a four-year college or university. There were 280 students in the class of 2006. The class of 2007 was the 150th graduating class at MUHS.
Marquette University High School is located at 35th Street and Wisconsin Avenue (3401 W. Wisconsin Avenue) in Merrill Park Neighborhood on Milwaukee's west side. It is a four-story building, built in the early 20th century.
The curriculum at Marquette has strict credit requirements in all fields of study including classes in science, mathematics, world languages, social studies, and English.
MUHS offers Latin, German, and Spanish as foreign languages, and has participated in exchange programs with France, Germany and the Czech Republic. Students also have the opportunity to travel to Ireland, the UK, Germany, Italy, Mexico, and other countries.
The Webster Club provides students with an opportunity to compete in Policy Debate, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Forensics, and Mock Trial. Webster Club teams consistently perform admirably both at the state and national levels.
MUHS students perform tens of thousands of hours of community service every year, in keeping with the school's goal to create "men for others".
Every year since 1963, the senior class has written and performed "Senior Follies", a satirical musical farce in which the actors portray caricatures of faculty members. The 2009 show was Herminator Salvation and the 2010 show was Return of the Jeni. The Class of 2012 performed "Ochoquatro", a postmodern story structured similar to the cosmogonic cycle of Joseph Campbell, utilizing elements of metafiction.
In addition to follies, the school's theater group, the Prep Players, presents a musical in spring and a stage play in winter every year.
Nicknamed the "Hilltoppers", MUHS teams competed in the now defunct Wisconsin Independent Schools Athletics Association (WISAA) in most sports prior to 1999. Since then, they have competed in the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA). 60% of the student body participates in a sport. The school fields teams in baseball, basketball, cross country running, downhill skiing, football, golf, ice hockey, lacrosse, rugby union, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and field, ultimate, volleyball, and wrestling.
MUHS teams have won 24 WIAA state titles in soccer, volleyball, tennis, baseball, and football, as well as the lacrosse team's 2010 WLF state championship. In the summers of 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 the Hilltoppers were ranked #1 in the state for overall boys' athletics by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The basketball team was 84-29 in five seasons from 1997 to 2002. The team won the 1999 Greater Metro Conference and WISAA Division I State Boys Basketball Championships, when the Hilltoppers went 21-3 and defeated Dominican High School in the championship game. The basketball team also won Greater Metro conference championships in the 1997-98 and 1999-2000 seasons. In 2010, the Hilltopper basketball team made it to the WIAA Division I state semifinals amid a run that saw them defeat several tournament favorites before losing to eventual champion Arrowhead.
The MUHS cross country team has won the Greater Metro Conference meet 8 of the last 9 year, and took third at both the 2007 and 2008 WIAA state meets, as well as second in both 2009 and 2010.

The lacrosse team annually competes against other Jesuit schools from around the United States, traveling to Indianapolis every spring where Jesuit teams from across the Midwest gather to compete.
Since 1973, the soccer program has won 20 state championships and tied a national record of 10 straight state championships from 1994 to 2003. The Hilltoppers were ranked #1 in the country by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America in 1999 and in 2003.

Since the merger, Marquette has won seven WIAA team state titles (in 2002, 2003, 2007,2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011), five WIAA state singles titles, and two WIAA state doubles titles.
