Marathon City School District


The Marathon City School District in Wisconsin operates three schools: Marathon Elementary, Marathon High, and Marathon Venture Academy. The district serves students from elementary through high school, with a predominantly white student population across all three schools.

Marathon High stands out as the top-performing school in the district, consistently ranking among the best high schools in Wisconsin and exceeding state averages on standardized tests. The school boasts an impressive 96.6% four-year graduation rate and 0.0% dropout rate, indicating that it is effectively preparing students for post-secondary success. In contrast, Marathon Venture Academy has more mixed academic performance, with some grade levels and subjects exceeding the state average and others falling behind.

While Marathon Elementary also demonstrates strong academic performance, outperforming the state average in English language arts and math, the district as a whole faces challenges in addressing attendance issues, particularly at Marathon High, which has a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate of 18.1%. Additionally, the significant disparity in per-student spending across the schools, ranging from $3,937 at Marathon Venture Academy to $17,476 at Marathon High, suggests an imbalance in resource allocation that the district may need to address.
