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.
I have made some great memories at this school. If I were asked if I would want to do it all over again, I would have to say yes. The friends I have made throughout my years at this school are great. The coaches are also another positive thing at this school. My volleyball coach I had my senior year was especially great. She taught me if I'm not living up to who I want to be, then I need to push myself to be better.
