My experience at Martin High School has been pretty well over the past four years. I like the wide variety of courses that I am able to take that prepare me for my future job, and the assistance they offer me for any college admissions questions I have. The programs offered at Martin, for example Avid, prep you for college by mimicking how a college class would be conducted. The Clubs, Organizations, Sports, and Fine Arts offered at Martin are wonderful and one of a kind. Now having a Quidditch club is as unique and one of a kind you'll get!

The staff and students here are very active both during and outside school hours. The staff collaborates very well with the students parents to guarantee that the students are comfortable and successful during their four years of school here. The clubs and organizations are very diverse with club meeting be held each day during the week. So many hours are spent to making any club activities outside of school enjoyable for the community and the school guests. Very few complaints about this school, i just wish we had more foreign language classes to choose from!
What I liked about Martin High School is that I had many teachers who cared about my future and helped me prepare me for college. My teachers took the time to get to know me, and they knew how to help me differently from other students because not every student learns the same way. Although Martin does not offer all the courses that every student is interested in taking, I like that students can take these classes at another school and the credit still transfers. For example, Martin did not offer IB Dance, but I was still able to be in this class by going to another school in the same district and the credit still counted!
