Since I arrived at August Martin High School as a Junior a lot of changes has taken place. After the appointment of our new principal, Mr. Rory Parnell, thing about the school got better.One of the changes made was the rule of cell phone. Normally students are allowed to bring their cell phone into the classroom, but this usually distract students from learning. Some students will be texting, video calling, listening to music, playing games and so on. The principal changed this. We were not allowed to bring phones into the classroom anymore and when we bring it, it will be collected at the entrance and given back after at the end of the school. This change improved student participation and learning in the class, student became more focused and ultimately led to good grades.

I was new in the neighborhood, people in that school are very sociable , what make me contiene at school. Support from my teachers and friends to pass regents and have great report cards. And I have more opportunities here than in another colleges
You'll probably get a good teacher at the school that could teach but they aren't all good. There's a problem with the kids disrupting classes in the school and some teachers can't handle it. Some teachers in the school are actually good and care about educating kids. If your going in to this school go into the business academy because mr. Summers is amazing, aviation is a close second
