Martinsville City Public Schools Reviews
In the past four years, I have attended Martinsville High School and although I had a great experience, I also would like to see some changes. Overall, the school has a great environment and strongly encourages everyone to reach their full potential. However, being from a low income city, new teaching tools have are not common. This new generation requires technology to function. Therefore, to keep this school up to date I believe that the school board should invest on new technology to keep students’ minds expanding as our generation does.
There was new staff every year, that did not provide very much of a challenge to students. The softball team does not exist any more due to lack of staff keeping it up, the same thing happened to the key club and interact, but on a positive note, there are less fights than previous years, they are working on better staff, and some current staff make great impacts on childrens' lives and administration is good at helping the less fortunate students as well as the special needs students. They try very hard to ensure student success.
I love my school and the administration. But, I am in an environment of students where some act like they do not care about their education. I would love to be in an environment of people who had a higher outlook and attitude towards school. I also feel as if some of the administration, like guidance counselors, are very poor about giving college advice and help. That is a major thing I have been clueless about and have had to figure out mostly on my own with some guidance from a good friend.
