The Elev8 Program at Marquette School of Excellence is a dynamic community school initiative with a goal to connect families with a variety of resources to help them thrive as community members. During the 2015-2016 school year, Elev8 offered over 30 different enrichment programs at Marquette, including Sculpture, Mikva Challenge, Sisters of Success, Drama Club, and Saturday programs for the whole family. SWOP has offered programming to over 1,100 participants in the past year. Additionally, SWOP has worked diligently with its partner Esperanza, Marquette’s School Based Health Center provider, to make sure all students are medically compliant, by ensuring their physicals and immunizations are up to date.
Elev8 Marquette strives to improve student success by linking learning to real world experiences, while working closely with parents as advocates for reform and equity in education.
SWOP’s successful program model is built on solid relationships formed with families at Marquette. SWOP has worked collaboratively with administration, school staff, students, their families, and a variety of internal and external partners on several advisory committees to ensure that finalized extended learning decisions were inclusive and transparent.
