The school is a very small school, we have roughly 600 kids pre-K through senior, and the community is very tight knit. We have been good at baseball and basketball, and since we are such a small school everybody who goes out is garunteed to play a little bit. We are not very diverse but that is just because we live in rural Iowa.

The extracurriculars at this school is average. You have the basic sports like wrestling, basketball, volleyball, track/field, cross country, and football, then there is cheerleading. We also have a few clubs, but not many. The most popular at this school are the sports. Another thing you can do is go to the after school sporting events at night. The volleyball games are the most fun because the student section gets into it and has a lot of fun.
This school is a small school in the middle of Iowa. Its a small community where barely anything dangerous happens. Although bad things can happen anywhere they don't usually happen in Martensdale. I think that the security we have is good at this school. The doors are locked all the time during school hours and only unlocked in the morning before school and after school. Its also very clean. The janitors are great at what the do. The school nurse is also very awesome. She someone that you can go to about anything ranging from a bleeding scratch or you just want to talk to her about something going on.
